On February 17th of this year (which is this Sunday), Michael Jordan will be celebrating his 50th birthday. As a result,Sports Illustrated is celebrating the occasion by placing Jordan on the cover of next week’s issue, which just so happens to be his 50th appearance on the magazine’s cover—as Sports Illustrated themselves have stated, “Funny how that works.”
The magazine is set to hit newsstands on February 18th, and while it may not be as sexy as the last Sports Illustrated cover we showed you, it is still one that any sports fan will want to check out.
Here it is:
Conveniently, the issue also features a look at all 50 of MJ’s cover appearances and a list of 50 reasons why we’ll never forget His Airness. So if you’re looking for a way to celebrate Jordan’s 50th, look no further.
