Jordan brand looks to honor one of Michael Jordans biggest rivals in the ’90s as an Air Jordan 3 is dedicated to the Knicks and the “Virus Game”. 

If you’re a fan of basketball or Michael Jordan you have probably heard of the ‘Virus Game”. If not, you’re probably a little too young as the game went down in the late ’80s. As a member of the Chicago Bulls, Michael Jordan came down with a stomach virus on gameday. Not just any gameday, the Chicago Bulls were playing one of their rivals the New York Knicks and with the Goat mentality, MJ could not let his team play without him. With a stomach virus and all, Michael Jordan played and played extremely well. He went to put up 47 points in a Chicago Bulls win over the Knicks.

Honoring the Knicks and the “Virus Game” this Air Jordan 3 gets dressed for the occasion. The upper arrives in white tumbled leather and features blue and orange contrasting accents throughout as a shout out to the Knicks. Honoring the Virus Game, 04.08.88 arrives on the inner tongue, the date of the game.
