JORDAN’S ‘FLU GAME’ SHOES SELL FOR $104,765 AT AUCTION
Being a ball boy pays, it seems. After Michael Jordan’s infamous 1997 Flu Game, where he scored 38 points while allegedly suffering from a severe case of food poisoning, he autographed his game-worn shoes and gave them to Utah Jazz ball boy Preston Truman.
Truman put the shoes up for auction and, according to ESPN, sold for $104,765 on Thursday, “shattering the record price paid for a pair of game-worn shoes in any sport.” 
He auctioned the shoes, he said, because “I just didn’t see the point to having something so cool and a part of NBA history sitting at my bank anymore.” Replacing them in the bank with $100K seems like a good reason, too, though.

"Isiah was the general (of the Pistons)," Pippen said. "He was the guy who would yap at his teammates and say ‘Kick them on their ass. Do whatever you have to do.’ No, I didn’t want him on the Dream Team. … I despised how he played the game."
