The shoe also features the Nike Air Zoom technology and allows a player to have a light but sturdy shoe to play ball with.

In the 1997-1998 season, the Bulls were looking to three-peat for the NBA Championship. Although three-peats are incredibly hard to do in the NBA, the Bulls were heavy favorites to do so because they had one man that no other team had— Michael Jordan.

During the NBA season, the Bulls once again were on top of the Eastern Conference. They went 62-20, which was still an amazing amount of wins. The Bulls were once again “Red Hot.”

In the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, the Bulls faced the New Jersey Nets. The Bulls managed to sweep the Nets in 3 games to 0. The next test the Bulls faced was against the Charlotte Hornets. The Bulls gave up one game to the Hornets and rolled right past them to reach the Eastern Conference Finals once again.

In the Eastern Conference, the Bulls faced a very good Indiana Pacers team. This was the Bulls toughest challenge and the series was extended to a game 7, which was unusual for the Bulls. The Bulls had not faced elimination in three years and it was going to be a test to see if the Bulls were capable of overcoming adversity. With Michael Jordan in their corner, the Bulls rallied to take Game 7 from the Pacers and were headed to the NBA Finals for a third straight time.

The Bulls faced the Utah Jazz for the second straight year and this time the Jazz wanted to redeem their selves for last year’s defeat. Although the Jazz were a stronger team then they were from the year before, the Bulls defeated the Jazz once again in Game 6. Once again, Jordan was named NBA Finals MVP as well as the NBA Most Valuable Player in the same season
