JORDAN'S NEW NUMBER AND WHITE SNEAKERS CAUSE CONTROVERSY
Published May 11, 1995
The Bulls could be fined for not notifying the NBA of Michael Jordan's uniform switch to number 23 before last night's game against Orlando. In addition, Jordan could also be fined for wearing white Nike Air Jordan shoes and not the black ones worn by his teammates. NBA rules say teammates must wear the same colored shoes. Magic GM Pat Williams: "Shaq can't just come out wearing No. 40. It's prohibited." Shaquille O'Neal had asked the league three weeks ago to change his number from 32 to 40, his college number, but the league declined (USA TODAY, 5/11).
