Michael Jordan was born in 1963 February 17th Brooklyn, New York. Now he is 53 years old. At the beginning no college teams wanted him, he had no talent in the coaches opinion. MJ wanted give up. He worked all day and night to become a good basketball player. In 1981 he started to play at a college team in North Carolina. He played at SG position (Shooting Guard).
The last game in North Carolina was in 1984. In 1984 North Carolina's coach said that MJ was to good for collage basketball. He tried to become a pro.
MJ was drafted in 3rd pick in 1 round. The Chicago bulls selected him. He also played at Washington Wizards from 2001-2003 it was at the end of his basketball career. Of course the best career was at the Chicago bulls.
Jordan was also known by name Air Jordan and His Airness. He got those names because of his athleticism. Jordan were really athletic. He jumped from free throw line and dunked. MJ was just 1.98 cm. It's really amazing that he could dunk from free throw line.
He have sneakers "Air Jordan". It's really known sneakers in the basketball world, but not just in the basketball world. MJ won many basketball prices like: MVP, All-NBA, All-Defensive, All-Star game, scoring at steals tittles.
In 1996 Michael played in a film for children's named Space Jam. Good film in my opinion. Jordan is a billionaire and the second richest African-American. He is the owner of Charlotte Hornets. MJ is a legend of basketball. Michael is a role model for me because didn't give up when the coaches said they didn't wanted him. He just worked hard.
