    my best educated guess is that the pic is from the US Olympic trials prior to his signing of his Nike contract and before setting foot in the NBA.

    Some people get shocked when they see an old pic of MJ in high school, or the Olympic games, wearing something other than Nike.

    MJ favored adidas before he entered the league, in fact, we all know that if it wasn't for Nike offering him his own signature line, he would have signedwith adidas in a hearbeat.

    and if it wasnt for Jordan, Nike would not be as successful as it is today.

    i have to disagree with frenchblue23: (AND I MAY BE WRONG). but previously i remember reading that jordan favoured CONVERSE. i think he is wearing them whilehe takes the shot at UNC. i think when asked if he would have signed between nike and adidas he said he favoured adidas because at the time it probably had agreater fan base. once again this is totally off memory....

    wasn't the original idea of the DMP was to include the Converse shoe he wore when UNC won the 84 NCAA championship?
