Ever since I started working out of the Dime office, I noticed the UPS man comes around at least five times a day. Today he delivered a box from our guys at Mitchell & Ness.

After doing some simple math in in my head, I realized that was the night Air Jordan started his legacy in the NBA.
Obviously we all know that MJ is in Springfield today getting his name officially cemented in history. These t-shirts coincide with Mitchell & Ness’ super dope Jordan jersey packages that have been selling like Jay-Z concert tickets.
