In the fourth part of this exclusive twenty-five chapter look at the For The Love Of The Game showcase series, the Air Jordan IV is splashed with Pantone 284, celebrating Michael's roots and passion for the game of basketball. Read along through each chapter as Michael tells his story and explains his love of the game.

"If you get paid a dime or a dollar or nothing, you should still be playing the game of basketball no matter what. My love of the game grew because I was cut when I was in high school and that disappointment, that negative response I got back, propelled me to say I got something to prove to that individual that cut me. I got something to prove to the people that didn't think I could achieve." -- Michael Jordan [Quote 1 of 5]
