February 17, 1963, a star was born. Raised in Wilmington, North Carolina, by way of Brooklyn, New York, Michael Jeffrey Jordan is a larger-than-life figure whose story is marked by its dualities. He's a longtime fierce competitor and an eventual NBA champion; a Hall of Fame athlete and a businessman; a movie star and an aspiring professional baseball player (though many care to forget the latter).
Jordan is the kind of luminary who comes around once in a lifetime to set the bar, only to eventually reinvent it. His talent on the basketball court propelled him to unimaginable heights, while his signature Air Jordan shoe line with Nike made him a renowned global brand. And now, he's now 54-years-old, with a legacy longer than train smoke that athletes still chase today.
In the 1990s, everyone aspired to "be like Mike", whether the goal was to soar through the sky with a Spaulding in hand and your tongue sticking out, or the more tangible approach of making the MJ aesthetic your own while rocking a fresh pair of Air Jordan sneakers. Present day, much of the younger generation have never seen Jordan's natural prowess for scoring, defending, and playmaking; they only know of the proverbial war stories and the footwear he wore during his many rigorous battles.
