Former UNC Basketball star Michael Jordan has reached the Final Four in ESPN’s greatest players bracket
It’s been just over two weeks since we have had live sports to watch during this COVID-19 pandemic and it doesn’t look like they are returning any time soon.
While people have their own ways of passing time through this, ESPN decided to do a bracket breaking down the greatest college basketball players of all-time. The 64 player bracket consisting of mens and womens college basketball players was introduced just over 10 days ago and has now advanced to the Final Four where one UNC legend is looking to advance and claim his spot as the greatest college basketball player ever.
That legend? Michael Jordan.
The GOAT himself has made it to the Final Four as the highest seed still left, being listed as the No. 2 seed in the Midwest Region. He is up against the No. 3 seed out of the East Region, Magic Johnson, with a trip to the finals on the line.
To vote for Jordan, simply visit the tweet below and select his name:
Jordan came out of a tough Midwest Region featuring (1) Bill Walton, (3) Cheryl Miller, (4) David Thompson and a dangerous 12-seed in Stephen Curry. To get to the Final Four, Jordan beat out Curry in the Elite 8 round just a few days ago.
Playing three seasons at North Carolina, Jordan won the John Wooden Award (1983-84), Naismith Award (1983-84), the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year award (1983-94) and was named a consensus First Team All-American in both 1983 and 1984. Oh, he also hit the game winning jumper to beat Georgetown in the 1982 National Championship as a freshman.
