Our friends at Jordan Heads: Brooklyn not only have one of the best consignment boutiques in New York, but they also host some of the best private events, too. SLAM Editor-in-Chief Ben Osborne was the special guest for the most recent such event in a series that JHBK calls “Flight School.”

You can watch the video above, as Ben talks about the origins of his own career in the magazine world, SLAM’s unique place in basketball and how the role of sneakers—specifically, Air Jordans—has grown since our mag’s inception.
