Scottie Pippen was instrumental in Michael Jordan’s rise to prominence. Without the Hall of Famer and 7-time NBA All-Star, maybe MJ never wins a title, much less six. He definitely doesn’t become the greatest icon ever to play the game. Pippen was just that good. What made this combo so special was that Pip knew exactly what he could and couldn’t do. He was the perfect sidekick.
However, they lost every once in a while, even when they were together. Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny, on the other hand, are still undefeated.
It all started with a commercial on Super Bowl Sunday in 1992. Together, Bugs and Mike took to the courts at a local gym and straight wrecked the competition. From there, the partnership would eventually sprout into a movie. If you come from my generation, Space Jam was one of the definitive flicks of your childhood and while the “Hare” Air Jordan VII was never worn in the movie, it takes its inspiration from the partnership between the two most iconic characters.
The “Hare” VII is finally returning now as the centerpiece of this new collection from Champs Sports in the latest iteration of The Game Plan. Also sporting socks, T-shirts, and numerous hats, all with the patented graphics that help define the history behind the Air Jordan VII, this is a pack that’ll have you looking super fly for the summer.

The “Hare” Jordan VII hasn’t been released in a number of years, which only adds to its status as one of the greatest and most celebrated Jordan sneakers ever made. With fresh designs across the outsole and the tongue, this particular colorway set itself apart from the competition. Cop the slides along with it for a matching look away from the court should you decide to rock these VIIs while playing ball.
T-shirts are an essential of any wardrobe and while style icons like Kanye West might have your closet looking like 50 shades of grey, every once in a while you have to mix it up. Growing up, it was all about copping some Jordans and grabbing the matching T-shirts to go with them. Take it back to the old school with a couple of eye-popping graphics. Whether you grab the white or black tee won’t matter. This’ll add another dimension to your outfit either way.
Thanks to people like Schoolboy Q, bucket hats are on the come up once again. Make it a part of your summer look with this amazing Jordan VII-inspired version. If you don’t think your swag is on that level just yet, stick to the more traditional look and cop a couple of hats.
If you’re still overlooking socks in 2015, you messed up somewhere. Between shorts and cuffed pants, a dope pair of socks is an extra opportunity to style on ‘em. Let these special edition socks add a little extra flavor to your fit. Featuring different colorways on both the left and right feet, these match perfectly with the Jordan VII.
