Michael Jordan’s Shoes from Legendary “Flu Game” for Sale
This is a tale about the legendary ‘Flu Game’ of the 1997 Finals–Game 5–where Michael Jordan beat the flu, the Jazz, and bequeathed his own Jordans to a former Delta Center ballboy for so thoughtfully bringing him applesauce. It was a glorious win for the Bulls, and a touching tale for Preston Truman who still has those humongous size 13 shoes that no one has yet filled. Truman has turned down invitations to sell them over the years, including an $11,000 offer 16 years ago. Now at 35, he is ready to part with them. The auction opens on November 18–check it out here.
