1963 – Happy 50th birthday to Chicago Bulls Hall of Fame shooting guard and Charlotte Bobcats majority owner Michael Jordan, who played 15 seasons in the NBA. I am not sure you have heard about this story, which has been endlessly covered for the last week, but Jordan was born in Brooklyn, New York and became arguably the best basketball player in history. He has the highest player efficiency rating and points per game average all-time. Jordan was also a 14-time All-Star, six-time champion and six-time Finals MVP.
