With the 35th anniversary of Black History Month coming to an official close on Monday, Nike, Jordan Brand and Converse are taking the opportunity to recognize the basketball pioneers that they have been honoring all month with the launch of a three-part video series titled, “Ever Higher.” In the series, they discuss the greatness of their three pioneers — Julius Erving, Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant — with a handful of sports and cultural influencers including Bun B, Mick Boogie, Julius Erving III, Freddie Gibbs… and Dime’s own Aron Phillips.
