The number of records that Jordan holds will boggle the mind of even the most seasoned mathematics wizard. Michael Jordan holds the single series NBA Finals record for highest PPG average and was named in the All-NBA First Team ten times. He holds the record for leading the scoring in the most number of seasons "10". A testimony to his dominance in the Chicago Bulls team was that he was the highest scorer, had the most steals and assists in the team.

Jordan shocked the NBA by announcing his retirement prior to the 1993-94 season. His famous number 23 jersey was retired on 1st November, 1994. He spent the year playing minor league baseball for the Class AA Birmingham Barons of the Chicago White Sox organization. His stint in baseball was a short lived affair and he was soon back in the familiar Red and White Chicago Bulls jersey.

Michael Jordan then moved to the L.A. lakers and played alondside Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and Rick Fox.

Michael Jordan's ability to rise above his peers and competitors is captured by his statement, "body could stand the crutches but my mind couldn't stand the sideline".
