While only lasting two seasons, the Orlando Magic vs. the Chicago Bulls was one of the NBA's more enjoyable rivalries of the mid-90s. On one side, there were upstarts Shaquille O'Neal and Penny Hardaway. The reformed and reloaded dynasty lead by Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen on the other. Chicago ultimately got the best of their young challengers by sweeping them in 1996, but the Magic were responsible for the only blemish on the championship era Bulls' playoff record a season earlier.
This summer, Nike is celebrating the old rivalry by introducing two of the stars' sneakers in a pack reminiscent of the teams' stylish uniforms. The "Pinstripe Pack" includes Hardaway's Nike Air Max Penny 1 and Pippen's Air More Uptempo, each featuring pinstripe detailing throughout the upper. Predominantly styled in royal blue, the Penny 1's stripes read '1CENT,' while 'AIR' is spelled out on the stripes of the Bulls-themed Air More Uptempo.
