The 6-game road trip of the Chicago Bulls just concluded on Sunday in Minnesota. Considering that a number of members of the Chicago Bulls roster are either ill or injured, it was not surprising that they did not manage to end their road trip with a 3-3 record. In their first game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Chicago Bulls ended up losing with a score of 99-94 due to the absence of players like Dwayne Wade, Jimmy Butler and many others. Hopefully, the Bulls have better days ahead of them and here Michael Jordan can be seen rocking the Air Jordan 6 “Alternative” that is inspired by them.
For fans of the Chicago Bulls, their game against the Minnesota Timberwolves must have been hard to watch, even though they lost by just five points. Not only was the game bad, it was also quite predictable. By halftime, the Bulls were seventeen points behind, with the Timberwolves leading the way with a score of 57-40. For some reason, the Bulls were not adequately focusing on their defense, which allowed the Timberwolves to get plenty of free throws and successful shots. The Chicago Bulls obviously performed awfully, but there is still hope that they will pull back from this recent, terrible loss.
The “Alternate” colorways of popular Air Jordan models that Jordan Brand has dropped over the years have always been inspired by the alternate jerseys of various NBA teams. The upcoming “Alternate” colorway of the Air Jordan 6 undeniably draws its inspiration from the alternate jerseys of the Chicago Bulls. Thus, it makes sense for one of their most prominent, former shooting guards to lace up in a pair. In a family photo shared by Michael Jordan’s son Marcus Jordan on his official Twitter account (@HEIRMJ), the G.O.A.T. can be spotted rocking the Air Jordan 6 that sports a Gym Red, Pure Platinum and White color scheme.
The fact that Michael Jordan has laced up in the sneaker probably makes sneakerheads even more eager to get their hands on a pair. Fortunately, they will actually be able to cop a pair of the Air Jordan 6 “Alternate” on March 11th, 2017 at a price of $190.
