HOUSTON (AP) - Michael Jordan turned 50 on Sunday, giving this year's All-Stars a chance to reflect on his illustrious career and how much he still means to the sport.
In a weekend filled with the NBA's greatest players, Jordan was the topic no one could stop talking about. Though he hasn't played since the 2002-03 season, Jordan's influence still permeates the league and its players.
Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade says, ``everything he did was groundbreaking.''
Jordan won six titles and picked up five MVP awards during a career spent mostly with the Bulls that began in 1984.
Jordan was in Houston this weekend, and celebrated his birthday early with a private bash on Friday at the Museum of Fine Arts with guests including LeBron James and Kobe Bryant.
