Thursday, February 17 is the 59th birthday of Michael Jordan, perhaps the greatest NBA player of all time.

To celebrate, fans took to Twitter to greet Jordan with praise.

From heartfelt to humorous, there were many different ways people showed their love for Her Airness.

Whether it’s his birthday or not, talking about Jordan always leads to talking about his historical records and stats and provides an opportunity to reflect on how important he was not only to the NBA, but also to professional sport as a whole.

The goat

Twitter users were quick to highlight MJ’s phenomenal career, pointing out the ridiculous numbers he posted during his time in the NBA.

A user showed how Jordan scored killer numbers in a single season.

Other people pointed out that even though Jordan is 59, he could still beat just about anyone in a one-on-one ball game.

Others wanted to shower Jordan with praise because of the impact he had on them.

It’s true that many, many basketball fans got into the game because of Jordan and how he changed the sport and the way we look at it.

People were willing to sacrifice a lot – including their sleep – to witness history in the making during Jordan’s time in the league.

Meanwhile, other Twitter fans just wanted to bask in the glory of Jordan’s skills.

Images have popped up all over Twitter showing off Jordan’s ridiculous power and suave physical ability.

All these years later, few other players have replicated the way he was able to navigate through the air, dunk and shoot.

It’s really true when people say there never was and never will be anyone else like MJ.
