Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley are two of the greatest players to ever play the game of professional basketball. As we know, one of them was greater than the other. Nonetheless, both were great. Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley are also very good friends. They frequently golf together. If you have ever seen Sir Charles’ sweet golf stroke, you know which one of these guys is greater on the the golf course as well as the court. These two all-time greats had the opportunity to square off against one another on the biggest stage basketball has to offer. The 1993 NBA Finals.
In 1993, Mike and Chuck, along with an ensemble cast that included Scottie Pippen and Kevin Johnson, took the court to decide once and for all who was the real NBA regular season MVP. You see, that season, Charles Barkley was crowned MVP despite the gaudy numbers Michael had put up, he averaged 33 points,7 rebounds, and 6 assists. Many thought that Chuck was helped significantly by the likes of Kevin Johnson and Dan Majerle. Maybe so, but Chuck’s numbers that year were hard to ignore. He averaged 26 points, 12 rebounds, and 6 assists.
The Jordan 6 Rings “Phoenix” edition dropped in 2009 to commemerate this epic NBA Finals might be the most beautiful shoe in the Jordan 6 Rings Championship Pack. But then again, I am a sucker for orange. The silhouette of all of the 6 Rings is taken from the Jordan 11 and is so tight! I am a sucker for the Jordan 11 as well. The white leather upper features laser print graphics that depict Godzilla, Jordan’s hand holding up 3 fingers signifying his 3rd NBA championship ring, and even the mythical bird “Phoenix”. The midsole uses the beautiful orange hue. Yes! The tongue has “Two 3” in orange lettering and a multi-colored fuzzy Jumpman logo in purple, grey, and black at the top. A portion of the outsole on the forefoot also depicts Godzilla and the “Phoenix” under a translucent clear sole. Nice! There are still pairs of this epic Jordan shoe available. Sweet!
Both Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley had Hall of Fame careers. But Michael ended up with 6 NBA Championship rings. Charles had to settle for some great seasons and an MVP award that year. So what are Mike and Chuck up to these days? Michael is busy as the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats while Charles is doing his thing on TNT as the most honest and funny TV analyst basketball has ever had. Mike and Chuck still remain friends. And they still golf together. And, like the rest of us, Jordan still has to watch Charles’ horrendous golf swing.
