Inside the 1984 NBA Draft, Michael was chosen through the Chicago Bulls while using No. three general pick. This was following seeing Jordan execute a great 3 many years in North Carolina and also co-captain plus star from the Olympic basketball team in 1984 that as you all know selected the gold medal.
