An olive color of the Travis Scott 4's will be coming out. No release date yet, but maybe in the fall. Photo

Retro Rumors. The black/infrared 6 that Mike wore in 1991 against Magic might be releasing in Feb. A new black/gold color of the AJ 19 might come out in April. And the bred 4 with Nike Air on the heel is expected to come out in either Feb. or April.

Concord XI's will have #45. Releasing in December for $220. Instead of #23 the shoe will have #45 on the heel. Thankfully, the black patent leather will have a higher cut like the OG from 1995.

The "SHOT on Ehlo" almost didn't happen. In May 1989, the Bulls were down 1 to the Cavs with 3 seconds left in an elimination game. During the final timeout, Bulls Coach Doug Collins began to draw up a play for Dave Corzine to take the shot. Michael slammed the coach's clipboard with his fist and yelled, "Give me the f*cking ball! " While heading back onto the court, Mike whispered to Craig Hodges, "I'm going to make it." We all know what happened next.

Utah fan talks trash to Mike. In a game against the Jazz in 1987, Jordan got the ball in the post, turned, and dunked on John Stockton. A Jazz fan in the crowd yelled, "Hey Jordan! Pick on someone your own size!" On the very next play, Mike got the ball, flew in the air, and dunked on Mel Turpin, Utah's 6'11" center. As MJ ran back on defense he looked at the fan and said, "Is he big enough?" Click here for the video.

Tinker Hatfield designed the Air Jordan 3 and created the infamous Jumpman logo. In 1987 he originally put a Nike swoosh on the side of the shoe, but at the last minute changed his mind. He knew Michael was not happy with the AJ 2, so he needed to make the AJ 3 special. Here's a look at the shoe he originally envisioned. Released in select stores on April 30th.

Bulls are down 1 with 4.1 seconds left. Against the Pistons. Dumars is guarding MJ. Pippen inbounds the ball to Cartwright. Cartwright gives it to Jordan. Then this happened.

XII (Red suede). Here we go again. Last year it was rumored that a red suede Retro 12 would release during the 2017 holiday. That never happened. Now it's believed to be releasing during the 2018 holiday. The sad part is that fake pairs of this shoe have been selling in China for over a year. All of the online pics of the shoe are of the knockoff pairs.

Vindicates in 2019? JB has a history of re-releasing shoes for their 20th anniversary. This hasn't been confirmed, but we predict the Vindicate's from 1999 will release again in 2019. Vin Baker wore them back in the day. He was a 4-time All-Star and Olympic gold medalist. Unfortunately, alcohol and drugs tainted his NBA career. The $100 million he made from his career is gone. After finally getting clean and sober he called his former boss. The CEO of Starbucks also owned the SuperSonics when Baker played in Seattle. Baker gave him a call and asked for help. That's how Baker ended up becoming a manager at a Starbucks. You can read about his road to recovery in his book, God and Starbucks.

#45 to #23. In May 1995 against Orlando, Mike 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 he was the only Bull with white shoes on (Concord XI's). The NBA considered that a uniform violation and fined him for not wearing black shoes like the rest of his teammates. This was also the first game that he debuted the coveted patent leather Air Jordan XI.

MJ's former mansion. MJ's house in the Chicago burbs is still for sale. Real estate experts say that it's overpriced for the area because of the location. Here's a detailed Youtube video of the house that has it's own basketball gym, a cigar room, and more! (Pippen lived in a house just a couple minutes away).

Bulls tried to trade Pippen for McGrady, but Jordan said NO. Tracy McGrady was drafted by the Toronto Raptors in 1997. A few days before the draft Bulls management had a secret meeting with McGrady. Their plan was to trade Pippen to Toronto, but Michael wasn't okay with that. He wasn't going to have his 'brother' traded away for some high school kid, so the deal never happened. Watch McGrady tell the story.

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. After a few years, the Bulls organization restructured Michael's contract and gave him more money, but it was still peanuts compared to what players are getting today.
