Micheal Jeffrey Jordan well known as 'MJ' (born in 1963 on 17th February) is a former American professional basketball player (the greatest basketball player of all time) and currently a renowned businessman. Apart from his legacy on the basketball court, one of his all time famous quotes that I find great and relatable to his career is;

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."

His greatness is undoubtedly something everyone including himself must be proud of till now despite him no longer gracing the basketball courts anymore. Greatness comes with value and this also applies any great person's possessions. It has been seen before and the trend will forever continue where great athletes are highly valued down to their possessions as simple as a shirt, vest, shorts, sneakers and many other things.

Talking of valued possessions from great athletes of all time, Micheal Jeffrey Jordan (MJ) cannot afford to be exempted from the list of athletes whos attires have a great value and sold out for millions of dollars (probably top on the list). MJ's sneakers (Air Jordan 13s) worn during his last NBA game in June 5th 1998 at the Delta Center, have been the main talk worldwide after they sold out for a whopping $2.2 million at an auction hence making them the most expensive sneakers ever sold. This comes a few months (September 2022) after his famous number 23 jersey that he also wore during his last NBA game sold out for a whopping $10.1 million.

It is said that in his last NBA game (Chicago Bulls vs Utah Jazz), the Chicago Bulls lost in the first round/half of the game to Utah Jazz but come the second round/half after MJ wore the Air Jordan 13s sneakers, he managed to score 37 points against the Utah Jazz helping the Chicago Bulls emerge victorious. Later on after the game (according to the auction house), MJ gave the sneakers to a ball boy who did maintenance activities/services in the locker room to sign them as a way of appreciating his services.

MJ's last NBA game dubbed "The Last Shot" by NBA was super awesome and worth watching as seen in the below video posted by NBA;

The world of sneakers could be a dynamic embroidered artwork woven with strings of history, development, and enthusiasm. The sneakers related with "The Last Dance" stand as landmarks to Michael Jordan's unparalleled bequest and the persevering charm of the Air Jordan brand. As collectors and devotees enthusiastically anticipate another chapter in sneaker history, one thing remains certain is the travel of the foremost costly sneaker shoes is distant from over, and the most excellent may be however to come.
