2023/10/28

Michael Jordan, the famous basketball player, had many interesting stories and facts throughout his career. One notable battle was when Jordan played while sick, known as the "flu game." However, it was later revealed that Jordan may have been poisoned through a pizza he ate before the game. 

Another well-known fact is Jordan's iconic tongue-out gesture, which he inherited from his father who used to do the same while working. Jordan found it helped him concentrate better. Despite his wealth, Jordan has also been generous with his money. 

In his final year with the Washington Wizards, he donated his entire salary to the victims and families of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, aiming to regain the trust of the American people.  

On Valentine's Day in 1990, Jordan's jersey was stolen right before a game. He ended up wearing a number 12 jersey without his name on it and scored an impressive 49 points. The thief was never found. 

Lastly, Jordan idolized Magic Johnson and even before entering the NBA, he was called "Magic Jordan" by his friends. The license plate of his first car also had this nickname.
