Jordan is arguably considered the greatest player in the history of basketball, while now taking part ownership of the Charlotte Hornets and being an entrepreneur as the face of the Jordan brand.
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. He went on to become a 14-time All-Star, 10-time scoring champion, five-time regular-season MVP, six-time NBA champion and six-time NBA Finals MVP.
