An electrifying basketball superstar who transformed the pathetic Chicago Bulls into 6-time world champions. ESPN voted him the number one athlete of the century. Every game Jordan would do something spectacular and for 13 seasons he captivated crowds with gravity defying dunks, inspired defence, and dramatic game-winning shots. Every season Jordan improved his game and remained a step ahead of his many foes.
Dude, last night John Starks talked some smack and Michael Jordan lit him up for 55 points.
