Well, I do not know where to begin.

1st off Gentry is desperate. He can see the end of the ed out saying these things is this:

A whole lot of @#%$ has changed in Gentry's mind in the last couple of weeks/month.

1st - Forget about seeing exact replica's appear. The Days of '99 are done and no one is even thinking of bringing it back 1 more time.

This goes for quality,colors,and the return of us seeing any "Nike Air". Sure there will be some coming out I.E. the AJ III etc. but for the most part there will always be some small changes done to the shoe.

2nd - be on the look out for a whole lot of Retro + headed our way.

3rd - The Team Line will be the future corner stone of Brand Jordan. This retro craze will in fact slow down and demand will lower/subside.

Now has JB done enough of what it will take to survive on the team line alone.
= Not at this point I believe.



This is a vent post by Baby J and probably the one and only time you will witness this. I am probably not making allot of sense right now & I am pretty sure I will go back and read this later and say " oh @#%$, I forgot to mention this n that" or I will look back and say " why the @#%$ I say that".

Thanks for the info. Could JB be really ending within 2 to 3 years from now? If this continues, the end sure looks evident.

Its heading downhill from here....the XXIII will be the peak and then its over
I am getting fed up with Gentry tho he seems to be only thinking for himself and not the true MJ/Air Jordan fans.
They gotta bring XIs i think...I need them!

Baby J can you tell me how long are the retroes gonna last for?

thanks once again for the info

JB, YOUR NOT DONE YET!!!!!!

Fire Gentry, Up the quality, Lower prices, Bring back a few classics, and Don't scrap your signature line!!!! MOST IMPORTANT, BRING BACK THE XIs seeing as they have a lot of life left in them retro classics (ie: concords and space jams) and make them as close to the OGs as possible. Otherwise in 2 years your done.

Unsure about future? We all have experienced/will experience it some time in our lives but having a nervous breakdown now and do it in such an obvious way? Ain't nothing gonna help you if you don't help yourself, G.

Worried about JB's future? Well, scrapping the XIs will speed up the process and if you think it is going to be an ace in your pocket. While you're at it, think about this: when JB crumbles because it has failed to use that ace in your pocket at the right moment, who will be there to use it? JB has always been about challenges and embracing those challenges and yet one of its leaders is contradicting this core value, running around like a chicken with its head cut off and blabbering about info./misinformation that neither shows a clear direction for the brand nor makes any sense all because he is scared.

Playing sorry/repulsive color variations? That's what a desperate man would do in a desperate situation and there's nothing creative about something that is the product of desperation even if it is being pawned off as such. It is really sad seeing a brand that truly symbolizes excellence go out like this.

If you have plan in utilizing the Team line to be the main product, then work your behind off to acheive the result you have set forth for yourself. If it is JB's destiny to close its curtains, then let it be and make a glorious and spectacular exit while you're at it. And please, while it is understandable that all info. is tentative and plans do change (ususally it's for the better but 9 out of 10 times for G, it means it's for the much worse), do NOT drop these nuggets of half-baked ideas anymore. It really makes one wonder how JB/Nike can have someone so clueless in its employment at such a significant position or if Isiah Thomas is secretly running things at JB now.

I am glad the retro line will faze out.Because my money is running out.But to be real with you I really believe the retro line is nowhere near done.NIke/Jordan brand is taking there idea's of these crazy colorways from the fake varients makers with more off the wall colors.So in truth the things Gentry said might have been the liquor talking if hes a drinking man.Did we not read this same crap last year that the 2006 would have alot less retros released in a sole collector interview with him last year.I think its B.S. and hype.But I could be wrong and Babyjordan is allways a source of good information.
