Basketball icon Michael Jeffrey Jordan was born on February 17th, 1963 in Brooklyn, New York – his family moved to Wilmington, North Carolina when he was a toddler. While at the University of North Carolina, he and his fellow Tar Heels won the National Championship in 1982 with Michael sinking the winning jump shot in the final seconds. In 1984 Jordan entered the NBA and joined the Chicago Bulls, giving a much needed shot in the arm to professional sports here in the Windy City, and began making basket ball history. Jordan finished his career with over 32,000 points and 5600 assists. He was on eleven All-Star teams, voted Rookie of the Year, was a five-time League MVP and won six championships earning MVP honors in each one of them.
Novelist-lawyer Scott Turow summed up “His Airness” as follows, “Michael Jordan plays basketball better than anyone else in the world does anything else.”
