Half a century ago, the greatest basketball player and perhaps the single most dominant athlete in his respective field was born. But it’s easy to forget that this man is of man and not of god, and that his greatness wasn’t handed down to him in some ritualistic manner. He fought for his right to earn the spotlight, even when he was cut from his High School varsity basketball team, when the athletic administration called him “Mike”, and when the NBA’s stars tried to shun him out of All-Star Games. From several retirements and several comebacks to basketball in a jersey and a suit, Michael Jordan’s life has been a incomparable storybook of success, failure, blessing, tragedy, redemption, and arrogance. It’s a story so heroic that we desperately force to keep it in our memories as if these events happened yesterday, and while it’s certainly impossible to summarize Jordan’s career completely, here’s our attempt to do so in fifty iconic photos. Happy Fiftieth Birthday to Michael Jordan.
