Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant was named the 2019-20 Kia NBA Rookie of the Year. To celebrate, the baller laced shared a photo wearing shoes created to honor a past winner: basketball icon Michael Jordan.
Morant, who received 99 first-place votes from a panel of 100 voters, shared a photo on Instagram last night wearing the Air Jordan 1 High “Rookie of the Year.” The look, which debuted in November 2018, is dressed in a golden harvest hue reminiscent of the suede shirt MJ wore to accept the NBA Rookie of the Year award in 1985. Aside from the color palette, the sneaker featured nods to Jordan’s achievement including printing a portion of his acceptance speech and his rookie year stats under the ankle flaps.
Much like other Air Jordan 1 High releases, the “Rookie of the Year” iteration sold out quickly. However, you can still pick up a pair today on the resale market.
