You’re not a true superstar until you step into Madison Square Garden.
Michael had a historic night, scoring 42 points while hitting 17 field goals and 7 free-throws. It was an offensive showing on par with the Michael Jordan standard, but did you catch what was on his feet? in 1998, Jordan was rocking the Air Jordan XIII, but for this occasion, he wore an original pair of the Air Jordan 1 in the White/Red/Black.
Ahmad Rashad who MJ's closest friends, gave the people watching at home a quick story on Jordan’s feelings towards Madison Square Garden and what this game specifically meant to MJ in the latter part of his final season with the Bulls. “I was joking with my wife and I said, ‘You know what? We’re going back to New York, why not break out the old shoes?’ It’s been a long time since I wore them. It’s kinda fun to come back here and play and remember the some old days and some of the games I played here and the shoes are a part of that,” Jordan said in his post-game interview with Rashad.
