    The Los Angeles Lakers might have an average season, but superstar guard Kobe Bryant had more reasons to be happy and confident.

    No less than his “Airness” Michael Jordan said if there is an heir apparent to his greatness that National Basketball Association player would definitely be Kobe Bryant. Jordan said Bryant plays and compete like him which is why he deserved to be compared to him.

    It can be recalled that after the retirement of Jordan, many experts picked some players as his heir apparent such as Bryant, Vince Carter and Lebron James. But apparently, Jordan has officially anointed Bryant as his heir apparent. Bryant in past interviews is very vocal in saying that Jordan is his idol and that he patterned his game after the NBA great.

    One of the greatest player in the history of the National Basketball Association was ordered to pay $100,000 by NBA officials for issuing comment regarding a certain NBA player when the NBA lockout is still ongoing.

    Michael Jordan, who is now an NBA owner of the Charlotte Bobcats was given the monetary penalty after he issued some statements on Australian star center Andrew Bogut who currently plays for the Milwaukee Bucks. It can be recalled that part of the NBA lockout is the prohibition to speak about players, coaches, officials to the media.

    Jordan recently told the Australian newspaper Sydney Herald that Bogut is a great player who has the potential to be a superstar in the NBA. He said to become a superstar in the NBA, Bogut needs to overcome his elbow injury which has bothered his playing career in the NBA.

    The penalty given to Jordan showed the world that even superstars can be penalized if they violate NBA laws. Jordan was one of the most effectively marketed athletes of his generation and was instrumental in popularizing the NBA around the world in the 1980s and 1990s.

    After a standout career at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was a member of the Tar Heels’ National Championship team in 1982, Jordan joined the NBA’s Chicago Bulls in 1984.  He quickly emerged as a league star, entertaining crowds with his prolific scoring.

    His leaping ability, illustrated by performing slam dunks from the free throw line in slam dunk contests, earned him the nicknames “Air Jordan” and “His Airness”. He also gained a reputation for being one of the best defensive players in basketball.In 1991, he won his first NBA championship with the Bulls, and followed that achievement with titles in 1992 and 1993, securing a “three-peat”.

    Although Jordan abruptly retired from basketball at the beginning of the 1993–94 NBA season to pursue a career in baseball, he rejoined the Bulls in 1995 and led them to three additional championships (1996, 1997, and 1998) as well as an NBA-record 72 regular-season wins in the 1995–96 NBA season. Jordan retired for a second time in 1999, but returned for two more NBA seasons from 2001 to 2003 as a member of the Washington Wizards.

    Jordan’s individual accolades and accomplishments include five MVP awards, ten All-NBA First Team designations, nine All-Defensive First Team honors, fourteen NBA All-Star Game appearances, three All-Star Game MVP awards, ten scoring titles, three steals titles, six NBA Finals MVP awards, and the 1988 NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award. He holds the NBA records for highest career regular season scoring average (30.12 points per game) and highest career playoff scoring average (33.45 points per game).

    In 1999, he was named the greatest North American athlete of the 20th century by ESPN, and was second to Babe Ruth on the Associated Press’s list of athletes of the century. He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009.  Jordan is also noted for his product endorsements. He fueled the success of Nike’s Air Jordan sneakers, which were introduced in 1985 and remain popular today.Jordan also starred in the 1996 feature film Space Jam as himself.
