He may always have the distinction and label of having the same name as a certain 6 time NBA champion from the Chicago Bulls, but the Beko BBL will always have sweet memories of Michael Hakim Jordan (183-PG-77, agency: Interperformances, college: Pennsylvania) be it being his breathtaking buzzer beater win against the LTi Giessen 46ers as he was in full swing as a fireman saving the Phoenix Hagen season, saving Giessen from going down in his last professional year in 2010-2011, his duels with Skyliner Pascal Roller on the court in the 2005 BBL playoffs, or In Italy a year later, his powerful halftime Tirade in Frankfurt which would have given Bobby Knight goose bumps in a Phoenix Hagen blow out loss which was featured in the German documentary Phoenix in der Asche, or just his trade mark wide gergarious smile which had stiff competition from his teammates and friends Immanuel Mcelroy and Titus Ivory, but at the end of the day he had the bigger melt factor. Last season, Michael Hakim Jordan sat out the season not getting the desired offer that he wanted and now it has been announced that the Philadelphia native will hang up his sneakers to start a career in coaching. Jordan will be an assistant coach for friend Matthew Langel at Colgate who played briefly in Germany for MBC and Brandt Hagen who was a teammate with him in the NCAA with Pennsylvania. "Having known Michael as a teammate and friend for over 17 years, I am thrilled to have him, Katie, and their daughter Eva join our Colgate Basketball family,' said Langel. 'Michael's experiences as a student-athlete, as well as a successful college and professional player will provide invaluable perspective that I know will help our current and future student-athletes. I am confident that his loyalty, dedication to hard work, and fierce competitive nature will make him a great college basketball coach", stressed Colgate Raiders head coach Matt Langel


As a player He could do it all! He understood the game and knew how it was played. When asked to get teammates involved he would reduce his scoring output and add to his assist total. When asked to score, he could and would, without forcing the issue. At 183 cm he was extremely quick on his feet and combined with his fearless attitude and he could drive an oponent crazy defending him full court, half court, over and through picks, or away from the ball. Of course his quickness was an asset on the offensive end also. But its combined with his experience and poise that made him so effective. He was a leader on the court who could score in many ways and had all the skills to make the players around him look better. He was a motivator, organizer, and director who got his teammates ready to play hard. He was extremely dangerous in the transition phase almost always making the right decision. He could go coast to coast, pull up for the shot, or find the right guy running the lanes. In the half court set, he also had many options to choose from. He was an excellent pick and roll player and was able to turn the corner and take it to the hole. When the defense cheated or switched he could hit the three or take a bigger guy one-on-one. In addition to his skills on both ends of the floor he always had the necessary desire and drive to win every game. He played with an intensity that fuels his teammates and the crowd alike. On the court Michael Hakim Jordan was the complete package at his position. With all these things in his aresenal, he slowly developed in the NCAA and took it to the next level as a professional and he was able to have avery healthy and successful basketball career. Jordan started his basketball career at Pennsylvania (NCAA) and was Ivy League Champion and Ivy Player of the Year in his senior year in 2000. In 2000, he started his professional basketball career and already experienced a lot as a rookie starting with Besancon (France-ProA) was briefly with the Boston Celtics (NBA) and then was signed by Trenton Shooting Stars (IBL). After stints in Poland and Spain in 2001-2002, Jordan finally landed in Germany and played for TSV Quakenbruck. He helped lead the team to the Beko BBL in 2003 averaging 21.1 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 6.9 apg. He then helped the Artland Dragons become a fixture in the top German league and already in his first season showed that he could play with the best as he averaged 17ppg, 4.0rpg, 6.9apg, 1.1spg, 3.4bpg. In the 2005-2006 season, he had to leave the club on account of a scuffle with Marko Bulic. He played shortly with BK Ventspil, but then was picked up by RheinEnergie Koln as he teamed up with Immanuel Mcelroy and NBA player Marcin Gortat helping them win the Beko BBL title. Jordan had made a name of himself by now and was very interesting for other teams. He got the chance to play in Italy for Cantu. In Italy, he played against many of the top players in Europe and held his own leading the league in assists averaging 13.8ppg, 2.7rpg, Assists-1 (5.2apg), 2.0spg, 2FGP: 54.6%, 3PT: 36.1%, FT: 74.0%. He was an allstar in the Italian league. The next season 2007-2008, he continued to make further basketball experiences in Europe playing for TEC Spirou Charleroi (Belgium-D1) and PAOK Marfin Thessaloniki (Greece). In his last three seasons, he returned back to Germany and played for the Brose Baskets Bamberg, Phoenix Hagen, Mitteldeutscher BC and the LTi Giessen 46ers. Jordan may have been a pest as a player, but was loved by the fans. Eurobasket.com wishes Michael Jordan all the best for his future as a coach. Who knows one might see Jordan back in Germany one day.
