When you’re Michael Jordan, you’re entitled to a few things. I mean, sure, you’re more recognizable as a crying meme these days rather than being the greatest basketball player of all-time, but you still have enough clout at Nike to get a few things done, like say a complete collection of Air Jordans in the colors of the team that you own.

Last night, SoleFly owner (and MJ’s brother-in-law) Carlos Prieto showed off a little bit of those MJ perks when he posted a picture from inside the Time Warner Arena of a wall filled with classic Js in the Charlotte Hornets color scheme of white, purple and teal. The display is similar to what we’ve seen at the newer Nike flagship stores in Chicago or Las Vegas.

Featured in the picture are the Air Jordan 2, Air Jordan 3, Air Jordan 4, Air Jordan 5 (no, those aren’t Grapes), Air Jordan 6, Air Jordan 7, Air Jordan 10, Air Jordan 11 and Air Jordan 13. Now if we were to rank them in order of awesomeness it would go something like this…

  1. Air Jordan 3
  2. Air Jordan 11
  3. Air Jordan 10
  4. Air Jordan 6
  5. Air Jordan 4
  6. Air Jordan 5
  7. Air Jordan 7
  8. Air Jordan 2

And the 13s don’t count because they will always, always suck.
