Count the rings Bitch... 1 2 3 4 5th and 6! Jordan leads the way for the 2009 HOF Noms that include the likes of David Robinson and John Stockton.
Let us reflect for a moment...
Jordan graduated North Carolina Class of 1984. Drafted by the Chicago Bulls 3rd overall.* Won 6 Championships (all with the bulls) in 91' 92' 93' 96' 97' 98'. Proud owner of five different jersey #'s that include 5, 9, 12, 45 and the infamous #23. He's a 5x MVP, 14x All-Star, 6x Finals MVP, Defensive player of the year 1988, 1985 Rookie of the Year, 3x All-Star MVP, 2x Slam Dunk Champ and of course played for the Original Olympic Dream Team. Did I mention that he scored over 32,000 points in his career as well? Let us not forget the 1994 stint in the Chicago White Sox minor league system that showed us just how much we missed him in a basketball jersey.
With numerous other memorable Michael Jordan moments (I always appreciate the one when my parents decided to name me after such a brilliant athlete) it should be an honor just to watch him be inaugurated into the HOF this year. So lets all give him a hand of applause. clap clap clap clap clap clap clap
