The greatest basketball player who donned the no. 12 jersey. Guess who?
Yes, that’s Michael Jordan. His Airness donned No. 12 when his more famous jersey was stolen before a Feb. 14, 1990, game at Orlando. Sam Vincent happily allowed MJ to borrow his threads for one game. Michael Jordan wore No. 12 in this 1990 Valentine’s Day game against Orlando. He scored 49 points in a 135-129 loss.
