The greatest of all time. Not many humans on the planet have ever been called that, nor would many be taken seriously if they were. But Michael Jordan is the exception. Other than maybe Babe Ruth or Muhammad Ali, no other athlete has had as much worldwide appeal, or the ability transcend cultures and nationalities, becoming an ambassador for their sport – whether they liked it or not – quite like Jordan. And while he was no means perfect as a man, his game more or less was. He was the most dominant athlete of the 1990s, leading the Chicago Bulls to six championships, winning six Finals MVP awards, and was AP athlete of the year from 1991 to ’93, among countless other achievements during his 15-year career.
He was the role model to millions of kids, and despite being intensely protective of his personal life, he did let a few details slip – mainly that he loved cigars, golf, and fast cars. In fact, Jordan still loves cars so much that it’s hard to keep track of just how many he has at any given time. He rarely registers them in his own name, and never holds on to them for too long. But he’s had enough Corvettes, Porsches, and Ferraris to prove that the man knows what he likes.
Now 52, Jordan still grabs headlines. Whether he’s becoming the first billionaire in sports history, or declaring that in his prime he could beat LeBron James one-on-one, he still casts a huge shadow over the game of basketball, something that’s unlikely to change anytime soon. So here, in chronological order, are 7 cars that have been good enough for the Greatest of All Time.
