After the Air Jordan 11, now the Air Jordan 13 is also receiving the “Cap And Gown” treatment to join this month’s Air Jordan releases 2019. Just a year prior to his scheduled graduation from the University of North Carolina, Michael Jordan entered the 1984 NBA draft and was selected by the Chicago Bulls. Thus, Michael Jordan departed to pursue a professional basketball career and did not manage to graduate at the time. IN 1986 though, Michael Jordan resumed his studies and successfully earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in geography. Jordan Brand’s “Cap And Gown” colorways are based on the theme of graduation.
Back in January, John Calipari made a claim that suggested that college basketball graduation rates are at their peak this year. This is mostly false because student athletes have actually been graduating at relatively lower rates since 2011. Of course, the graduation rates of athletes are not a mark of academic achievement that should be overemphasized. Moreover, that does not mean that there are no NBA players who have graduated from college. For instance, players like Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul both happen to be college graduates. Apparently, even Jordan Brand is making this point more obvious because it seems that they are currently working on a “Graduation” Pack.

Packs containing multiple sneakers have become rather common in the world of sneakers. Merely in 2014, four such packs containing both Jordan Brand and Nike sneakers had hit the shelves, including the Ultimate Gift of Flight Pack that had a whopping retail value of $500.

Near the beginning of this month, the North Carolina Tar Heels were victorious in the final game of this year’s NCAA March Madness tournament and they brought home a sixth NCAA title. Last year, the Tar Heels were defeated in the NCAA March Madness final when Kris Jenkins of the Villanova Wildcats hit a 3-pointer just as the buzzer went off. The team’s loss was quite a devastating shock for coach Roy Williams, but both him and the Tar Heels have made quite a comeback.
