The story of Michael Jordan is well known throughout the sporting world. He went from being cut from his high school basketball team in his sophomore year to North Carolina University where he won a National Championship in 1982 hitting the game-winning shot against Patrick Ewing and Georgetown University.
He was drafted by the Chicago Bulls third overall in the 1984 NBA Draft. Jordan went on to win the NBA regular season MVP five times, six NBA champions, and six NBA Finals MVPs.
He finished his career as, in most people’s opinion, the greatest player of all time. Maybe the greatest athlete of all time.
The face of Nike apparel, Jordan and his Air Jordan brand are as famous today as they were when he was still playing.
Jordan is currently the principal owner of the Charlotte Hornets.
