Michael Jordan is one of the greatest athletes we have ever seen in the world of sports. Twenty five years back, March 19 marked a special day for basketball fans as his “Airness” returned to the court after a 17-month hiatus.

Jordan had came officially out of retirement just a day earlier with his historic “I’m Back” announcement. The next day, he played his first NBA game for Chicago since Game 6 of the 1993 Finals against Phoenix.

In Indiana’s home court against the Pacers, Jordan officially returned, scoring 19 points along with 6 rebounds and 6 assists in a contest that became the most watched regular season game in NBA history.

The Pacers downed the Bulls in overtime 103-96, but the standout part of the “battle” was Michael Jordan’s return to action.
