Michael Jordan, the NBA legend who was an All-Star and NBA MVP and played with the Chicago Bulls, died Saturday at his home in Los Angeles, his longtime manager told The Associated Press.
He was 90.
Jordan, the former Bulls star who won two NBA titles and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2018, died Sunday at the age of 85, his manager, Kevin McHale, said in a statement.
He played in the NBA from 1967 to 1979.
Jordan’s final game was the Bulls’ 104-97 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Nov. 13, 1981.
He is the only player in league history to score 20,000 points, be named an All Star, win MVP and be inducted to the Basketball Association of America Hall of Honor.
Jordan was the NBA’s first player to play a season without an MVP award, and was named to three All-NBA teams.
He finished his career with the Bulls with a franchise-record 7,845 points, and averaged a career-high 24.9 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.
He also was a three-time MVP.
Jordan and his wife, Jeanie, have three children: Shannon Jordan, Jordan and daughter Brooke.
He died at a Los Angeles hospital of complications related to a heart condition, his agent, Rob Pelinka, said.
He had suffered a heart attack and was transported to a hospital in Los Angles, according to the Associated Press, but died at home.
A tribute to Jordan was unveiled by UCLA on Wednesday, with the hashtag #IamMichael on social media.
“Michael Jordan was a man who stood tall for what he believed in and what he did every day,” UCLA Chancellor Robert Christ said in the statement.
“We are deeply saddened by his passing.”
