Jordan - Wizards

Recently retired basketball marvel Michael Jordan will join the Washington Wizards as part owner and head of operations. But Jordan won't be playing for the Wizards. NBA rules prohibit player-owners.

Playing for Keeps; Michael Jordan and the World That He Made, by David Halberstam, is published by Random House, February 1999.
