Pair of Air Jordans Auctioned Off for $100,000
Former Utah Jazz ball boy and now 35-year-old Preston Truman had a pair of Michael Jordan's shoes he wore in Game 5 (known as the Flu Game) of the Chicago Bulls-Utah Jazz series and auctioned them off to the tune of $104,735 to a buyer, according Bleacher Report.
The bidding started Nov. 17th at $5,000 and was sold on Thursday. The shoes were given to him by Jordan after Thurman gave Mike fluids during the game and sort of assisted MJ during the game in which he had the Flu.
Jordan finished Game 5 with 38 points and the Chicago Bulls won and eventually took the Series over the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals in 1997.
