Michael Jeffrey Jordan was born in Brookyln, New York on February 17, 1963. He was the fourth of five children born to James and Deloris. As a youngster, Michael immediately became interested in sports. However, it was baseball not basketball that was his first love. He would play catch in the yard with his father, who loved baseball. He soon started to play basketball to try and follow in the footsteps of his older brother, Larry, whom he idolized growing up.
For me Michael Jordan is the best basketball player in history since he got the highest average as 31.5 points per game. Well, Michael is also to be known as the “love-of-the-game clause” because he’s a real lover of Basketball.
Jordan is also my idol when it comes to shooting since he’s a shooting guard. Michael was a shooting guard who was also capable of playing as a small forward (the position he would primarily play during his second return to professional basketball with the Washington Wizards), and as a point guard. Jordan was known throughout his career for being a strong clutch performer.
Jordan won his second MVP award after averaging 31.5 ppg on 53.9% shooting, 6.0 rpg, and 5.5 apg for the regular season.
In thirteen years with the Chicago Bulls, Michael Jordan led his team to six NBA championships, earning MVP honors each time. Jordan’s career average of 31.5 points per game was the best in NBA history, and his 29,277 total points won him ten season scoring titles and made him the third all-time leading scorer in the league. His last-second shot in Game 6 of the 1998 Finals against the Utah Jazz clinched the Bulls’ sixth title in a decade and marked Jordan’s triumphant exit from the game of basketball.
Jordan is really my inspiration and no one can stop me from playing basketball because Jordan inspired me despite of his struggles in life. But always remember prioritize first education even though there are opportunities waiting for us.
