DJ Delz reviews the Air Jordan 11 Retro Playoffs + OG comparison

The return of Jumpman Jordan.

It was April 26, 1996, and the Chicago Bulls were back in the NBA playoffs. Michael Jordan returns to the postseason where elimination is an afterthought. Especially when you were eliminated in the 2nd round of the playoffs the year before. Especially when your regular-season record was 72-10, setting an NBA record at the time. Winning the NBA All-Star Game MVP, the NBA MVP, and the NBA Finals MVP. No, this was retribution, on all those that doubted that it could be done again. And it was.

This was just the beginning of another 3-peat. We didn’t know it at the time but we kinda did. With MJ wearing this pair at the end of the 1996 NBA Finals, hugging the game ball while laying on the floor, remembering his father. It was this pair of sneakers he wore, and we all remember it as the moment ‘His Airness’ rose to the top, again.
