The Extraordinary Journey of Michael Jordan

Michael Jeffrey Jordan is a retired American professional basketball player and active
businessman. Jordan, born February 17, 1963, is listed as the best basketball player of all time on
the NBA’s official website. They have 3 children named Michael, Marcus and Jasmine. His career
started in 1984. He entered the NBA draft and was selected by the Chicago Bulls. Jordan quit
basketball in 1993. The reason he quit was because his father was killed in an armed robbery.

Soon, the spotlight showed Jordan again. But this time on a baseball field. He stepped into
baseball, one of his biggest dreams since childhood, with the jersey of the Birmingham Barons
team. He was bad at baseball. Jordan, who spent one season, then returned towards the end of
the 1994-1995 season, thinking that the time he spent without playing basketball was enough to
clear his mind. He won many awards with the impact of his return. His awards include: 6-time
NBA Championship, 6-time NBA Finals. MVP, 5-time NBA Season MVP, 14-time NBA All-Star, 3-
time NBA All-Star Game MVP award, 10-time NBA Best Five of the Year, 1-time NBA Second
Team of the Year, 1-time NBA Defense of the Year Player, 9-time NBA All-Defensive Team, NBA
Rookie of the Year, NBA All-Rookie Team, 10-time NBA Scoring Leader, 2-time All-Star Slam Dunk

Of course, he did not win all of these awards alone. Jordan played with many good basketball
players throughout his career. To give an example: Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, Magic
Johnson, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing.He only wore four numbers
throughout his entire career. These are 23, 45, 9 and 12. Jordan played guard positions and was a
shooter. His leaping ability, especially dunking into the basket from the foul line during the dunk
contest at the All Star show, gave Jordan the nicknames “Air Jordan” and “His Airness”. Nike has
been producing shoe models called Air Jordan since 1985. Jordan, who earns a lot of money
thanks to these models, earns more money every year. Jordan’s total wealth is 3 billion US dollars.
