Former high-flying Chicago Bulls shooting guard known as "Air Jordan." He is considered by many to be the greatest basketball player of all-time. He was a 6-time NBA champion, 6-time NBA Finals MVP, and 5-time NBA MVP.
He didn't make the varsity squad as a sophomore at Emsley A. Laney High School in Wilmington, North Carolina because he was only 5'11".
He was a noted product endorser and famously dunked from the free-throw line during a slam-dunk competition, leading Gatorade to launch a marketing campaign with the slogan Like Mike.
