Michael Jordan turned 50, giving this year's NBA All-Stars a chance to reflect on his illustrious career and how much he still means to the sport.

In a weekend filled with the NBA's greatest players, Jordan was the topic no one could stop talking about. Though he hasn't played since the 2002-03 season, Jordan's influence still permeates the league and its players.

Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade says, "everything he did was groundbreaking."

Jordan won six titles and picked up five MVP awards during a career that began in 1984 and was spent mostly with the Chicago Bulls.

Jordan was in Houston this weekend, and celebrated his birthday early with a private bash two days ago at the Museum of Fine Arts with guests including LeBron James and Kobe Bryant.

How do you expect the Breakers to perform in this season's Australian NBL?

Last season was a blip, they'll be champions once again

They'll go close to another title, beaten finalists I'd say

Playoffs for sure, but can't see them going any further

Not too excited, they'll miss the playoffs again
