2: Michael Jordan was born on February 17, 1963, in Brooklyn, New York. He has two sisters named Deloris and Roslyn, and two brothers, Larry and James. Growing up he had a love for the game of basketball, but was cut from his high school basketball team. He continued to practice daily.
3: He was accepted not only to attend The University of North Carolina, but also to play the position of shooting guard on their basketball team for three years. He was drafted in the first round, third overall to the Bulls in the 1984 NBA draft. Michael also has a wife named Juanita, two sons Jeffrey and James, and a daughter named Jasmine.
4: Michael Jordan retired from the NBA in 2003. One of the most important days of his life was when he got inducted into the NBA Hall Of Fame. | Some of the awards he won were 6-time NBA champion, 5-time NBA MVP, 14-time NBA All-Star, 6-time NBA finals MVP, | Rookie of the Year, 3-time All-Star MVP, and more. Today, Michael is the President of the Charlotte Bobcats.

6: Michael Jordan was an inspiring person. I admire him because he wouldn't get mad at his teammates, instead he encouraged them. He wasn't the type to brag either because usually basketball players always brag. I think its funny how he always sticks his tongue out.
