Even years after retiring, Michael Jordan continues to break records.
A pair of game-worn sneakers sported by the NBA legend during the gold-medal game between the United States and Spain at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles sold for a whopping $190,373 on Sunday and set a new auction record for game-used shoes, ESPN reported.
The black and white Converse included his orthotic inserts and were autographed by Jordan.
“The record-shattering price proves that Michael Jordan has no equal in the marketplace for game-used basketball memorabilia,” Dan Imler, vice president of SCP Auctions, told ESPN.
The previous record, which was also held by Jordan, was for his “Flu Game” sneakers worn during Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals between the Bulls and Jazz. The signed “sick” shoes sold for $104,765 in 2013.
With LeBron on the bench, everything is running through Kyrie. He has little to show for it though.
Avery Bradley tries to put Richard Jefferson on a poster but gets rim-stuffed. Almost a nasty flush.
Jerebko airballs a wide open 3-pointer. Crowder and Horford are both on the bench with two fouls.
Olynyk uses his body and inside arm to shield LeBron ona layup. LeBron quickly answers with a reverse layup of his own, spinning around Olynyk.
Jae Crowder is feeling it. He gets a few friendly bounces on his 3-point attempt. Boston leads 20-13.
Love finds LeBron in transition for the flush. Not sure there’s a defense in the world that can stop that.
