Michael Jordan is probably the greatest basketball player to have ever lived. Jordan began playing professionally in the NBA after being selected by the Chicago Bulls in 1984 as the third overall draft pick. His performance earned him the nickname "Air Jordan", after which several products were named, including shoes. He won his first NBA championship in 1991 and kept the streak going in 1992 and 1993. He retired in 1993 to try his hand at baseball but returned to basketball with the Washington Wizards in 2001.
