    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.

    Biografía:
    Lebron James es alero en el equipo de NBA, Miami Heat, desde la temporada 2010/2011.
    El 30 de diciembre de 1984, LeBron James nacía en Akron, Ohio. La única figura dominante de su familia era, y aún lo es, su madre Gloria, ya que de su padre no se sabe nada. De niño, LeBron y Gloria siempre estaban mudándose debido a problemas financieros.
    Era frecuente que Gloria, que se convirtió en madre a los 16, dejara a su pequeño hijo con otras familias. Admitió que de niño LeBron vio cosas que ningún niño debiera ver. Cuando los padres y abuelos de Gloria murieron, Lebron y su madre no tenían ningún lugar a donde ir. Pero había gente que los ayudaba. Gloria y LeBron conocieron a la familia Walker en West Akron, Ohio, y cada día de Acción de Gracias, aún hoy, cuando el dinero no es un problema, James y su madre pasan el día con ellos. Después de todo, los Walker ayudaron a un Lebron de quinto grado en el momento en que más lo necesitaba. La convivencia con esta familia fue fundamental en la transición de Lebron de niño a adolescente. El día que cambió la vida de LeBron James para siempre fue en el otoño de 1994.

    Una tarde, Frank Walker, el patriarca de la familia, puso una pelota de basketball en las manos del niño que en ese momento tenía 9 años de edad. Walker pasó mucho tiempo enseñándole al joven sobre este juego en los siguientes tres años. El segundo paso en el entrenamiento de James vino cuando conoció a Dru Joyce II, que entrenó al joven en el campeonato nacional amateur a los 14 años. Joyce II se convirtió en el mentor de James, y en su entrenador desde entonces. Dru Joyce II y los Walker le recalcaron a Lebron la importancia de terminar su educación, y lo mantuvieron lejos de todo el glamour durante sus años en St. Vicent-St. Mary High School. En la preparatoria ganó tres campeonatos estatales y una medalla de plata en los cuatro años que jugó con los Irish. Luego vinieron sus apariciones en la televisión y la posibilidad de lograr buen dinero. Además de su madre y tíos, James se mantiene cerca de todos aquellos que lo ayudaron a llegar a la cima: los Walker, Joyce II, Lee y Debar Cotton, su ex-compañero de equipo Maverick Carter, así como de otros compañeros de la campaña del 2003. “Tengo este círculo íntimo”, dijo James. “Lo he tenido por años. Y si no has estado en este círculo desde el Primer Día, nunca lo estarás. Siempre hay gente que quiere entrar a este círculo, y si lo permites, lo romperán”. Gloria estuvo cuando James ganó el campeonato estatal de Ohio como estudiante, junior y senior. Estuvo cuando James anotó 52 puntos, en un titánico esfuerzo contra Westchester (de Los Angeles, California) el 8 de febrero de 2003, su mayor cantidad de anotaciones hasta el día de hoy. Para su cumpleaños 18, Gloria le compró a LeBron un Hummer. Toda esta influencia ayudó a James a convertirse en una leyenda del mundo del basketball. Mayo del 2003 fue un mes crucial para LeBron James y su creciente carrera profesional. Con Aaron Goodwin como su agente, LeBron llegó a un acuerdo con Nike por siete años y $90 millones, y el 22 de mayo del mismo año firmó un acuerdo con Upper Deck, haciendo de James un individuo con $100 millones antes de graduarse. Además el 22 de mayo se anunció que jugaría en los Cleveland Cavaliers, lo que significaba que comenzaría su carrera profesional jugando en su estado natal. “"Estoy ahora en Cleveland y estoy realmente muy contento"”, dijo cuando los Cavaliers decidieron contratarlo, la misma noche que le prometió a su madre que le compraría una casa nueva. “Es un gran día para el deporte de Cleveland”, dijo el gerente de los Cavaliers Gordon Gund. “Garantizo dar mi mejor esfuerzo todos los días”, le aseguró James a los fanáticos de los Cavaliers, que celebraban su llegada como si hubieran ganado el campeonato. “Solo quiero ganar”.

    Kobe Bryant is an American professional basketball player for Los Angeles Lakers. Throughout his carreer, he has played 13 times in the All-Star Game, winning four All-Star MVP Awards; knows what it feels like to be NBA champion five times, has been NBA Finals' MVP twice, has won an Olympic Gold Medal, was Slam Dunk Champion in 1997 and NBA MVP in 2008. He is widely considered one of the best, and most complete, players in the NBA.
    Kobe grew up in Italy, as his father played in the Italian basketball league. When he retired, the Bryant family moved back to the US, and Kobe enrolled at Lower Merion High School in Pennsylvania. At school, he jump-started a spectacular varsity career, at the end of which he was considered by most analysts as the top high school player in the country. He decided to declare directly for the 1996 Draft, where he was picked 17th overall by the Charlotte Hornets. He immediately got traded to the Lakers, the team that has been his home for 15 years.
    After two unremarkable seasons, in 1998 Bryant began to emerge as one of the league's best guards. Playing alongside Shaquille O'Neal, in 1999 the arrival of legendary coach Phil Jackson transformed the Lakers into a realistic championship contender. The team went on to win three consecutive finals (a "three-peat"), with Bryant and O'Neal rising to the elite class of NBA players. Playoff dissapointments followed until 2008, where the Lakers achieved their first of two consecutive championship wins (repeat). Bryant also played for the USA national team, winning a gold medal in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics against Spain, and stating his willingness to participate in the 2012 London Olympic Games.
