Jackie Robinson 70th anniversary auction to benefit JRF ending April 29
Nobody was stopping Michael Jordan during the 1996-1997 season. Even at 33, MJ still had all the skills that made him the greatest player in NBA history. Jordan averaged a league-leading 29.6 points per game in the regular season, leading the Bulls to a 69-13 record. However, Jordan managed to find another level during the playoffs. The Bulls came up against Karl Malone and the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals. The Bulls won the series in six games, but Jordan’s performance is Game 5 is what truly sealed the series. In what is now known as “The Flu Game,” Jordan poured in 38 points from the field while suffering terribly from a stomach ailment. Jordan as a player, is incomparable and a true giant in a sport of giants.
This red 1996-97 Chicago Bulls Road jersey features “BULLS” sewn on the front in black on white tackle-twill and “JORDAN” on the back in black on white tackle-twill.
