Michael Jordan biography (bio):
Michael Jordan is a retired American professional basketball player. Widely considered to be one of the greatest basketball players of all time, he became the most effectively marketed athlete of his generation and was instrumental in spreading the appeal of the NBA (National Basketball Association) around the world in the 1980s and 1990s. He is currently a part-owner of the Charlotte Bobcats.
A remarkable force at both ends of the floor, "M.J." ended his 15 NBA seasons with a regular-season scoring average of 30.1 points per game, the highest in NBA history. He won six NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls, won 10 scoring titles, and was league MVP five times. He was named to the All-NBA First Team 10 times, All-Defense First Team nine times, and led the league in steals three times.
Since 1983, he has appeared on the front cover of Sports Illustrated a record 49 times, and was named the magazine's "Sportsman of the Year" in 1991. In 1999, he was named "the greatest athlete of the 20th century" by ESPN, and was second to Babe Ruth on the Associated Press list of top athletes of the century. His leaping ability, vividly illustrated by dunking from the foul line and other feats, earned him the nicknames "Air Jordan" and "His Airness."
