The story of His Airness is well-known, as he went from being "cut" from his varsity high school basketball team as a sophomore to becoming arguably the greatest player in the history of basketball.

MJ won a national championship and was named National College Player of the Year at North Carolina before getting selected No. 3 overall in the 1984 NBA draft by the Chicago Bulls.

Jordan was a 14-time All-Star, 10-time scoring champion, five-time regular-season MVP, six-time NBA champion and six-time NBA Finals MVP.

He is currently the principal owner of the Charlotte Hornets, and he is a successful entrepreneur as the face of the Air Jordan shoe and apparel line.
