August 23, 2021 - After Magic Johnson arrived last summer, arguably the greatest basketball player of all time has arrived in the Dalmatian capital. A look at Michael Jordan in Split. 

NBA legend and Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan (58) arrived in Split on Sunday night. Arguably the greatest basketball player of all time then set off in one of the three vans that met him on the West Coast Riva in Split, where the O'Pari yacht awaited Jordan and his group.

O'Pari was built in 2020, and is 95 meters long, and has six decks. Its weekly rent will set you back around one million euros.

As expected, Jordan's arrival immediately caused euphoria in the city. Last year, Magic Johnson visited Split, and before him, many other great international athletes were seen, but no one quite as big as Michael Jordan, who is holidaying on the luxury yacht in the company of his wife, Yvette Prieto.

It is likely that Jordan will meet Toni Kukoč in Split, his former Bulls teammate, but also one of his favorite partners on the golf course.

They may also consider the induction protocol to the Basketball Hall of Fame. After it was announced in May that Toni Kukoč would be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Illinois, it was announced that one of the greatest basketball legends to live would introduce the Croatian basketballer to the Hall of Fame.

Namely, Kukoč will be presented by Michael Jordan, his Chicago Bulls teammate, and Jerry Reinsdorf, longtime owner of the Bulls. The three will join each other on stage during the ceremony on September 11, 2021, at the MassMutual Center. 

Along with Kukoč, who owns three NBA rings, the 2021 class includes Val Ackerman, Rick Adelman, Chris Bosh, Bob Dandridge, Cotton Fitzsimmons, Howard Garfinkel, Yolanda Griffith, Lauren Jackson, Clarence Jenkins, Pearl Moore, Paul Pierce, Bill Russell, Ben Wallace, Chris Webber, and Jay Wright.
