Sept. 10 - Rumors for next year: yellow suede "Ferrari" Retro 14 & Retro 11 Low navy snakeskin.
Sept. 3 - Why are the grape 5's coming out on a Tuesday? Because Sept. 25th is Will Smith's birthday, so it makes sense to release the "Fresh Prince" Retro 5's on that day. It won't have any laces and the lace holes will be sealed shut. Why? Because that's how Will wore them on the show.

Sept. 1 - Thanks to Jimmy Butler's association with the Jordan Brand, a Minnesota Timberwolves color of the Retro 6 will be releasing in October.
August 8 - When MJ won the Rookie of the Year award in 1985 he wore a light brown shirt during his acceptance speech that you can watch here. On Oct. 13th, a Retro 1 HI OG is coming out as a reminder of that moment.
August 1 - The original white/grey Air Jordan XIX (19) from 2004 will be coming out next year.
July 31 - A Retro 1 inspired by a 1984 Sports Illustrated cover is coming out this fall. Ironically, MJ hates Sports Illustrated and hasn't talked to them in over 20 years after they wrote a negative story about him in 1994.
July 31 - It's not the AJ XI, but it's pretty close. It's called the Jordan Future. It's a casual shoe (i.e. not for basketball) with a smooth nubuck upper and it should be coming to stores soon.
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.
