What is there to say about Michael Jordan that hasn’t already been said? He was spectacular in his final season in Chicago. Jordan started and played in all 82 games averaging 38 minutes, 28 points and nearly 6 rebounds per game. After averaging 33.5 points per game in the Finals, Jordan was once again named Finals MVP.
His Airness would retire once again after the ’98 Finals, but it wouldn’t stick. Jordan returned to the game of basketball in 2000 as a part-owner and president of basketball operations for the Washington Wizards. Jordan couldn’t stay in the owner’s box forever and in 2001 he announced he would be coming returning to the court. He played two seasons in Washington, before finally retiring for good in 2003.
