I believe that Michael Jordan is to be the best NBA player of all time because his stats and achievements have proven that he has done better than almost all nba players in the past in certain aspects. He has won six NBA championships, has won the most scoring titles with 10 and has won five mvp awards. His skill level and athleticism was very unique compared to other NBA players throughout history. Almost no one in the NBA could keep up with because he was a very good player.
Michael Jordan has had a very motivational life story. Jordan was born on february 17th, 1963 in Brooklyn, New York. He was a very good athlete and student as he would always get constant B’s or A’s; he attended Emsley A. Laney high school. In his sophomore year of high school, he got dropped from his varsity basketball team due to his height. His high school coach decided to drop him for a 6’8 sophomore that year. In his junior year, Jordan grew 5 inches and was the star player. He ended up averaging 25 points a game and led his highschool to a state championship.
After Jordan’s success in high school, he took his talents to North Carolina university in 1981 where he would play college basketball. He would stay there for three years and also did pretty well in college. He ended up winning an NCAA championship in 1982. He also won awards such as the 1982 ACC rookie of the year, 1982 freshman all american, 1983 national player of the year, etc. After his successful run in college, he declared for the 1984 NBA draft and was selected by the bulls in the first round with the third pick.
After being drafted by the Chicago Bulls, He took the league by storm. During his rookie year, he averaged an outstanding 28 points per game. He also won the 1984-85 rookie of the year award and rookie first team. Later on in his career, He would end up making 14 NBA all star appearances, win 6 NBA championships, 5 mvp awards, 6x NBA finals MVP, 10 league scoring titles and NBA defensive player of the year. I believe that these awards were the most significant accomplishments during his career in basketball. These achievements allowed him to make a name for himself in the sports world. He also considered one of the most skilled basketball players to ever play on a court on the professional stage. He is also considered one of the greatest athletes of all time. One interesting fact is that during his career, he decided to retire from basketball for a year and play minor league baseball for the chicago white sox.
In conclusion, michael jordan’s statistics and skill level can be proven that he is the best if not one of the best players to ever play the game of professional basketball.
