Michael Jordan's achievements on the basketball court were incredible.
As a freshman, his jump shot gave North Carolina a win over Georgetown in the 1982 National Championship game. Jordan played on two gold medal winning teams in the Olympics. The Chicago Bulls won six Championships in Jordan's final seven seasons with the team.
Michael led the NBA in scoring a record 10 times. He was a five-time MVP and something that often is overlooked: Jordan was named to the NBA's first team all defensive team, nine times.
Jordan has been a very successful businessman, too. In addition to his commercial ventures, he presently is the majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats.
