Forever frozen. There's Michael in our minds, shooting the jumper over Bryon Russell, swinging his gleeful arm over Craig Ehlo, soaring in the dunk contest, images suited solely for an imagination. But even the greats gray. Now, we wouldn't know that with Michael Jordan, because he shaved his head before it was cool — he made it cool — and it's shaved to this day. But still, this day, M.J. turned 50. Yep. It's kind of hard to believe.
