Air Jordan Force V "Grey Nurse"

Air Jordan will soon be releasing a new Air Jordan Force V "Grey Nurse" at Air Jordan Flight Club.

These Air Jordan Force Fusion V’s are loosely modeled on the Hyperion Spitfire MK VIII 253 Grey Nurse, which was Tinker Hatfield’s direct inspiration for the original Air Jordan V’s.

The markings on the heel and toe are taken directly from the decorations on the plane itself, as is the overall grey and black colorway.

For those who have criticized the Force Fusion line of shoes in the past, these kicks are completely true to the history of the Air Jordan V, as they use Hatfield’s primary inspiration as the primary motif of the design.

Look for the drop at Air Jordan Flight Club on 05/02/2008 for $175/

Air Jordan 1 Retro "Fathers Day"

Michael Jordan, Save the World

A sculpture artist by the name of Norman Paris caught my attention on my daily during my search for mindless content to keep the site fresh with new intresting information.


Norman Paris’s sculpture and drawings are generated out of a search for heroes finding meaning and gallantry in pop culture figures as he examines the need for icons as both an individual and universal phenomenon.

In April of 2005 Norm displayed his "Michael Jordan, Save the World" installation at the Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia.


Even though this is old news, I thought everyone would really enjoy the work of this artist considering the irony that Norm grew up in Clevland as a Cav's fan hating Michael Jordan for obvious reasons.


Here are a few screen shots from the Studioscopic interview Norm did discussing the "Michael Jordan, Save the World" installation.

Air Jordan IV Black Cement

It's official!

The Air Jordan IV's to be released in the 4/19 Count Down Pack will be the classic Black/Cement color scheme.

Of course everyone would love to have the NIKE AIR on the back, but the Jumpman doesn't really bother me as long as they don't include the " A I R " underneath it like all the retro III's.

No release date at this time.

Thank your favorite early release bandit Air Randy for the pictures.

Marcus Jordan at the Houston Kingwood Classic



There was once a time when Marcus Jordan felt immense pressure when he stepped on the basketball floor. Considering that his father is a six-time NBA champion, that's understandable.

Now, as a 17-year-old junior, Michael Jordan's youngest son is busy establishing his own identity — as perhaps one of the top prep guard prospects in the class of 2009.

"There was pressure on me when I was in seventh and eighth grade because I thought that I had to be my dad," Marcus said. "Now that I've gotten older, I'm making my own name."

Marcus Jordan rockin' the number 5 in action at the Houston Kingwood Classic on Saturday.

Marcus, a 6-3, 180-pound guard from Whitney Young High School in Chicago, is playing in one of the premier basketball recruiting events in the nation, the 14th annual Houston Kingwood Classic. Here with his Amateur Athletic Union squad, the Rising Stars, while trying to make a positive impression on the hundreds of college coaches in attendance for the three-day event, which is headquartered at Legends Sports Complex.

Rising stock-

The event has 681 teams playing on 66 courts across the area in a 48-hour span. The 17-and-under platinum division will played its championship game at 3:15 p.m. at Legends.

Marcus, who isn't nationally ranked but was rated as one of the top 10 prospects in the state of Illinois by, thinks he has plenty to offer to Division I schools. He describes his game as "solid," and some recruiting analysts think he could emerge as a major college prospect.

"I want to get everyone involved but I score when there's an opportunity," Marcus said. "I just try to run the team."

Madison junior guard Tommy Mason-Griffin, whose AAU squad Houston Hoops defeated the Rising Stars on Friday night, had good things to say about Marcus.

"He's a pretty good player," Mason-Griffin said. "He's quick and he has a solid midrange game."

Not quite like Mike-

As he and his Rising Stars teammates played a Saturday morning game against the Alabama Challenge, his skills were on full display. At first glance, it isn't easy to tell he's Jordan's son. He has a goatee and headband as well as goggles and he dons the No. 5 on his jersey.
"I just go and play my game," he said. "I'm sure people look at me and say 'Oh, that's Michael Jordan's son,' but I don't even think about that. I just play."

He might not feel much pressure these days, but there always is a lot of attention focused on him.

"The attention is crazy," said John Hicks, who chaperones Marcus when he's traveling with the team.

Marcus said he's not sure who's actively recruiting him because his parents handle the recruiting process. But he does hope to continue playing basketball.

"I definitely want to play Division I basketball," he said.

Air Jordan I Armed Forces Pack

Late next month, Jordan Brand is set to release a two sneaker tribute to James Ronald "Ronnie" Jordan. Ronnie Jordan, Michael Jordan's older brother, served 31 years in the Armed Forces, 1 more year than the required serving time as he chose to accompany his brigade through a 1 year tour of duty through Iraq.

Jordan, who stands about 5 feet 7 inches and is 48, rose to become command sergeant major of the 35th Signal Brigade, the Army's only airborne signal brigade, based at Fort Bragg. His rank is the top job for an enlisted signal soldier.

"Jordan may be short in height when it comes to his brother, but, man, he scored a slam dunk every time as a sergeant major," said Command Sgt. Maj. Joseph Allen, the senior noncommissioned officer of Fort Bragg and the 18th Airborne Corps.

To commemorate Ronnie Jordan's time of service, Jordan Brand created the Armed Forces Pack. As part of this pack, Jordan Brand is set to release two pairs of Air Jordan Retro 1s. The first "Armed Forces" Air Jordan Retro 1 features a Dark Brown Nubuck/Light Brown Pebbled Leather upper with a frayed Army Green Canvas swoosh. The color choice was selected to mirror the colors on a soldiers uniform.

To commemorate, Ronnie's rank, Jordan Brand placed an embroidered rank emblem at the outer heel of the sneaker. The rank emblem closely resembles the rank emblem Ronnie held but was slightly altered to respect the Armed Service and the soldiers that obtain the rank.

The "Armed Forces" Air Jordan Retro 1 is scheduled to release in late May in the States and has already released overseas.

Maybe it's my fault...

The Jordan Brand continues the "BECOME LEGENDARY" campaign with another thought provoking commercial.

I can summarize this commercial best by quoting the man himself:

"Nothing of value comes without being earned"


APRIL 6, 1981

This might not seem like an important date in history, but I found something today that changed my mind.

This is the day that Mike got his first real taste of the spotlight.

This was an ad McDonalds ran in the April 6th, 1981 issue of the Sports Illustrated for the 1981 High School Basketball All-American Team which also featured Patrick Ewing and Chris Mullen.

For a young country boy from North Carolina this must of been a proud moment in his life.

Little did Mike, or anyone else know at the time, but this was very beginning of something huge, something gigantic, something larger then life.

Looking back over 27 years it's difficult to really understand this magnitude of Mike's impact on the world we live in.

Thanks for all the memories Mike!

Video of Mike Shattering a Backboard in a 1986 Nike Exhibition Game in Italy

Enjoy this ridiculous video from 1986 of Mike in Italy for a Nike Exhibition game.

This is maybe the illest glass shattering dunk I have ever seen in my life!

The poor guys under the backboard had no clue when the glass started coming down and just poured all over them!

Thats fucking embarassing.

Here's more footage from this game.
