Michael Jordan Turns 50
The greatest player in NBA history is turning 50. It seems like time flew by since he retired after hitting that big shot on Bryon Williams and the Utah Jazz. Ironically, I don’t remember the Washington Wizards MJ, I only recall the MJ that made Sportcenter’s Top 10 a nightly highlight reel. That guy, at guard, 6-6, from North Carolina!….
Everyone wanted to be like Mike. Michael Jordan allowed young kids playing basketball to dream about someday playing pro ball and doing the things that he did on the court. Kobe Bryant mastered the MJ turnaround fadeaway jump shot at the highest level because he practiced it. I also did a good job, but I had a little Reggie Miller leg kick in mine. There was only one MJ.
We can all remember a big shot or a famous move that MJ did. Below are my top MJ moments:
