Black History Month Appreciation (Day 19): Michael Jordan

It wouldn’t be a proper Black History Month Appreciation series if we didn’t take the time to honor not only the best basketball player to ever touch the hardwood, but one of the best athletes of all time. That’s why for day 19 of our #LiveCivilBHM series, we pay homage to the legend Michael Jordan.

In 1982, MJ started his collegiate career with the North Carolina Tar Heels, where he would go on to become one of the best college players of all time. Averaging 13.4 points a game his Freshman year, Jordan was also responsible for hitting the game-winning shot in the National Championship game, giving the Tar Heels the title. Then in 1983 and 1984, his sophomore and junior years, MJ was named an All-American and won the Naismith and the Wooden College Player of the Year awards in 1984, solidifying his status as one of the best college hoop stars of all time.

Choosing to forego his senior year, MJ was then drafted by the Chicago Bulls at 3rd overall in the 1984 draft. The legacy then began.

6× NBA champion, 6× NBA Finals MVP, 5× NBA Most Valuable Player, 14× NBA All-Star (1985–1993, 1996–1998, 2002–2003), 3× NBA All-Star Game MVP (1988, 1996, 1998), NBA Rookie of the Year (1985), 10× All-NBA First Team (1987–1993, 1996–1998)….and that’s just a handful of MJ’s awards.

His number 23 has been retired by the Bulls and the Tar Heels, and he was inducted into the NBA Hall Of Fame in 2009, going down as the greatest basketball player of all time. He then took ownership of the Charlotte Hornets and will forever be a part of the game he grew to love.

Off the court, MJ made a fortune off of his Air Jordans tennis shoes and has been a staple in our culture forever. Like we said before, it wouldn’t be a proper BHM appreciation series without honoring Michael Jordan. Thank you for all the memories, MJ.

Happy Black History Month!

    Thanks for your concepts. One thing really noticed is the fact banks and also financial institutions know the spending routines of consumers as well as understand that many people max out their cards around the holiday seasons. They wisely take advantage of this real fact and commence flooding the inbox along with snail-mail box having hundreds of no interest APR credit card offers right after the holiday season finishes. Knowing that if you are like 98% of all American public, you’ll rush at the opportunity to consolidate credit card debt and move balances towards 0 rate credit cards.
