IT’S MICHAEL JORDAN!
Six-time NBA champion Michael Jordan hit up the Inaugural Mike Weir Charity Classic at the Glen Abbey Golf Club Monday (Jul 20) in Oakville, Ontario (Canada).
The former basketball star is currently part-owner of the Charlotte Bobcats and he owns the “Michael Jordan Suzuki” (a pro closed-course motorcycle road racing team sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Association). And he has also owned his own clothing/shoe brand, known as “Jordan Brand,” since 1984 (then known as Air Jordan).
After making a pretty big name for himself with his basketball career, he retired in 1993 to play professional baseball, only to rejoin his basketball team, the Chicago Bulls, just two years later. He retired from basketball for a second time in 1999, but once again, returned to basketball 2 years later as a member of the Washington Wizards.
He retired for good in 2003 and will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in September 2009.
