HOUSTON – Michael Jordan turned 50 on Sunday, 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 said, “everything he did was groundbreaking.”

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

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