After briefly retiring from the NBA following the 1993 season, Michael Jordan returned to the game he loved 21 months later. Without any fanfare, he released a statement through his agent that simply stated on March 18, 1995. With 17 games remaining in the season, Jordan made his return against the Indiana Pacers on March 19, 1995, wearing the number #45 jersey (the same number he had worn while playing baseball). Jordan scored 18 points, had 6 rebounds, and 6 assists. The Bulls won 13 of the 17 regular season games in which MJ played. They earned the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. After defeating the Charlotte Hornets in four games, the Bulls would face the Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference Semifinal. After a tough loss in game one, Michael Jordan decided to return to his legendary number #23 jersey number against the wishes of the NBA. Number changes are not allowed midseason or in this case mid-series. The Bulls would go on to lose the series in six games. This famous number #45 Mitchell & Ness jersey was only worn by Jordan in 22 NBA games, but it has an iconic history that will live on forever.
