Michael Jordan is one of the greatest players to ever play basketball. The Chicago Bulls star was a force at both ends of the floor. Not only was he a generational goal scorer, but he could also neutralize the best player on the other team. At the peak of its powers, Jordan’s fandom was unlike anything else in basketball.

Fans and other players went crazy for Jordan. This immense popularity has led to mega sponsorship deals with big brands. His most famous endorsement deal of all time would be with Nike, which has now turned into a business partnership with the launch of the Jordan brand. Jordan was adored on and off the pitch. Every kid playing basketball and every young player coming out of the draft wanted to be him, but only one who would ever come close.
