Michael Jordan’s 50th birthday is this Sunday, and you can bet that the various sectors of the sports media are making a bonanza out of it. The latest is Sports Illustrated, who’s putting Mike on their cover for the (coincidentally) 50th time. Sometimes the universe gives you a gift like that, and you simply have no choice but to run with it.
The February 18th issue of the magazine features a cover story by journalist Phil Taylor that chronicles Jordan’s massive impact on sports and the world in general. There’s also a gallery of all 50 Jordan covers, which you can also check out here.
The issue is hitting newsstands next week, so look out for it if you like Mike.
