The Legacy of Michael Jordan: A Farewell to the Greatest Basketball Star

The Legacy of Michael Jordan: A Farewell to the Greatest Basketball Star

On April 16, 2003, one of the greatest basketball stars of all time retired. Michael “Air” Jordan played his last game. His career ended in defeat: with the Washington Wizards he was defeated by the Philadelphia 76ers 87:107.

And yet it was a big moment for the then 40-year-old. Shortly after hitting his last free throw, Jordan left the court for the final time in his professional career with 1:44 minutes left in the game – to a standing ovation from the entire audience, including the coach and players of the opposing team.

With the Chicago Bulls, with whom he was under contract for a total of twelve years, Jordan won the NBA championship six times and was named “Most Valuable Player” (MVP) of the season five times.
