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 50th birthday to the Greatest Of All Time Michael Jordan.

    It’s a privilege to see you play and grace the basketball court throughout your 15 year career.

    I’m so sad when you retired for the last time but memories last forever. You set the HIGHEST STANDARD for all present and future basketball players to excel if not equal what you did before.

    But NO ONE will ever come close to your LEGENDARY GREATNESS.

    Happy 50th birthday MJ, I am honored to share the same birthday as you. You are the greatest basketball player ever period. I love Kobe and I love Lebron but to be honest they don’t even come close. May God bless you with good health and long life and may you forever be grateful to the heavenly father for blessing you with those awesome skills that you displayed on the basketball court.

    Once upon a time, behind the “iron curtain”, there was not much information available from the West side of the world…
    Once upon a time, behind the “Iron curtain”, there was a small kid that dreamed to become a basketball player…
    Once upon a time “the wall” fell and guess what, the first name that came across to that kid, was the name of Michael Jordan…Once upon a time, Michael Jordan became something more than a one of the best basketball players ever, it was the messenger of the freedom!!!
    The rest is history…and a great one…MJ became the “Greatest of all time”!
    Happy Birthday Michael, thanks for everything! :)

    Congradulations Mike.
    And please let me take this opportunity to THANK YOU for what you have done for my home
    town Charlotte, North Carolina. Some people complain that the Bobcats arent winning,
    but at the same time some fail to see that the Bobcats has been a “huge financial plus”
    not only for Charlotte, but for North and South Carolina as well !!
    Thanks Mike for giving so many of us here in the Carolinas the opportunity to experience
    live nba games.
    Mike, you have given so much of yourself to the fans and others and still continue to give.
    Thanks Micheal James Jordan, and my God bless you and all of your loved ones.
    Sincerely,
    MsBeverly J. Black from Charlotte/Monroe NC

    Happy Birthday Michael Jeffrey Jordan. You are and forever will be the greatest Basketball player ever. Thank you for so many great years of hard work and dedication, as well as for making the NBA what it is today. You are a true role model in my eyes. If I were asked to use one word to sum up Michael Jordan, it would be “Greatness”.

  29. sanjay says:

    mj is the king of kings let there be no doubt! He can still come bank and get 20 period! kobe to some extent and lebron are the only 2 guys that could come close to him in terms of dominance and skill! But mj had grace and fluency like none ever had!
    Happy birthday 50! Cant believe he is 50!

    Happy Birthday Michael Jordon the best of all time.

  31. Michal Speczik says:

    Wish you all the best Mr. Jordan. Hope to meet you some day….not just in dreams…

  32. lol says:

    Jordan’s not overrated, but Kobe is. Player who got his first Finals MVP at 30, can’t be the closest to MJ.

  33. Myname says:

    Happy B-day the greatest of all time basketball player!!! Wish i could shake the hand and congratulate!!!

    happy B-DAY ,

    + a million more from the rest of the world

  36. GangstaP says:

    MJ is overrated.

    • mark says:

      See the 1998 all star game on you tube and behold how MJ teaches a youngster with a purple uniform.

    • agon says:

      GangstaP, look at his stats for his carrer, his 6 rings, 10 scoring titles and many more and youre gonna sit there and call him overrated! man you needa check yourself cause your just an idiot if you think otherwise

    • HareJordan says:

      GangstaP is not even rated

      • bigwes95 says:

        i don’t think he means that MJ isn’t one of the best ever, but maybe that he isn’t “so far above everyone else that no one even comes close” i personally don’t think that MJ is the greatest, but i put him at second. no one is the clear-cut greatest of all time. and if you truly believe some one is clearly the best of all time, then it’s most likely because MJ is smothered in your face with his logo everywhere and he’s the most popular basketball player ever. i mean kids in Africa were getting Jordans! no one in the history of the nba is/was that publicized. it’s like mcdonlds to me: you have something that is just so huge and well known, that a lot of pther people don’t consider any other fast foods good. i see it as people think that just because someone/something is so popular, that is must be the best. but mcdonalds doesn’t have the best food or service, same as michael doesn’t have the best resume ever. but they’re shoved in people’s face so much that they don’t consider everyone else.
