Despite being retired for many years, Michael Jordan is still widely seen as the biggest basketball player ever to play the game. His influence was not only played in the game, but also in the world. Finally, the excellence of sport played a role in promoting the basketball and national basketball associations in the eighties and nineties. In addition, Jordan was also a marketing force and was the most successful athlete on the market for his generation, and perhaps all the time. In 1999, Jordan named ESPN as "the 20th century's greatest athlete".
Jordan came out of the NBA after 15 years and created a number of prestigious records. At 30.12 points, the game is on average the highest in NBA history. He also won six NBA titles at the Chicago Bulls and the NBA Finals at MVP every time he claimed the championship. In addition, Jordan was the NBA's 10 best leap in action, a five-time champion's most valuable player. All-NBA's first team was selected 10 times, All-Defensive First team led nine times with NBA leadership in three years. The Associated Press was second only to Babe Ruth as the best athlete of the century.
On the basketball court Jordan's magic became apparent for the first time in 1985 when he joined the NBA court again. He introduced the whole package – a dazzling funnel, a wild defensive and a wonderful ability to get whatever he wanted. Sliding capability lowered the charts and quickly gained color nicknames like "Air Jordan" and "Airness". In a 1986 playoff against Boston Celtics, Jordan scored 63 points, which led the League to announce that the ruling MVP Larry Bird would announce that he was "Michael Jordan disguised."
Media has portrayed a number of players as "the next Michael Jordan" after joining the NBA, including renamed holes like Grant Hill, Kobe Bryant, Tracy McGrady and Vince Carter. The latest in getting the drummer, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, but they have to go a long way before they can get the right to call the next Jordan.
