Michael Jordan

Michael Jeffrey Jordan (born February 17, 1963), also known by his initials, MJ was an American professional basketball player. At present he’s the owner of a NBA’s team, the Charlotte Bobcats.

He was an idol for many people and he is considered the best basketball player in history. He started playing when he was very young. In  North Carolina University he started his professional career, where he won a national championship in 1982. Later, in 1984, he signed up with Chicago Bulls where he passed the best moments of him career.

In 1994 he left the basketball to try baseball but it didn’t work. So, in 1995 he returned to Chicago, and in 1999 he left again. But in 2001 he decided to return to the NBA, but this time, he signed up for Washington Wizards. And finally, he definitely left basketball in 2003. He makes money selling merchandising.

Now he is 50 years old and he is considered, as I said, the best basketball player in history. There is a lot of awards that corroborate it.

He became the major owner of the Charlotte Bobcats in 2010 and appart from his work with this team, Jordan is involved in a number of business ventures, including several restaurants. He also does a lot for charity, including hosting the annual golf event known as  Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational. He is engaged to model Yvette Priesto.
