As The Glove entered the Basketball Hall Of Fame this September after a decorated career, lets look through a batch of classic images and count down his very best sneakers.
Ranging from the Zoom GP series, an assortment of Jordan player exclusives, some of Nike's best mid-90s models, and of course, The Glove, we've got Gary's entire 17-year career covered ahead.
A career where he was named to the All-Defensive First Team and All-Star Game nine times each, won Olympic Gold Medals in both 1996 and 2000, and would later win an NBA Championship in 2006 with the Miami Heat.
Let us know about your favorite moments from GP's career, which pairs you had growing up and how you'd rank them below in the comments section. And yes, there were other great shoes he wore like the Air Alarm and Maestro '96, and he also had a few sweet Jordan IX Low PEs and other XIIs, but we kept this strictly to his very best on-court kicks.
Enjoy, and congrats GP!!
