Just two weeks before the attacks of September 9, 2001 in the United States against the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, Michael Jordan announced the second return to the NBA and as a great of the sport he was not oblivious to one of the moments toughest in US history.
In the absence of a gesture, Jordan took two actions in solidarity to honor the victims of the 9/11 attacks that shocked the entire world. Michael returned to the NBA in the 2001-02 season as a player, co-owner and president of operations at the Washington Wizards.
Michael Jordan was going to earn a salary of $ 1 million dollars during the 2001-02 season, but he did not receive a single dollar because he decided to donate all the money to help the victims of the attacks on the World Trade Center during that tragic September 9. September 2001.
Corbin Mayo was a small Jordan fan who saw his father Robert die in the Twin Towers bombings. ‘Air’ learned the story of the 11-year-old fan and did not hesitate for a single moment to fulfill one of his dreams.
