When the 2016–17 NBA season had begun, expectations had been unpresuming. Now that twenty-six games have passed, the Chicago Bulls are currently averaging at 13-13 and this Sunday afternoon, the team returned to basics. Apparently, the Bulls are going through “training camp” of sorts. This past Friday, the Bulls suffered their third consecutive loss, this time against the Milwaukee Bucks. Fred Hoiberg, the head coach for the Bulls, felt that it was time that his team had the season’s best practice yet. Even though the Bulls have been struggling, Jordan Brand will always regard them as Michael Jordan’s former team, and have yet again drawn inspiration from them.
This Sunday’s practice session was the longest the Chicago Bulls have been through, spanning for two and a half hours. Furthermore, unlike previous practices that the Bulls have had, considerably more scrimmaging was featured in this one. All the members of the Bulls present there engaged in training camp type drills on the first day. Despite the three-game downward spiral, the Chicago Bulls roster proved to be quite energetic during the practice. Fred claims that the Bulls “still have to fight” and play more consistently, despite their recent three-point loss to the Bucks. Hopefully, all this hard work by the Bulls will carry over.
Sneakerheads will likely agree that Jordan Brand has dropped the Air Jordan 31 in some of the cleanest colorways. Jordan Brand has added yet another installment to the ever-growing Air Jordan 31 line with this brand new Chicago Bulls-inspired rendition. As can be seen, the leather and woven uppers of the sneaker are predominantly clean White, topped off with Black-colored accents all over. Most noticeably, these include the dispersed pattern over the toe boxes and the large Jordan “Jumpman” logo on the sides. The Flywire, gradient midsoles and insole branding also feature hits of Red. Adding the finishing signature touch, Black-colored fading Nike “Swoosh” logos can also be spotted on the sides.
This sneaker could end up being among Jordan Brand’s Jordan releases 2017, but then again it may end up hitting the shelves in 2016. As of now, Jordan Brand has not dropped any hints as to when exactly this Chicago Bulls-inspired Air Jordan 31 will make its way to retailers.
