Michael Jordan Michael Jordan is an American Professional Basketball Player. I picked Michael for my biography because I consider him to bethe best basketball player in the NBA. Michael is recognized for his spectacular ball handling skills and for his outrageous dunks. He is also the leading scorer in the NBA, and a winner of three NBA most valuable player award in 1988, 1991, and 1992. Jordan was born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Wilmington, North Carolina. He accepted a basketball scholarship at the University of North Carolina and as a freshman he scored the winning shot in the 1982 NCAA championship game.

In 1984 Jordan led the U. S. basketball team to victory in the Olympics. After that he left college to play for the Chicago Bulls. Jordan was successful as a professional from his first season, Leading the NBA in the 1984-85 season in points scored. Heal so was named rookie of the year and started in the All Star game.

In the 1986-87 season Jordan became the second player ever to score 3000 points in one season. In the following six seasons he led the NBA in scoring averaging more than 30 points per game. Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to their first NBA championship tittle in 1991, and did it again in 1992 and in 1993. Jordan retired from basketball in 1994 to play baseball. He only played for about one year but he didn't have what it took to be a base ballplayer. He came back to play basketball in the middle of the 1995 season to lead the Bulls into the first round of the playoffs where they where beat.

Jordan was the NBA's most valuable player for the 1987-88 season and again for the 1990-91 and the 1991-92 season. This is the first time a NBA player won for two consecutive seasons. He was also a member of the Dream Team that won the gold metal in basketball at the 1992 Summer Olympics. Many people consider Michael to be the best basketball player in the world. I consider him to be the best on earth.

Also one of the most world renown players ever to be recognized all over the world. Jordan has signed many profitable contracts to endorse commercial products such as Nike, Pepsi, Gatorade, and many more.
