Roger Federer announces retirement, buys a basketball team with Michael Jordan on 1st April

Roger Federer and Michael Jordan are arguably the  two biggest sports stars from 1990 to today: beloved, revered by hordes  of crazy fans, they are considered to be among the greatest, if not the  greatest, in tennis and the NBA.

Today Federer and Jordan are  thinking of having a business together. Like? It would seem that the two  champions would like to buy a baskeball team in the USA, and even  rumors speak of an NBA team!   Michael, for his athletic and technical  qualities, was elected in 1999 the greatest North American athlete of  the twentieth century by the sports television channel ESPN.

The  fame acquired on the field made him a sports icon, to the point of  pushing Nike to dedicate a line of basketball shoes to him called Air  Jordan, introduced in 1984.  He was then chosen third in the 1984 NBA  Draft by the Chicago Bulls and quickly became one of the stars of the  league, helping to spread the NBA globally in the 1980s and 1990s.

In 1991 he won his first NBA title with the Bulls, then repeated with  two more successes in 1992 and 1993, winning a three-peat, after which  he retired to pursue a career in baseball. He returned to the Bulls in  1995 and led them to another three-peat victory (1996, 1997 and 1998).

He  retired a second time in 1999, then returned as a member of the  Washington Wizards from 2001 to 2003, and then retired permanently.   Individual honors include six Finals MVPs, ten Top Scorer titles (both  records), five Regular Season MVPs, ten All-NBA First Team and nine  All-Defensive First Team selections, fourteen NBA appearances All-Star  Game, three All-Star Game MVPs and an NBA Defensive Player of the Year  Award.

He holds NBA records for the highest point average in  regular season history (30.12 points per game) and in playoff history  (33.45 points per game).  He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial  Basketball Hall of Fame twice: in 2009 for his individual career and in  2010 as a member of the Dream Team.

He became a member of the FIBA  ​​Hall of Fame in 2015. On November 22, 2016, he was awarded the  Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United  States, by US President Barack Obama.  If you have read the article up to this point, you will realize that you were the victims of an April Fool!
