It made sense when the Houston Rockets drafted Hakeem Olajuwon with the first overall pick in the 1984 NBA Draft because they wanted him to join Ralph Simpson to form the “Twin Towers.” It was logical when the Portland Trail Blazers selected Sam Bowie next because they already had a future Hall of Fame shooting guard in Clyde Drexler. Nonetheless, those teams not taking Michael Jordan, who went third to the Bulls, could be construed as the two worst draft picks in NBA history. Jordan had an incredible rookie season, averaging 28.2 points, 6.5 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 2.4 steals per game on his way to Rookie of the Year honors. He was selected to the All-Star Game, an honor he would earn every year he was eligible in the NBA. This rookie jersey is attached to a black suede matte and then finished with a sturdy black frame so it’s ready to be the centerpiece of any wall. Jordan has autographed this framed 1984-85 Chicago Bulls red rookie authentic Mitchell & Ness jersey in black paint pen. The frame gives it an approximate overall size of 32” x 38”. His signature is deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated’s Five-Step Process.
