There is no doubt that Michael Jordan’s NBA career as a member of the Chicago Bulls had been nothing short of legendary and unparalleled. During his first 89 games, he scored more than 10 points per game and was scoring 37 points by his third season. Furthermore, in at least 30 games of his career, he even scored at least 50 in each. However, despite the fact that Michael Jordan dominated the court, the G.O.A.T was not without his fair share of rivals. In fact, Jordan Brand has actually drawn inspiration from some the most prominent ones from the 1990s for this upcoming Legacy 312 “Rivals” Pack.
One of Michael Jordan’s most fiercest and noteworthy rivals was undoubtedly Isiah Thomas, who was the point guard of the Detroit Pistons during that era. During the “Bad Boys” era of the Pistons, Isiah proved to be quite a formidable rival for Michael Jordan. Other prominent rivals of Michael Jordan included both John Starks and Patrick Ewing, who were members of the New York Knicks back then. Another one of Michael Jordan’s evenly-matched rivals was Earvin “Magic” Johnson, during the “Showtime” era of Los Angeles Lakers. These are the rivals that Jordan Brand has drawn inspiration from for the latest pack joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018.
Each iteration of the Jordan Legacy 312 from this upcoming “Rivals” Pack is dressed up in the abovementioned teams that Michael Jordan’s rivals played for back in the days. Thus, one is a Pistons-inspired color scheme of Bright Blue, White and University Red. Another is dressed up in a Knicks-inspired color scheme of Black, Rush Blue and Brilliant Orange. The third is dressed up in a Lakers-inspired color scheme of White, Field Purple and Amarillo. As for their construction, their uppers are made up of smooth leather and suede. Each Jordan 312 colorway from this “Rivals” Pack will be retailing for $150 on November 1st, 2018.
