Jasmine Jordan, the daughter of NBA legend Michael Jordan, recently revealed a surprising side of her father. Despite his hard-nosed reputation, MJ shows a ‘soft’ demeanor around his grandson. As a generational player, he retired with an impressive NBA record, holding the highest-scoring average of 30.1 points per game and boasting 6 championships to his name. With five MVP awards under his belt, his impeccable shooting, ball-handling skills, excellent moves, and defensive prowess played a pivotal role in determining the outcome of numerous games.
