At 6'6", Michael Jordan is one of the tallest public figures out there. He was born on 17th February 1963 in Brooklyn, New York. His father infused in him a love of baseball, and not basketball, as he was growing up, but inspired by his brother, he soon switched to basketball. In 1984, he was selected to play with the Chicago Bulls. For a while he tried to stop and even signed a contract with the Chicago White Sox for baseball, but it soon became obvious that Jordan and basketball went together. He returned to the NBA and went on to win NBA's 'Greatest Player of All time' title. In 1996 he starred in the children's movie 'Space Jam'.
