When the Air Jordan 1 arrived in '85, it was with rule-breaking bravado.
The banned black-red colorway violated the league's uniform policy and
resulted in a $5,000 fine from the NBA each time Michael Jordan wore the
sneakers. Thus the legacy began. Jordan's rookie campaign in 1984-85
finished with His Airness averaging 28.2 points per game to earn
All-Star and Rookie of the Year honors.
