Following the shocking murder of his father, Jordan decided to retire from the NBA in 1993. But he added to his fortune just months later when he signed a contract with a minor league baseball team. His second sporting career lasted just a year, and in March 1995 he returned to the NBA.

And Jordan proved to be just as dominant during his second stint in the NBA. By 1998 he’d won his sixth NBA title with the Bulls, as well as a record-breaking sixth Finals MVP. Although he retired again in 1999, Jordan was back in the NBA a year later. However, this time it was as the president and co-owner of the Washington Wizards.
