Michael Jordan wears Bulls jersey #23

Wearing his usual number 23, Michael Jordan looks up during a pre-season basketball game at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on October 12, 1996. That was the year after Jordan ended his brief flirtation with a pro baseball career and returned to the NBA. Michael Jordan was born in 1963, so he turned 33 the year this photo was taken.
