Didn't grow up directly in Chicago, but I lived an hour north of Chicago. Chicago has been a big part of my life attending my favorite sport teams like Chicago Cubs, Black Hawks, Chicago Bears, Chicago Bulls...visiting events in Chicago... Even though I never lived there, I still consider it home.

The initial culture reached farther than Chicago. I'm included from the legions that followed from North Carolina! I'm from Cherokee North Carolina. Enrolled. My Uncle was the first Native American professor in Chapel Hill. When he came home, all he talked about was "this kid" that the Heels had was the best thing he'd ever seen! I was 7 years old in 1982. On the rez here, we had 21 channels of TV, one showed all the ACC games. For some weird reason, we also had WGN! Watching straight from Chapel Hill to Chicago!

Great documentary. Love how they focused on how each Jordan or Yeezy shoe has a story. One of the reasons why I got into the Jordans. Each shoe has a unique story. Lovin' the 312's. First time I've actually seen them. Also love how they emphasis that in Chicago we work together for a common cause, not against each other and try to cut each other's head's off. Chicago stand up!!!

These are fucking shoes for christ sake. No one cares what shoes your gonna put your smelly ass feet inside. Itll get dirty eventually. What are you gonna do with them if you dont wear them? put them in a fucking case to stare at them your whole fucking life? The fascination with fucking shoes is unbelievable

Michael Jordan is from Wilmington, North Carolina... not Chicago. His whole family was born around Wilmington, North Carolina. His mom was born in Rocky Point which is considered apart of Wilmington. Everybody just says Wilmington not Rocky Point. His dad was born in Wallace, North Carolina which is an hour and a half away from Wilmington. I was born and raised here in Wilmington, North Carolina. Michael Jordan’s not even a Chicago fan for anything. So take pride in your teams not our brother from Wilmington. Michael Jordan is not apart of Chicago so chill out.

I didn’t know MJ was your brother. You sound like a bigger leech than the people you’re trying to put down. Michael Jordan clearly has embraced the city of Chicago just as much as North Carolina. Jordan currently lives in Florida most of the time anyway. MJ has multiple businesses in the city of Chicago as well, as it is one of the main metropolitan hubs in the United States. There’s is way more money in Chicago than there is in North Carolina so why wouldn’t he embrace a city that has embraced him for the last 30 odd years.
