    Not sure how many of you have been watching "The Last Dance" on ESPN - if you haven't, it's a great documentary on the 1998 Chicago Bulls and their 6th championship run. Toward the beginning of episode 4, there is a short clip of Michael Jordan arriving to practice in January 1998 in his brand-new Rosso Corsa 550. Probably one of the earliest US 550s. I grabbed a couple of screenshots.

    On last nights episode (10) it was showing him In his 1997 Porsche 993 Turbo S with “Air” on the license plates. That’s worth about $500,000 + these days....

    Many new cars come that way now. Looks like he was a trailblazer.

    Grabbed a screenshot of his 993 too. That might be the best personalized plate ever, it works in two ways.
