Sports Illustrated Honors Michael Jordan With His 50th Cover For His 50th Birthday

Perhaps, you haven’t heard by now. Michael Jordan turns the ripe young age of 50 on this Sunday, February 17. Outlets across the world have been paying homage to the Jordan with no end in sight. But, one of the more unique and visually pleasing comes in the form of Sports Illustrated‘s new cover.

With pillars of print media continually going the digital-only route, creations like this shouldn’t be taken for granted. If you call yourself a Jordan fan, and wait in line for God knows how many hours for his shoes, forking over a few dollars to have this collector’s item is a no-brainer.

And since we’re already on the subject, here’s SportsCenter’s profile on MJ and the lasting impact his footwear made on pop culture, Gotta Be The Shoes, which originally aired this past Sunday.
