Michael Jordan BY: Morgan jackson p3

On February 17, 1963 a legend was born weighing just 7 pounds who knew that baby would someday turn into a NBA legend. Basketball was Michael's first love he was intrigued with the game.

Michael enrolled at Emsley A. Laney High School in Wilmington, North Carolina. He tried out for the varsity team his freshman year but was told "He was to small" at 5'9, people on the team would call him "peanut". Over summer he grew to 6'7 and tried out but was soon kicked off. Michael really wanted to make the team so he pushed hard and made varsity his junior year and senior year and got a scholarship to the University of North Carolina.

Michael was drafted 3rd overall in the NBA draft for the Chicago Bulls he was pushing 30 points per game in his career of playing basketball he got 28 triple doubles. After winning 3 NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls he retired because he wanted to spend more time with his family after his father recently died.

Michael couldn't leave the game behind a year later he came back and won 3 more NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls. After that he retired for good.

Throughout Michael's years of playing he has won 6 NBA championships, 6 MVP's, and has played in14 all star games. He scored 32,292 points through out his whole career of playing NBA basketball

Michael was now one of the top NBA players in the history of basketball. Before he retired a few years before that he made a shoe brand called Jordan's so after he retired he focused on making his brand rise to the top that he know makes billions off of.

Michael later after retiring decided to sign a deal with the now called Charlotte Hornets. And he also has his own restaurant called Michael Jordan Steakhouse.

The man that we are all inspired by will never be forgotten as one of the greatest NBA legends in the game of basketball.

"I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed."- Michael Jordan
