Can we just skip 2020 and fast-forward to when life goes back to normal? I’m saying! All humor aside, a silver lining that we have gotten in 2020 are the releases that Jordan Brand has been dishing out. We’re a little bit more than one-third of the way done with 2020, and we’ve already gotten rereleases of classics such as the Air Jordan 6 DMP, Air Jordan 4 Black Cat and Air Jordan 5 Fire Red, while also getting brand new flavors of your favorite retros that include the Off-White x Air Jordan 5, the highly coveted Air Jordan 1 ‘85 Varsity Red, and the slept-on Air Jordan 3 Red Cement.

With a little bit less than two-thirds of the year remaining, what Jordan Brand releases are there to look forward to? Although tough to narrow down, we’ve compiled a list of what we feel are 5 of the best upcoming Jordan drops of 2020. Needless to say, sports would never be the same without Air Jordan. What upcoming Jordan Brand release are you most excited about?

Air Jordan 13 Flint

After years or rumors and speculation, Jordan Brand will finally be bringing back the Air Jordan 13 Flint. Considered one of the best OG colorways of the model, the Air Jordan 13 Flint returns for the first time since 2010 and it does so in true OG form as it mimics the look of the OG pair from 1998. Just like the recently released Air Jordan 5 Fire Red, this is a must-have in everyone’s collection. Look for these to drop on May 30th.

Air Jordan 1 High OG WMNS Satin Snake

I know everyone is waiting for the Air Jordan 1 High OG Chicago to rerelease, and although this is not it, this upcoming Air Jordan 1 High is definitely one that should not be overlooked. Initially believed to be an altered Air Jordan 1 in a Chicago color scheme, leaked images show that this women’s-exclusive colorway of the model is simply a premium variation of the iconic model.

No, it’s not done in exact Chicago color blocking, but it definitely is reflective of the Chicago 1s. That said, the satin and snakeskin textured material for its overall construction will definitely make this a release you should not be sleeping on. Said to be releasing in August, take notice the increase in interest this release will be getting the closer we get to the drop.

Air Jordan 5 Oregon Ducks

No, this won’t be the PE version, but it will be similar to the player exclusive version that was initially released in 2013 without its official school logos. No images of the shoe have been released, but if it looks anything like the PE that resells for thousands of dollars, this will definitely be one of the coolest new Air Jordan 5 colorways that we’ve seen in quite some time. Look for these to drop sometime in August.

Air Jordan 4 OG Fire Red 2020

Arguably one of the best OG colorways of the Air Jordan 4, the Air Jordan 4 Fire Red is slated to get the retro treatment in OG fashion during Black Friday 2020. This means Nike Air on the heels, which would mark the first time the shoe would come with OG branding since the OG dropped back in 1989. I mean, this is definitely a must-cop, right? Maybe even a double-up?

J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 High OG

After a first look during Super Bowl 54 this past February, it was recently announced that the J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 is slated to debut in November sometime during the holiday season. If the shoe does end up releasing, it would mark the first time that a Latino artist collaborates with Jordan Brand. That’s history in the making. A wild-looking Air Jordan 1 to say the least, this J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 High OG will without a doubt be a highly coveted piece of footwear.

Aaron Rodgers Signs $150m Contract as Green Bay Packers Retain Star Quarterback

If you are a Green Bay Packers fan, then the news that Aaron Rodgers has pledged himself to the Lambeau Field franchise for another three years will be music to your ears. The veteran quarterback has completed back-to-back NFL MVP award-winning seasons, and many may have feared that another offseason filled with ‘will-he, won’t he’ rumors were on the cards, but that’s now been neatly avoided.

38-year-old Rodgers has put pen to paper on a deal that will net him a massive $150m and makes him the best-paid player in the league. His first year will amount to $41m, the second is worth $59, and his third will work out at $49m. That may seem like a hefty sum, but Rodgers reportedly actually turned down a higher amount, knowing that doing so would free up money to improve the deals of other players (and possible newcomers to the Packers ranks).

The retention of Rodgers will, of course, offer a massive boost to Matt LaFleur’s team’s push for a Super Bowl title, and if you take a look at any odds comparison site, you’ll see that Green Bay are now at around the (+1100) mark, meaning that only the Buffalo Bills, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are ahead of them in the betting.

Rodgers has been in superb form over the past few seasons, showing that age hasn’t caught up with him, and there is certainly plenty more left in the tank. Next season will be his 18th with the Packers, and he has led his team to the playoffs in each of the past three campaigns. 

During that period, the Packers have a 39-6 record in regular-season action, which is a frightening level of consistency, and keeping such a hugely talented player at the team is something that has been widely applauded.

Green Bay general manager Brian Gutekunst remarked;

“We are very pleased to be able to come to an agreement with Aaron that keeps him in Green Bay,”

“His play on the field and leadership in our locker room remain vital in our pursuit of another Super Bowl title. The agreement also allows us to maintain and enhance what we feel is already a very competitive roster.”

The new deal for Rodgers has left back-up QB Jordan Love considering his options, and one imagines he may look to leave Green Bay in order to find game time elsewhere. 

On that point, comments from LaFleur suggest that they may not stand in his way, should he indeed look to find a new team;

“Jordan’s come a long way,” 

“I still think, with any young player that hasn’t gotten maybe the experience up to this point, there’s still a lot of room for growth. So I think it’s going to be an important offseason, that when he does come back, it’s making sure that his footwork is sharp, that he’s on the details of what we’re trying to accomplish on each and every play and all the concepts, really a mastery of the offense, and just the command that he has. I know he takes that to heart, and he takes it very personally, and he’ll do whatever he can to be his best.”

One thing is for sure. Trying to force your way from behind the shadow of such an accomplished player, such as Aaron Rodgers, isn’t something that can be easily achieved. Hence the likely need to move on rather than sit on the sidelines for another three years.
