    Chicago, Illinois

    Profession:
    Basketball Player

    Biography:

    Read more


    Michael Jordan is a retired American basketball player, active businessman and majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats. He is almost universally considered the greatest basketball player of all time and one of the best American athletes in history. Throughout his career, he has won six NBA championships (earning the MVP for all six finals), five NBA MVP awards and 14 inclusions in the All-Star games; leading the Chicago Red Bulls during their best historic period. He also won two Olympic gold medals, in 1984 and 1992.
    A native New Yorker, he moved to North Carolina when he was three. At high school he played baseball, basketball and football, although he was at first rejected for the varsity basketball team for being too short. He attended the University of North Carolina before being drafted as number three pick by the Bulls in 1984. In his first season he was selected Rookie of the Year and included in the All-Star starting team. In 1988 he won his first season MVP, after consistently leading the league in scoring. The Bulls won the NBA finals in three consecutive years, from 1991 to 1993, earning them their first “three-peat.” Jordan was the MVP in for each win. He was part of the 1992 Dream Team that won the Summer Olympics. In 1993 he abruptly announced his retirement to pursue a baseball career. A year and a half later, however, he was back on the basketball court.

    From 1995 to 1998, Jordan won another three consecutive finals with the Chicago Bulls. After achieving this unprecedented feat, he announced his second retirement. However, he returned to the courts in 2001, this time as a player for the Washington Wizards (switching from his usual shooting guard to a small forward position). He made his third and final retirement in 2003. After retiring, he went on to purchase the majority of shares of the Charlotte Bobcats in 2010.
    Magic Johnson said of him, “there's Michael Jordan and then there's the rest of us.” He definitely is the best-known figure in basketball of all time, and as such, has had a heavy involvement in many marketing campaigns for different brand names.

    Memorable quotes:
    I've reached the pinnacle of my career. I just feel that I don't have anything else to prove.
    I'm back.
    I've missed over 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games.
    26 times I've been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed.
    I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
    There will be a player greater than me.
    Limits, like fears, are often just an illusion.
    Enjoy every minute of life. Never second-guess life.

    Creció con la imagen en su memoria de dos grandes campeones en el All Tennis Club, Stefan Edberg y Boris Becker, cuando vio por televisión la final de Wimbledon que ambos disputaron en 1989.
    En 1998, con sólo diecisiete años debutó como profesional absoluto de la ATP. Aquel año disputó sólo cinco partidos, pero terminó en el número 302 del ranking, con lo que en un solo año había avanzado 398 puestos. El año siguiente puede considerarse el de su auténtico debut en el circuito mundial, porque jugó ya varios torneos importantes, entre ellos Roland Garros, Wimbledon, Miami y Montecarlo. Terminada, pues, la temporada 1999, pasó a ocupar el número 64 de la ATP.

    El año 2000 fue también de aprendizaje, sobre todo mirándose en el espejo de su ídolo moderno, Pete Sampras, aunque el suizo es un jugador más versátil porque se adapta mejor a todo tipo de superficies, incluida la tierra. Aquella temporada ya empezó a superar las primeras rondas, e incluso alcanzó los octavos de final de Roland Garros.
    En 2001 confirmó que su proyección era imparable. Llegó a cuartos de final de los torneos en los que en 1999 no pasó de la primera ronda y, además, consiguió su primer título de la ATP, el Torneo de Milán, jugado bajo techo, y acabó 13º del ranking. Terminó la temporada siguiente como jugador revelación de 2002, considerado el año de su consolidación tras ganar los torneos de Viena y de Sydney, así como el Master Series de Hamburgo.
    Al concluir el año 2003, la estrella suiza terminó en el segundo puesto de la Carrera de Campeones de la ATP tras ganar siete torneos: su primer Grand Slam (Wimbledon), y los abiertos de Houston, Marsella, Dubai, Munich, Halle y Viena; es decir, en todas las superficies. Además, se proclamó campeón de la Masters Cup, al derrotar en la final a Andre Agassi.
    El 13 de septiembre de 2004 se convirtió oficialmente en el campeón de la Carrera de Campeones de la ATP, clasificación en la que se puntúa la actuación en los más relevantes torneos del año. Desde la creación de la era Open en 1968, era el tenista que más pronto alcanzaba la primera plaza de esta clasificación.
    De esta forma, Federer, que humilló al excelente jugador australiano Lleyton Hewitt en la final del Open de Estados Unidos
    Compagina sus entrenamientos con la práctica de otros deportes, como el golf, el fútbol y el esquí alpino, y dedica algunos momentos a la marcha de la Fundación Roger Federer, que creó en diciembre de 2003 para atender a los niños desamparados de Sudáfrica que viven en New Brighton, cerca de Port Elizabeth, y promocionar el deporte entre los jóvenes.
