Welcome to another edition of the Best Pickups of the Week

When Michael Jordan missed a wide open fast break dunk in the 2002 NBA All Star game, the world was in shock. It was MJ's first NBA All-Star game back since 1998 and from the looks of it, he wasn't the same dominant player.

What you won't miss are the shoes he wore. The Air Jordan 17 "Lighting" in that white and bright yellow colorway. The Air Jordan 17 has yet to be retroed, despite being in the 2008 Collezione packs, and sneakerheads around the world are yearning for it.

Thanks to Russian Bear, you can relive the moment as a share here in Pickups of the Week! 

If you would like to be highlighted, join the Sole Collector forums and share your photos in the Jordan BrandBasketballSkateboardingRetro and Running & Training forum pickup threads. If chosen, you could see yourself here next week.
