Air Jordan XII Flu Game

$ 285.00

This Air Jordan 12 is one of the most iconic of the retro lineup with a story that is something that seems like it was scripted for a Hollywood film. In Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals, Michael Jordan woke up with flu-like symptoms. The source of the illness later came under dispute with many pointing to food-poisoning caused by bad pizza the night before the game. Whatever caused MJ to feel sick, he was sick. Despite the illness, Michael Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to a pivotal Game 5 victory to tip the 2-2 series in favor for the Bulls 3-2. Putting up 38 points and 11 boards, MJ was photographed in an iconic snap with Scottie Pippen helping his Airness off the court at the end of the game. His performance while playing ill would earn them the nickname the “Flu Game” Air Jordan 12.
