Michael Jordan hurt a lot of feelings during the historic 72-10 season that he and the Chicago Bulls had in 1995-96.
So, it's not entirely surprising that he earned some hecklers along the way. What might be surprising to sneaker fans is that some of thosehecklers had the audacity to call out the sneakers MJ was wearing at the time, the Air Jordan 11 "Concords." And yet there it is in the above clip, a rare YouTube video dug up by WhenMachinesCry on Reddit of a Cavs/Bulls game illicitly recorded by a courtside fan.
During the second half, at around the 9 minute mark, one man sitting courtsidecalls out Jordan's shoes.
"Go back to the old ones," he says. "You were better."
Another person chimes in from the stands with "Hey Jordan, your shoes are ugly!"
MJ even acknowledges his detractors in the clip – he makes a wild shot at around the 9:30 markand then points to the heckler and calls him out. Later, from the bench, MJ points again and makes a "shhh" motion.
If MJ's performance that game didn't shut them up, the Bulls' record that year hopefully did.
