Michael Jordan x GQ Magazine 25 Coolest Athletes of All Time Cover


Michael Jordan covers GQ Magazine‘s February 2011 issue as one of its 25 Coolest Athletes of All Time. Other names on the list include “Broadway” Joe Namath, Muhammad Ali and, of course, Walt “Clyde” Frazier.

For Air Jordan’s entry, writer Bethlehem Shoals of FreeDarko takes the greatest basketball player of all time to task for miscues (overall assholeness) that have tarnished his reputation as of late. Shoals does point out that when #23 entered the NBA and was without his epic reputation, good and bad, he truly was a game changer, literally and figuratively.

Yep, on the cover his Airness is rocking the Air Jordan 7 in its OG White/Light Silver-True Red colorway—aka “Hare Jordans” thanks to Nike’s marketing campaign that incorporated Bugs Bunny—which places the cover photo around 1992. See the commercial for the Air Jordan 7 below where Jordan is rocking the Bordeaux colorway, which happens to finally be getting the retro treatment. That’s all folks.

VIDEO: Malice (The Clipse) “Vignettes 1, 2, 3 & 4”

Above, Malice gets his Tony Hawk on in Vignette #4 of his ongoing series. Below, in Vignette #3 aka “Am I My Brother’s Keeper,” he emphatically kicks, “Just remember we Batman, we ain’t nobody’s Robin,” towardes who we can safely assume is Pusha T. Before you conspiracy theorists start crying foul, Big Bro also raps, “All I do is applaud him, all I have for him is love/I’d be the mascot if ever push came to shove.”

Malice’s book, Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind and Naked drops Valentine’s Day. Pre-order it here. Should be a powerful read. Vignettes #1 & #2 after the break. [Checked at Play Cloths Blog]
