When Michael Jordan came out of retirement in 1995, he famously donned No. 45 rather than his trademark 23. But do you know about the time Air Jordan wore the No. 12? On Valentine's day in 1990, Michael Jordan’s jersey was stolen in Orlando prior to tipoff vs the Magic.
The Bulls did not bring a backup No. 23 jersey with them so Jordan was forced to wear a nameless number 12 jersey. The initial reports stated that someone snuck into the Chicago locker room and stole MJ’s No. 23.
That season, MJ led the league in scoring at 33.6 points per game while playing all 82 regular-season games and had no mercy for the young Magic team. He went on to score 49 points that game shooting 21 out of 43 from the field. You can take the GOATs jersey but you can’t take his game away!
