Michael Jordan is giving back to Charlotte, as the owner of the Hornets. The NBA legend is opening a second medical clinic in Charlotte, North Carolina, per CNN.
Jordan made a commitment of $7 million to open the first clinic just a year ago. Now, during a global pandemic, the Chicago Bulls legend decided to offer a helping hand.
“To see how this has evolved over the last year is to gratifying. It makes me want to continue doing more so that we can keep answering the bell when the bell is ringing,” Michael Jordan said in a video about the clinic’s opening this week.
“When we came together to mark the first clinic’s opening last fall, no one could have predicted we would be facing a global pandemic just five months later. I’m so proud of the positive impact our clinic has had on the community so far, especially during COVID-19.”
Jordan’s first clinic was used as a COVID-19 screening and testing site earlier this year. Despite his unbelievable basketball career, MJ is proving that he is a legend off the court too.
Jordan won six championships and six Finals MVPs with the Chicago Bulls in the ’90s without ever losing in the Finals. He also won five regular-season MVP awards.
