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.
