In 2006, Jordan Brand first introduced the Defining Moments Pack, or better know as “DMP”, which included a white/gold/black Air Jordan 11 (basically a Concord 11 with gold hits) and a mostly black/gold Air Jordan 6. The limited pack is one of the more coveted Jordan Brand packs to date, which is no surprise since the pack contains two of the more popular and iconic silhouettes Jordan Brand has to offer from a retro standpoint.
Fast forward to 2017, and it appears Jordan Brand is going back to the well so to speak with the Defining Moments theme and bringing it back for the Air Jordan 13 and Air Jordan 14. The mostly white and gold colorway will be put on the Air Jordan 13 this time around (zsneakerheadz states the heel hologram is “different”), with the Air Jordan 14 being the silhouette that will sport the black and gold colorway. Like the 2006 pack, the 2017 DMP will come in a special box. This time around, the special box will show the stats for all 6 NBA finals games from 1998 in which Michael Jordan wore both the Air Jordan 13 and Air Jordan 14. The exterior of the box also shows the play Phil Jackson drew up for Jordan that setup the “Last Shot”.
The only confusing part to me as a hardcore Jordan fan is the fact that the Bulls didn’t take a timeout before the “Last Shot” sequence so was this the play when Jordan took it to the rack for a layup over Antoine Carr before stealing the ball from Karl Malone which lead to the eventual “Last Shot” over Bryon Russell? I mean the layup and “Last Shot” were both essentially isolation plays, so it could very well be that the same play was run twice, who knows!
Anyway, the original pack retailed at $295, but like most JB packs these days, expect the 2017 13/14 DMP to run for $500. There is no official release date yet, but the pack is rumored to release sometime this summer.
