29 years to the day since Jordan signed first NBA contract.
It’s 29 years to the day since Michael Jordan signed his first contract to join the Chicago Bulls, and it would become a significant period for the franchise.
Widely referred to as MJ, the 50-year-old spent two separate spells with the Bulls during his playing career after being picked at number three in the 1984 draft, and brought huge success to the city.
Jordan ended his career as a six-time NBA champion, a six-time NBA Finals MVP, a five-time NBA Most Valuable Player and a 14-time NBA All Star amongst numerous other accolades he collected during a glittering career.
The former Bulls shooting guard is widely recognised as the greatest player to ever play the game of basketball, and added two Olympic gold medals to his collection during his time with Team USA during the 1990s.
Having already had various tributes paid to him earlier this year for his 50th birthday, the NBA have now been remembering perhaps the most significant day in his career.
