June 11, 1997, were your eyes glued to the TV like mines? That night was one of the greatest moments in sports history as the greatest ever to play the game of basketball, Michael Jordan, fought a 103 fever to beat the Utah Jazz in a Game 5 finals appearance. 38 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and a game winner 3 pointer, all in 44 minutes and you complain about waking up on Mondays?

Yahoo! has reported that after getting the shoes signed by the legend himself, Michael Russek who was a ball boy during the game, told Ball Don’t Lie that keeping the shoes under lock wasn’t of interest to him anymore.

“We were approached by the ball boy because of our affiliation with the Basketball Hall of Fame,”Russek told BDL. “He never looked to sell them before now. I think he recently realized that he was getting a little older and was more curious than anything to see if people still cared about the story.”

“He wants someone else to have them who can display them better, as they’ve sat in a safety deposit box for the last 15-plus years,” Russek said. “Mainly, he wants Jordan fans to hear the story and know they are out there and how they were obtained.”

The shoes will be on auction Dec. 11 and bidding opens Nov. 11. Bulls and Jordan fans alike might be cashing in those 401k’s soon.

If you get the shoes or not, the game is a memory that all sports fans will never forget.
