The 1996-97 season was the middle championship of Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls second three-peat in the 1990s. It was one of 10 seasons where Jordan led the NBA in scoring, averaging 29.6 points per game to go along with 5.9 rebounds and 4.3 assists. Every time Jordan was in an NBA Finals he captured the Finals MVP award, and during the 1996-97 NBA Finals Jordan averaged 32.3 points, seven rebounds and six assists per game to capture his fifth NBA championship. The offered shoes are sourced directly from an NBA ball boy and are attributed to a Bulls game on January 15th, 1997 against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Jordan scored 25 points in a 112-102 victory. Jordan XII size “13” white shoes with red and black trim. On the heel of each shoe reads, “JORDAN” with the number “23” below in white and above is a Jumpman logo. Down the tongue reads, “TWO3” in black stitching. Jordan signed the outside ankle of both shoes in blue marker and in our opinion rates a 6.5 overall. Also included is a Jordan red armband. The insoles have been removed and there is a nice scuff mark on the toe box. Our consignor at the time, who was a Utah Jazz ball boy, was disappointed he wasn’t able to acquire Jordan’s gamers after the Bulls played the Jazz. He went on a mission to trade for these specific shoes which were made available to him from the game against the Timberwolves. The Timberwolves equipment manager, Clayton Wilson, was able to confirm the source of these shoes for our consignor. These shoes are properly tagged, were presented to us as game-used and show wear. Accompanied by a Full LOA from JSA and a Ball Boy LOA.
