Hall of Fame Unveils Michael Jordan Exhibit

It was stated in early April that Michael Jordan would be inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame this September. In honor of this great feat, the James Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame has unveiled a new exhibit that allows fans and visitors to remember Jordan’s extensive legacy and accomplishments.

This newly-designed exhibit, which is a partnership product of Jordan Brand, Nike and the previously mentioned Basketball Hall of Fame, is officially named ‘Become Legendary: The Story of Michael Jordan‘. Included in this timeless portrayal will be various footwear, apparel and a collection of photos, videos, quotes and artifacts pertaining to Michael Jordan himself. It was only right for the Hall of Fame to give Jordan his own section seeing that he contributed more than you can imagine to the game of basketball.

“As Jordan Brand embarks on the silver anniversary celebration of the AIR JORDAN franchise, we are thrilled with the Basketball Hall of Fame’s efforts to honor Michael Jordan, the Hall’s Class of 2009 and their contributions to the game of basketball,” said Sean Tresvant, Director of Marketing for Jordan Brand.

Become Legendary: The Story of Michael Jordan‘ will be available for public display throughout 2009. On a bigger note, Jordan’s enshrinement will be the weekend of September 10-12th.

While the Fusion series has a love/hate relationship with many, it has been nice to see the AJF 4 series release in all of the OG colorups.

These are available now online for $145 directly from NikeStore.
