Michael Jordan

1963-

American Athlete

Widely regarded as the greatest basketball player in history, Michael Jordan was a consistent top scorer and league MVP during his career with the Chicago Bulls.

He led his team to an unprecedented six NBA championships and was also a member of two gold medal-winning US Olympic basketball teams. Jordan was also a successful college athlete prior to turning professional.

He retired from basketball in l993 to pursue a career in professional baseball. Though he made a credible effort, his relative lack of success in baseball propelled him back to basketball to lead the Bulls to three more championships before retiring in 1998 for a career in commercial endorsements and other business endeavors.
