Mike Jordan, as he was known then, at Five-Star Basketball Camp in the summer of 1980.

Michael Jordan went on the record and said Five-Star "changed how I felt about basketball and my future. It was the turning point of my life." 

Before becoming the G.O.A.T., Jordan burst into the national consciousness during the summer of '80 at Five-Star Basketball Camp. He was a rising senior at the time. Largely undiscovered. One week at Five-Star changed that forever.
