Shouldn't he have his own separate Hall of Fame...he rewrote the history of the game...elevated it to an art form....really now!

The best birthday gift I ever got is a frame by frame print of Jordan's last shot in a Bulls uniform.

What a career. I STILL miss watching him play. Thanks for the memories Michael. Congratulations!

Michael Jordan has always been something special to me. I appreciate all he has done for basketball and giving me a role model and inspiration as I grew up. Being 21 now, I watch highlights of him and still have goosebumps when I see them. He is, was and always will be the greatest that ever lived. Just imagine his already enourmous legend if he hadnt retired to attempt baseball. Congrats Michael, although it is no surprise. You deserve every second of it.

Do you all really think Jordan is a hall of fame caliber talent? Or is it just because everyone else in the league he played with was subpar? Would he have been as good without Tony Kukok, John Paxon, Bill Wennington, and Steve Kurr? I don't think so!!!! I just wish the Jazz would have one one championship over the bulls.

Very much a seriously forgone conclusion. But formality or not MJ deserves his congrats. Smart-ar$e commenters be damned, Chicago Bulls fans in particular and the game of basketball in general owe him tremendously for his accomplishments on the hardwood floors.

Jazz Fan, you must be out of your mind!

John Paxson was a nobody without Jordan. He still is a nobody, always will be a nobody. Hopefully the guy will step down as the GM at the end of the year.

As for the rest of those people they were all good players. But I seriously doubt the BULLS would have won all those championships without Jordan. Furthermore lets not forget Pippen.

This is pre-mature. He still has another comeback in him!
