The Jordan Legacy!

Michael Jeffrey Jordan takes his place among the other NBA greats tonight when he will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. Jordan's legacy is secure as simply the greatest basketball player of all time, and for me it's not even an argument. He's arguably the greatest athlete of all time, with perhaps Muhammad Ali and Tiger Woods providing argument in that conversation.

Jordan made it cool to be bald again, he always dressed impeccably when doing after game press conferences, and hopefully set an example of how a black man should carry himself in a professional setting. While the black male continues to struggle with an identity crisis in our society in some cases, Jordan's will to win and competitiveness are attributes that would set anyone on a positive path towards success. Jordan is simply the standard in which all basketball players are measured, and the Chicago Tribune offers a special report on "His Airness."
