A special Retro 13 & 14 will be releasing in June. The XIII will be in White/Gold and the XIV will be in Black/Gold. The colors are celebrating MJ's sixth championship. The gold represents the NBA trophy. Other details like the '98 on the heel of the XIV and the '98 on the hologram of the XIII have been added.
In May 1995 against Orlando, MJ decided to stop wearing the #45 and go back to the #23. Click here to watch highlights of that game. Look closely and you'll see that MJ was the only Bull with white shoes on. The NBA considered that a uniform violation and fined him for not wearing black shoes like the rest of his teammates.
In September 1984, the Bulls signed Michael Jordan to a 7-year deal for only $6 million. That's less than $1 million per year! That's unreal compared to the money NBA players are getting today. After a few years the Bulls' organization restructured his contract and gave him more money.
Video: MJ's former house. MJ's house in the north suburbs of Chicago is still for sale. Real estate experts say that it's overpriced for the area (asking price is around $15 million) because it's not on the lake and it's right next to the train tracks. Here's a detailed YouTube video of the house that has it's own basketball gym, 9 bedrooms, 19 bathrooms, a cigar room, and more and here's a slideshow with 34 pictures. (Scottie Pippen lived in a house just a couple minutes away).
