Michael Jordan

When Michael Jordan won the NBA Championship in 1994, he dedicated it to his father. James Jordan, Sr. was killed on July 23, 1993 after he pulled over to a rest stop to take a nap. Two men spotted the Lexus coupe and recognized the license plate “UNC0023” as the car purchased by the Chicago Bulls superstar. They shot the elder Jordan and stole his car along with the two championship rings that his son had given him. His body was found in a swamp a week and a half later.
