Michael Jordan is a former American basketball player who led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships and won the Most Valuable Player Award five times. While he may not be playing on the court, Jordan remains active in his sport. He became the majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats in 2010 and serves as the team's chairman. And improving the team's less-than-stellar record seems to be Jordan's number one priority these days.
Any basketball court in the country would immediately shut down if Michael Jordan showed up to play a game. The almost-mythical status of Jordan transcends just basketball, but when you see him on the court you know you're seeing something special. That's why he should be allowed (and encouraged) to play whenever and wherever he wants. He put in countless hours at the gym to get that good, he deserves it.
Celebrities can do what they want at any time, and it's a free country. Michael Jordan had a clause in his contract called "for the love the game." He stipulated that he should be able to play basketball at any time, anywhere, regardless. That's because he loved the game so much. Normally, athletes have some kind of physical restrictions placed on them because teams invest in their bodies and don't want prized athletes to get hurt. Jordan stipulated an exception, which was unheard of at the time.
Michael Jordan shouldn't be able to do things others cant do just because he is one of the greatest players of all time. According to mahna carter it says all people should be treated equal but this is not equal to others doesnt he have his own home with a basketball court how come he has to go to other people stadiums and shut it down.
Celebrities like Michael Jordan should not be given privileges to play basketball anytime time because they have already retired, that will be glorifying them too much. They should only be allowed to participate in games organized for purposes of raising money for charity or when they are conducting basket ball clinics.
