What 3 Numbers Did Michael Jordan Wear in His Career?

Michael Jeffrey Jordan, more commonly known as Michael Jordan or MJ, is one of the most popular basketball players in the world. He was born on February 17, 1963.
Today, Michael Jordan is the principal owner of the Charlotte Hornets NBA team. He was an instrumental figure in popularizing the sport in the 90s. Moreover, he was part of two three-peats with the Bulls on either side of a short-lived Minor League Baseball stint. In addition, Jordan played for the Chicago Bulls and the Washington Wizards over 3 spells.


Jordan wore the number 23 jersey in his North Carolina team and brought it to the NBA as well. The GOAT believed that the number gave him extra powers, and he had a reason to assume that way as well. He rocked the number at NCU and ended up as the number three pick in the 1984 NBA draft.
The jersey number 23 won six-NBA titles and six finals MVP awards and five regular-season most valuable player honors for MJ.


On Valentine’s Day, 1990, Jordan and the Bulls had an away game against the Magic. But hours before the game, Jordan’s iconic number 23 jersey was stolen. The staff wasn’t able to find it and in desperation; they tried to search for a number 23 jersey in the crowd that would fit Jordan.
After these futile attempts, the staff gave Jordan a spare jersey, which had no name, just the number 12.


In an interview in Netflix's special 'the Last Dance', Jordan explained why he switched to number 45. “I didn't want to wear 23 because I knew my father wasn't there to watch me, and I felt it was a new beginning and 45 was my first number when I was playing in high school,” he said.
