HOUSTON — It’s a dilemma that has passed down through the ages: What does one get a king for a birthday present?
Well, the NBA just happens to be throwing a celebratory bash for Michael Jordan’s 50th birthday in the form of the 62nd All-Star Game (8 PM ET, TNT) and there is sure to be some kind of cake.
But the best wishes to Air Jordan have been rolling in all day:
Happy Birthday to my mentor,big brother,boss man most importantly the greatest player to ever play the game Michael Jordan! Enjoy…—
