The infamous "God disguised as Michael Jordan" performance is one of the games that inspired the latest release in Jordan's collection of shoes. The Air Jordan 60+ Collection gives a nod to each of the Hall of Famer's 60-point scoring binges. This particular pair casts the Air Jordan 5 in the Celtics Green/White/Black colorway.

Moreover, this is an excuse to post video of that freakish performance in Game 2 of that first round 1986 Playoffs series. Also, when Jordan was inducted into the Hall of Fame last month, Celtics general manager Danny Ainge told this to the Herald:

"I actually played golf with him the day before that game. I think we played at Framingham Country Club. And I beat him so when he was scoring all those points late in the game, I wondered if he was taking it out on me."
