MJ’s pro career began in the 1984 NBA draft, when the bulls selected him third overall after Sam Bowie and Hakeem Olajuwon. Jordan quickly improved the Bulls franchise by generating more wins and winning rookie of the year. The young rookie also won gold in the 1984 Olympics on the men’s national team. Due to Michael Jordan’s unmatched talent, a great abundance of individuals gained interest in the game of basketball (Legends Profile: Michael Jordan). In 1985, Michael Jordan signed with Nike and created the first of over thirty Air Jordan models, the Air Jordan 1, which would forever alter the sneaker culture (Michael Jordan Timeline).
He has won all NBA, 1st team two times. Some people say James Harden should win MVP because he has the most assists in the league. Russel should win because he has had an outstanding, record breaking season. The MVP award should got to Russell Westbrook this season. Although he has many awards he does not have the MVP award.
One of the Best, by far, Yes! Having won nearly a quarter of all the championships awarded since 1946, is without a doubt a major accomplishment for the Boston Celtics (Boston). Not many teams have had as much success as the Boston Celtics, and that’s why they are one of the more prestigious NBA teams. A total of 17 championship title awards over the decades. Most NBA teams have one if any championship titles, but yet the Celtics have 17 alone that’s amazing.
He had the potential to go number 1 overall to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavaliers took Brad Daughtery from the University of North Carolina. The Boston Celtics who won the championship the year prior, had the 2nd pick. The Celtics took Bias 2nd overall hoping he would be the net great Celtic. The Celtics could 've been the best team ever with Bias in their lineup.
Earning 2 NBA Championship Rings with possibly one of the greatest teams in NBA history ( The Golden State Warriors). He changed the game for others mostly by him being an undersized power forward and he has proven to be one of the best all around players in NBA history. And that is what makes Draymond Green a great hero in basketball history. Lastly with Martin Luther King Jr. he has helped blacks and whites as a race together. He fought for all people and to get equal rights with everyone.
G- Jason Kidd: 2001-2008 From 2001 until his departure in 2008, Jason Kidd was the face of the New Jersey Nets’ franchise. Not only was he the team’s best player but he was also among the best point guards in the entire NBA. During his time in New Jersey, Kidd developed into a much more complete player, emerging as one of the best three-point shooters in the league. Kidd finished in the top five of made three point field goals during his tenure in New Jersey. Night in and night out Kidd was also a threat to record triple-double, leading the NBA in triple-doubles during his tenure with the Nets.
Absolutely.”Lonzo Ball the son of the outspoken father, Lavar Ball, is a Laker rookie from UCLA. LeBron James is a 14 time all star, 4 time MVP, and 3 time champion, currently playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Although some may think that Lebron James is the best basketball player of all time, Lonzo Ball is a better player because he broke Lebron’s record for youngest triple-double in NBA history, he got his signature shoe at an earlier stage in his career, and his rookie year stats are better. LeBron recorded a triple double
He did this all because of his amazing work ethic and love for the game. Kobe will go down as one of the best players in NBA history. Kobe will also be the first player to have 2 jerseys retired by the same team. Kobe also holds the record of most points in a playoff game, scoring 81
Someone who I believe would be a historical hero would be Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan is arguable the best player that ever played in the National Basketball League. Throughout basketball today Michael is continuously brought up and compared to formal players in the NBA right now. Jordan is one of the few players to win six NBA titles and to also have his very own brand of clothing. Players still look up to him due to how successful he was in the NBA, there are references to him daily, whether it is during a television show, or a pickup basketball game at the YMCA.
In order from the best basketball shoe to the okay basketball shoe, in my opinion it would be Nike in 1st, Jordan in 2nd, Adidas in 3rd, and Reebok in 4th. You could make a case for Jordan in 1st as well because overall Nike and Jordan are the best and most widely known shoes worldwide. In the website we will cover the shoe collection for each pair, historical background for each, what each brand represents and it's origin, and pictures of shoe design as
But what makes Jordan superior is not only his on court success but also the success he has had off the court. Jordan has his own shoe brand (Air Jordan) and each year he earns an estimated amount of $60 million dollars(forbes.com). Jordan is also the owner of the Charlotte Hornets. His success of the the court shows his determination to stay successful and also to not go broke like many other retired NBA players or professional athletes. Kareem is not as successful as Jordan is off the court but he still has a little bit of success in his new life.
In the 72-63 win, the Nittany Lions were led by their hometown trio. Lamar Stevens paced Penn State with 18 points, while Tony Carr added 14 and Mike Watkins contributed 11 of his own.

Carr, who runs the offense for Penn State, also leads the team in assists with 3.8 per game.
Basketball is and will always be a favorite sport for people of all ages. Not only to play, but also to watch and root for your favorite team. The 90’s era is one of the best in history; therefore, its most memorable. Players such as Stockton, Pippen, Isaiah, Magic and Barkley, also contributed to the game, yet none can compare to MJ. Born on February 17, 1963, Michael Jeffrey Jordan is arguably the greatest to bless the sport and culture.
For Michael’s first championship in the finals in 1991, his team won the series easily in a 4-1 victory against the Los Angeles Lakers. For most of Jordan’s career, his team usually consisted of at least one other Hall of Famer, and for all of his championships, he had Scottie Pippen. In the 1998 NBA Finals, Pippen was robbed of the Finals MVP award, which they instead gave to Jordan. In game 4, he put up 28 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists, which was crucial in that game, which they won 86-82 against the Utah Jazz. To have a teammate like Pippen, who averaged 17.5 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 5 assists per game in the playoffs, made it easier for Jordan to succeed in the finals.
He proved them wrong, the next year, season 2015/2016 he led his team in beating not only one of the best records of all time but the most records of all time. It was the bulls and his coach’s record for most wins in a single season, 73-9, beating the previous record of 72-10. Everyone knew that they were the best team in the history of the game but the question was if they could beat the Cavs again in the championship. They played though the finals and had made it back to the championship. After a long season it had finally happened, it was The Golden State Warriors vs.
