As one of the greatest basketball players of all time celebrates his 56th birthday, the NBA community took to social media Sunday to wish Michael Jordan a happy birthday while also remember the impact he made on the NBA.
Jordan finished his NBA career in 2003 with a long list of accolades, including six NBA championships, six Finals MVP awards and he was named an All-Star 14 times. He spent the majority of his career with the Bulls before a brief retirement stint following the 1997-98 season, and then played two seasons with the Wizards.
