The Nike “Champions Think 16” pack was recently revealed, consisting of a handful of coveted silhouettes from the brand. Among them is the Air Jordan 14 in the famed “Last Shot” colorway, exciting Jordan heads around the world.
The 1998 NBA Finals were tough. Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls were seemingly worn out after over a decade of dominating basketball, and still fresh off back-to-back NBA championships. While the Bulls were able to limp into the finals, no one expected them to make it out alive. The ensuing back-and-forth, game-by-game battle between the Utah Jazz and Chicago Bulls was one for the history books. Marked by close games and alternating victories, the series was finished by one of the most monumental moments in NBA basketball. With seconds left on the clock, Michael Jordan out-maneuvered the Jazz’ Bryon Russell with just a quick shuffle of his feet, creating enough space to hit a quick two-pointer and securing an 87-86 lead. The infamous “Last Shot” would seal the Bulls’ sixth Jordan-era NBA championship, and go down as the last two points Mike would ever score for the Chicago Bulls.
The Air Jordan 14 “Last Shot” first appeared in stores after the shot, in 1999. This was a while after Mike had already debuted them on-court, so the craze for the latest Jordans was at an all-time high. Additionally, sneakerheads everywhere were clamoring for the coveted last pair of Bulls-themed Jordans that Mike wore on-court. The all-black colorway of the Air Jordan 14 is broken up by red Jordan logos, which include several Jumpman emblems and 23 branding on the heel. Finally, the 14 is completed by the yellow Ferrari-inspired Jumpman shield on either side.
