Although he is now a businessman, he was once famous as a player on the basketball court. In fact, I am currently talking about the American businessman Michael Jeffrey Jordan. However, he prefers to abbreviate his name as MJ. Similarly, he is better known as MJ. Anyway, I say he is the greatest basketball player of all time by accolades.

Moreover, Michael played for fifteen seasons in the National Basketball Association. He even defeated an NBA championship with the Chicago Bulls. In short, as much as I praise his name, everything falls short next to his achievements. However, he is currently the principal owner and chairman of a racing company.
