Michael Jordan - Widely known as the one of the greatest professional basketball players ever, active entrepreneur, spokesman for Nike, Hanes and other brands, and majority owner of the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats. Won 6 NBA Championships and 5 NBA MVP Awards.
A Michael Jordan Tribute. Jordan played basketball for Laney High School in Wilmington, North Carolina. Ironically, Jordan was cut from the varsity team as a sophomore. Instead of giving up after failing to make the team, Jordan used it to spur himself to greater achievements, practicing hour after hour on the court.
