When we talk about basketball we can not avoid naming the famous Jordan, his great feats and plays led him to be the best player in history. From his beginnings he grew up as an athlete, played basketball, baseball and soccer; he was not born excelling in basketball, when he was in high school he was expelled from the team for not giving enough, he did not give up and for the following season he developed a greater ability to play with which he achieved a scholarship in college to play with the Tar Heels at the University of North Carolina.
Micheal appeared in 1984 in the NBA draft to be selected by the Chicago Bulls, from the beginning showed great defensive and offensive power that led him to be a favorite player, averaging 28.2 points per game, that same year was swept by Milwaukee Bucks. In the second season, Jordan was stopped by an injury that did not allow him to play until the last game against the Boston Celtics in which he played Larry Bird, for this juice the words of Larry for Jordan were: "I have seen God disguised as a player. "He also reached the record for the most points scored.
After being swept for 3 consecutive seasons in elimination games, the Bulls got their pass to the semifinals after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers, but the excitement was short because Detroit and their Bad Boys would delay them. In 1989, Scottie Pippen and Horace Grant would arrive to form a super team directed by Jordan, but nevertheless the Detroit Pistons stopped it again for the third consecutive time. At that time it was thought if the Bulls would be able to cross this great Goliath led by Isiah Thomas.
That same year, Jordan would be thinking about what he should do next season for which he would be preparing. In 1990, Jordan would be more motivated than ever, Scottie Pippen had a great season making the Bulls raise their level of play, at that time the Bulls would be at their best. The Detroit Pistons would be waiting for them again, but after big plays and good communication they could defeat Detroit and go to the final against the Magic Johnson in which they would be champions, breaking the record for most victories. They dominated the season against the Portland Trail Blazers 91-92 and again broke the record for most wins, at 93 they would be crowned for the third consecutive time against the Phoenix Suns.
After the laps of fate on July 23, 1993, Jorda's father was murdered, and later on October 6, 1993, he announced his first retreat, many fans did not wait for him, it was at that moment that he wondered if it was the end of the golden age, of that phenomenon that did not play but flew. In March of 1994, Jordan arrives at the White Sox baseball team in Chicago to fulfill a promise.
On March 19, 1995, Micheal returns to the NBA field without his number 23, as he had been retired in honor of his great game; After good plays, Jordan takes the Bulls to the semifinals where they will face Orlando Magic to be eliminated. In season 95-96 with a new motivation, Jordan again uses his 23 and is sanctioned for not warning the NBA. The Bulls are reinforced by Dennis Rodman, Jordan shows those who said he was not the same and did not do well, once again crowned champion, against Seattle SuperSonics.
Season 96-97 The Bulls won more than 70 victories to reach the final against Utah Jazz, the duel between the duo Karl Malone-John Stockton and the Bulls was surprising, many surprising moves would remain for the story. In the 97-98 season, Utah would seek a rematch and again on the court in the final, in its third game Utah will be defeated 96 to 54, in its sixth game the Bulls would be losing, after a magic basket Jordan crowns Chicago for last time, closing with a flourish.
When everyone thought that everything was over, Jordan returns on January 20, 2000 to Washington Wizards as president, a year later he returns to the field to play with the Wizards with an average of 20.0 points per game; with the age of 40 years and an incredible physique. Then, on April 16, 2003 in his last game after playing very little, he enters the court at the request of the public, to retire for the last time in the NBA.
