Hall of Fame Opens Michael Jordan Exhibit

The Basketball Hall of Fame has opened a Michael Jordan exhibit before his enshrinement next month.

The display features items from Jordan's NBA career and from his time at North Carolina and with the 1992 Olympic Dream Team. There is also a batting glove from Jordan's brief foray into baseball.

The exhibit is made possible in part by a $250,000 donation from Nike and features several pair of the superstar's Air Jordan shoes.

Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA titles and now runs basketball operations for the Charlotte Bobcats. He will enter the Hall of Fame on Sept. 11 with former NBA stars David Robinson and John Stockton and coaches Jerry Sloan and C. Vivian Stringer.

    Snake Oil- I can assure you MJ is an african american. You just can't stand the fact that he's an accomplished african american. How dare you dismiss the fact that he's a black man, have you lost your mind!

    I respect David Robinson much more than MJ. Robinson attended the Navel Academy and served this Country. He is a Great American....I can't say that about MJ. Your right Aunt B....people have no idea.

    Michael is one of the finest players in the sport. Not only ability, but quality of personality. As a strong fan of this man that brought the NBA back on TV in the world, I will always respect him for his honest achievements. Michael isn't a African American, he is an American Hero and a true American. Someday when Al Sharpton and Jessie Jacksons of the world are gone, the racisim will leave as well. This is my hope in my lifetime. This man would be a better president than Ronald Reagan. Don't laugh, Ronald was an actor, Michael is an athelete. Michael's dad, having met his father (at a UNC game) before he was tragically murdered, was a fine American. I will also say Michael was close to his dad. I am sure this was a sad day for the Jordans in Wilmingotn. I can only hope that the example Michael that set, a high standard for atheletes will be achieved by others. Vick, step asside.
