|Career highlights and awards|
After starring at the Abington Friends School, Jordan moved on to a college basketball career at the University of Pennsylvania, where he was the 1999–2000 Ivy League Player of the Year as a senior. The 6'0" (1.83 m) point guard then went on to try out in semi-professional leagues such as the USBL, the IBL and the NRL. Prior the National Basketball Association's 2000-01 regular season, he tried out with the Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics but was unsuccessful in securing a contract with either. He has since played in countries such as Spain, Venezuela, Latvia, France, and more recently for the Artland Dragons Quakenbrück and RheinEnergie Köln in Germany. In 2006-07 season, he played in the Italian Serie A league for Pallacanestro Cantù. In 2007-08 he played for Spirou Charleroi and PAOK BC. During the latter part of the 2008-2009 season, Jordan rejoined the Koln 99ers of the Basketball Bundesliga. During the 2009-2010 season, he joined Phoenix Hagen also of the Basketball Bundesliga.
For most of his life he was known as Michael Jordan, but since he is not related to the more prominent American basketball player of the same name, and got tired of the constant comparisons, he included his second name to his title, thus he became also referred to as Michael-Hakim Jordan.
