Michael Jordan Olympic jersey up for auction
One of Michael Jordan‘s jerseys from the 1984 Olympics is hitting the auction block.
The U.S. men’s basketball team wore red against West Germany in the 1984 Olympic quarterfinals and, judging by this image, also against China in group play.
The Americans went 8-0 in Los Angeles, winning every game by double digits.
Jordan led the way with 17.1 points per game following his junior season at North Carolina and before his rookie year with the Chicago Bulls.
The U.S. Olympic team in 1984 also included Patrick Ewing and Chris Mullin, who would join Jordan on the Dream Team in 1992 to win a second Olympic gold. The 1984 team was coached by Bobby Knight.
