Air Jordan 1 Rookie of the Year 555088-700

Jordan Brand will be releasing an upcoming Air Jordan 1 Rookie of the Year that’s inspired by what Michael Jordan wore during his Rookie of the Year acceptance speech.

Advertisment

On April 30, 1985, Michael Jordan accepted the NBA’s Rookie of the Year honors. During the year, he averaged 28.2 points per game and led the Chicago Bulls to a playoff berth. In Michael Jordan fashion, his acceptance speech was short and funny.

“Hopefully next year will be more promising,” he says, “If not, maybe I’ll retire after two years.”
