It isn’t about his five NBA MVP awards, the three NBA All-Star Game MVP awards, or the ten scoring titles. Nor is it about his six NBA Finals MVPs and six NBA Championships. What makes Michael Jordan one of the greatest living basketball player is the way he made the game accessible to everyone. Through his gameplay, his charities, his Jordan Brand Classic that showcase upcoming high school talents, or his ownership of the Charlotte Bobcats, Jordan personifies the game itself.
Ahead of this weekend’s NBA All-Star Game in Houston, the official launch of Air Jordan XX8, and Michael Jordan’s 50th birthday, sporting goods retail chain Champs Sports helped us to compile a list of must-have Jordan Brand items for the occasion. Comprised of Air Jordan I, Air Jordan III, related apparel and accessories, each with the black/neon green design cues from the Air Jordan XX8′s night vision-inspired look. All will be available starting this weekend through a Champs Sports store near you. In the meantime, scroll down to see the collection in its entirety.
