Ok, Per Jordan's book "For the love of the game"..The excerp goes like this, which comes directly from Jordan's own words:
NIKE HAD AN ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN IN MIND. BUT THEY WERE AFRAID TO PUT IT INTO MOTION UNTIL THEY SAW ME PLAY. I STARTED THE 1984-85 SEASON WEARING THE "BLACK/RED" SHOE. "THREE" GAMES INTO THE SEASON, THE NBA DID US A HUGE FAVOR. THE LEAGUE BANNED THE SHOE BECAUSE IT DIDN'T CONFORM TO THE REST OF THE BULLS UNIFORMS. BUT I KEPT WEARING THEM AND DAVID STERN STARTED FINING ME. I THINK IT STARTED OUT AT $1000 A GAME, THEN WENT TO $3000, AND EVENTUALLY $5,000. NIKE DIDN'T BLINK. NIKE SAID THEY WERE WILLING TO PAY EVERY PENNY AND I TOTALLY AGREED. IT WOULD HAVE COST MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO COME UP WITH A PROMOTION THAT PRODUCED AS MUCH PUBLICITY AS THE LEAGUE'S BAN DID. THE WHOLE THING WORKED PERFECTLY. THE FIRST COMMERCIAL SHOWED MY HEAD, AND THE CAMERA SLOWLY MOVED DOWN MY BODY TO MY FEET. WHEN THE CAMERA HIT THE SHOES A BIG "X" WAS STAMPED ON THE SCREEN AND THE ANNOUNCER SAID, "BANNED". RIGHT AFTER THAT, SALES WENT CRAZY.
So this is what I have come up with so far:
Per Jordan's Statement Wore Black/Red shoes before David Stern bans shoes, keeps wearing shoes per/ Nike,Proserv to pick up fines
(Game #1)Oct 26th 1984 Washington Bullets
(Game #2)Oct 27th 1984 Mil Bucks
(Game #3)Oct 29th 1984 Mil Bucks
(Game #7) Nov. 8th 1984 *Documented pic..B/W against NY Knicks (Black/Red Air Ships)(Per image posted on NT)
Chronological image dating by the SI Jordan first cover dated Dec 10th 1984 (Images within the magazine) (SI)
? Game date .. (Wearing White/Red Ships) Detroit @ Chicago ...first regular season game is Dec. 11th 1984, obviously not the game from the regular season...must be preseason game (SI)
(Game #11)Nov. 17th 1984 Phi. Sixers @ Chicago: Photo demonstrates Jordan wearing the Air Jordan I Red/White/Black pair (SI) ****Noting that I came up with this date because since the image was included in the Dec 10th issue of Sports Il, Its the only date that the Bulls played the Sixers at home prior to Dec 10th.
(Game #12) Nov. 19th 1984 Indiana Pacers @ Chicago: Photo demonstrates Jordan wearing the Nike White/Red Air Ship(SI)
(Game #13)Nov. 21st 1984 Chicago @ Mil. Bucks: Which was used for the Dec 10th 1984 Cover of Jordan wearing White/Red Ships-
****Noting that this is the 3rd meeting between the two teams, "Prior to" the Dec 10 SI cover was done, taking into consideration that the two other times were games #2-#3 which by Jordan's own words he was wearing the Black/Red Shoes
(Game #17) Nov. 29th 1984 (1st West Coast Road Trip) Chicago @ Pho. Suns: Photo demonstrates Jordan wearing the Nike White/Red Air Ship(SI)
(Game 18 Nov. 30th 1984 Chicago @ LA Clippers: Photo Demonstrates Jordan wearing Nike All White version of Ships.
Now things that come to my head. How many actual games did Jordan get fined for wearing the Black/Red Shoes? By the images in the Sports Ill. Cover Dec 10th 1984 Jordan briefly wore the Prototypes of the Air Jordan Is Red/Black/White...but for how many games? Must be only for a couple of games... I have undocumented games from Game #8-10)..These three games, Jordan was either still wearing the black/red pair and still getting fined? By game #11 He wore the Red/Black/White Jordan Is ...The very next game (Game #12) which is the Sports ILL cover shot...he switched to the white/red ships...etc...
Ok, now I have a headache....Guys, your turn to fill in the blanks!
