It’s just like Michael Jordan to put up a highlight against the Utah Jazz. This play occurred in 1993 though, well before his game-winners during his second repeat.
On this highlight, Jordan grabbed a rebound as the game clock was ticking down. He had to maneuver around Ty Corbin and Jeff Malone to get to the half-court logo. Instead of just going up, MJ double-clutched on the heave. The clock hit 0.00 as Mike backpedaled, admiring the net splash as his half-court shot goes in. No big celebration came afterwards, just a lighthearted clap from Michael.
The sneakers that he rocked in this game was the Air Jordan 7. This sneaker was the first to ditch external Nike branding, as the Jordan Brand was becoming its own entity. The Jordan 7 also ditched visible Air for heel and forefoot Air that provided more cushioning. The shoe was noticeably lighter than the past 6 signature shoes, with a neoprene bootie reducing weight on the upper. Visually, the shoe takes elements from African art, with the sharp lines being inspired by African tribal patterns.
