Michael Jordan is the greatest shoe salesman of all time . There has never been an athlete in any sport that could sell their signature brand shoes like Michael Jordan . There have been star players before him and after such as Dr J , Magic , and Bird , converse allstars shoe salesmen Lebron , Wade , Durant , Nike guys and combine they don't come close to MJ's numbers in shoe sales then or now . Mars Blackmon once asked is it the shoes ? Well I guess America can say it loud and clear yes it is the shoes . It's amazing how a guy with very little personality could be such a great shoe salesman and for that matter an underwear salesman . Can anybody tell me why a guy who only won 6 NBA titles compared to 11 by Bill Russell . Who scored 50 points 37 times in his career , compared to Wilt Chamberlain scoring 50 or more points a game 45 times in one year 1962 and was the most accurate shooter ever I won't even get into rebounds , assist , or block shots so it won't offend any Jordan fans . Why is MJ so good at selling shoes ? Prices range from $150 to $300 dollars what is it about the shoe that make people line up in the wee hours of the morning to spend their hard earned money not to mention hurt another human being for them . Is there gold in them ? Somebody please tell me because if you're convincing enough I just might go out and buy a pair .
