Young Mike memorized  hoop fans with incredible signature dunks and highlights during what may have been his most athletic years of play. Legendary performances including his 63 point game in the ’86 playoffs against the Celtics and his 42 point game against the Knicks in ’98 ( paying homage to the classic shoe) makes the white/red Air Jordan I an easy choice for inclusion in the “Grail” series.
