Michael Jordan was the greatest basketball player to ever play the game, averaging 30.12 points per game, which is the highest regular-season scoring record. He is 6’6” and 216 pounds. Michael Jordan was born on February 17, 1963, in Brooklyn, New York, and was raised in Wilmington, North Carolina. He was drafted by the Chicago Bulls in 1984 and retired in 1993 to play baseball, but made 11 errors and struck out 114 times. Michael Jordan later came back to basketball in 1995 but retired in 1999. He later returned again for the last time in 2001 and retired in 2003. When he was a senior in high school he was the only player to average a triple-double, 29.2 points, 11.6 rebounds, and 10.1 assists. Michael Jordan could do it all.  He is a 6 time NBA champ and 6 time NBA finals MVP. When Michael Jordan retired, everyone was wondering, “Who will be the next Michael Jordan?”.
