I had this idea to tell a history of a person through their sports team affiliations. I thought a great sportsman to start with would be Michael Jordan, so I made a pennant that features all the teams he played for in his career. Let’s test your Michael Jordan knowledge, GO:
Can you imagine being the coach at the Emsley A. Laney High School Buccaneers? You cut Michael Jordan not once but TWICE. I would almost take pride in being that horrible at identifying basketball talent.
Poor Patrick Ewing. Starting at UNC and continuing into their professional careers, Michael Jordan routinely stood in the way of this dude’s shot at championship glory.
Bill Wellington, Luc Longley and Will Purdue are just a few of the terrible puds that Michael Jordan dragged to multiple championships.
Air Jordan is still the most iconic shoe brand in the world and the main guy they represent hasn’t played basketball for two decades. A large portion of Air Jordan owners weren’t alive when he played.
This was a strange thing, at the height of his basketball powers Michael Jordan quit basketball and played for the Chicago White Sox minor league team, the Birmingham Barons. This would be like Superman deciding to be a plumber for a few years.
Michael Jordan helped defeat the evil Monstars when he joined Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes cartoon characters on the Tune Squad. This film was a high water mark for the medium in the 1990’s.
OK in the interest of full disclosure I left the Washington Wizards, where Jordan played from 2001 – 2003. I never really watched that team after they changed from the Washington Bullets.
