10For a Game in 1990 He Wore #12

In all of sports, Jordan’s #23 has become so iconic that you see athletes choosing that number, despite playing a completely different sport. The number is synonymous with “His Airness,” but it is not the only number he wore during his career. It is common knowledge that he temporarily wore #45 after returning from playing baseball (this was due to his #23 being retired). These are not the only numbers he wore in his pro career, however, as in one game in 1990 he was forced to wear a nameless #12 jersey. This was on a road game against the Orlando Magic, and prior to the game someone had managed to get into the locker room and steal his #23 jersey. As it turns out, Jordan plays better when he is mad as he dropped 49 points that game, but the Magic would emerge victorious.
