Since the start of the basketball season, Stacey Freyer, a sophomore at Ohio State University and Jennifer Hanson, a senior out of Georgetown University, have been rooting for their teams to reach the national championship. They never dreamed that days before, they would be the ones to actually make the big shot. Today, Freyer and Hanson made history when each successfully hit the world's longest basketball shot. Freyer and Hanson each hit a 100 foot hoop target with a regulation basketball...from the gondola of the Goodyear blimp, 500 feet above the goal, winning the Goodyear Get There Blimp Shot Contest. A total of four contestants representing each school in the Mens Division I college basketball semifinals participated in the contest. I thought it looked makeable, said Freyer. When I shot it, we were way past the target, but it looked like it started out dead on. When it was good, we all started cheering. Everyone was excited even the pilots. Hanson said, I thought I missed it by a mile. And then, while the ball was falling, it looked like it changed direction. I saw it hit that target and bounce up and then I knew I made it. I was surprised, but it was a good surprise. At first, when The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company informed Freyer and Hanson that they had been selected to participate in the Goodyear Get There Blimp Shot Contest, it seemed easy. Shoot a regulation size basketball through a giant hoop target measuring 100 feet across. Then nearly impossible make the shot from 500 feet away while flying in the Goodyear Blimp. For their amazing feats, both earned the Goodyear Get There prize package which includes travel, accommodations and tickets for two to attend one of the sporting events where the Goodyear blimp will provide aerial coverage over the next 12 months. In addition, video of Freyers and Hansons winning shots and the balls they used will be sent to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass. for display and historical purposes. Freyer and Hanson were part of a group of students representing each of the final four teams in the Mens Division I college basketball tournament, and they were the only ones to successfully make the once in a lifetime shot. Also participating were Chris Smith, a senior from South Lake Tahoe, California, for UCLA and Alex Perez, a senior from Miami, Florida for the University of Florida. Freyer, a sophomore from Woodville, Ohio, has served for the past two years in the Athletic Communications department as the student assistant covering the men's basketball team. The communications major, who dreamed of attending Ohio State since she was a young girl, has attended every home game this season in addition to witnessing the teams exciting victory in the Big 10 Championship. Hanson, a senior out of Turtle Lake, North Dakota, is a four-year cheerleader with Georgetown and she has been to every home mens basketball game this year. In addition to cheering for the men's basketball team, she also cheers for the football and womens basketball teams. The contest was conducted in support of Goodyears new advertising campaign, which is built upon the theme of Get There. Aided by the Goodyear blimp, one of the world's most familiar and popular corporate icons, the campaign features the blimp pilots who represent Goodyears eyes from above, looking ahead to help drivers find a better way to get there to their destinations. Additionally, as the exclusive aerial coverage provider for CBS broadcast of the 2007 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, Goodyear is providing views from above for more than 30 tournament games in eight cities across the country, including the Final Four and Championship. Not since the Olympic Games has Goodyear dedicated as many aerial assets over so many days to cover one event. Goodyears Get There campaign will be seen throughout the year in key magazines, online and during high profile sporting events and prime time programming. Goodyear is one of the worlds largest tire companies. The company manufactures tires, engineered rubber products and chemicals in more than 90 facilities in 28 countries around the world. Goodyear employs more than 75,000 people worldwide. For more information on Goodyears tires, go to www.goodyeartires.com.

Charles Wade Barkley (born February 20, 1963) is a retired American professional basketball player. Nicknamed "Sir Charles," for his aggressive and outspoken demeanor, and "The Round Mound of Rebound," for his unusual build and talent as a player, Barkley established himself as one of the National Basketball Association's most dominating power forwards. He was selected to both the All-NBA First Team and All-NBA Second Team five times and once named to the All-NBA Third Team. He earned eleven NBA All-Star Game appearances and was named the All-Star MVP in 1991. In 1993, he was voted the league's Most Valuable Player and during the NBA's 50th anniversary, named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History. He competed in the 1992 and 1996 Olympic games and won two gold medals as a member of the United States' Dream Team. In 2006, Barkley was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Barkley was popular with the fans and media, and made the NBA's All-Interview Team for each of his last 13 seasons in the league. He was frequently involved in on- and off-court fights and sometimes stirred national controversy, as in 1993 when he declared that sports figures should not be considered role models. Short for a power forward, he used tenacity and strength to become a dominant rebounder. He was a versatile player who could score, defend, rebound, and assist. In 2002, he retired as one of only four players in NBA history with 20,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 4,000 assists. Since retiring as a player, Barkley has had a successful career as a color commentator on basketball. He works with Turner Network Television (TNT) as a studio analyst for their coverage of NBA games. In addition, Barkley has written several books and has also shown an interest at the possibility of a career in politics.

Michael Jeffrey Jordan (born February 17, 1963) is a retired American professional basketball player and active businessman. His biography on the National Basketball Association (NBA) website states, "By acclamation, Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time."[1] Jordan was one of the most effectively marketed athletes of his generation and was instrumental in popularizing the NBA around the world in the 1980s and 1990s. After a stand-out career at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he led the Tar Heels to a National Championship in 1982, Jordan joined the NBA's Chicago Bulls in 1984. He quickly emerged as one of the stars of the league, entertaining crowds with his prolific scoring. His leaping ability, illustrated by performing slam dunks from the free throw line at Slam Dunk Contests, earned him the nicknames "Air Jordan" and "His Airness." He also gained a reputation as one of the best defensive players in basketball.[2] In 1991, he won his first NBA championship with the Bulls, and followed that achievement with titles in 1992 and 1993, securing a "three-peat." Though Jordan abruptly retired from basketball at the beginning of the 1993-94 NBA season to pursue a career in baseball, he rejoined the Bulls in 1995 and led them to three additional championships (1996, 1997, and 1998) as well as an NBA-record 72 regular-season wins in the 1995–96 season. Jordan retired for a second time in 1999, but he returned for two more NBA seasons in 2001 as a member of the Washington Wizards. Jordan's individual accolades and accomplishments include five MVP awards, ten All-NBA First Team designations, nine All-Defensive First Team honors, fourteen NBA All-Star Game appearances and three All-Star MVP awards, ten scoring titles, three steals titles, six NBA Finals MVP awards, and the 1988 NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award. He holds the NBA record for highest career regular season scoring average with 30.12 points per game, as well as averaging a record 33.4 points per game in the playoffs. In 1999, he was named the greatest North American athlete of the 20th century by ESPN, and was second to Babe Ruth on the Associated Press's list of athletes of the century. He was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame on April 6, 2009 and will be inducted in September 2009.[3] Jordan is also noted for his product endorsements. He fueled the success of Nike's Air Jordan sneakers, which were introduced in 1985 and remain popular today.[4] Jordan also starred in the 1996 feature film Space Jam. He is currently a part-owner and Managing Member of Basketball Operations of the Charlotte Bobcats in North Carolina.

michael jordan hall of fame induction New Delhi, Sept 12, 2009: Michael Jordan Hall of Fame speech was very emotional. The greatest basketball player of all time Michael Jackson became very emotional when he was given a very long standing ovation by a cheering crowd. It was a moment that made the legend emotional and for the next more than twenty minutes he thanked everyone. The occasion was his induction into the Hall of Fame. Everyone knew long before his induction was announced earlier this year that he will be inducted in it sooner than later. His soaring dunks, Nike commercials and "Air Jordan" nickname helped stamp him as one the most recognizable athletes around the world. He finished a 15-year career with the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards with 32,292 points — the third-highest total in league history, behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone. His final career average of 30.12 goes down as the best, just ahead of Wilt Chamberlain's 30.07. He has been eulogized not just by admirers but also his teammates as well. One of his teammates John Paxon says about him, "Simply the greatest to ever play the game of basketball. He is the one player that each young person in this league should emulate and aspire to become. His work ethic, drive, skill level and competitive spirit were unmatched”. Forty six year old Michael Jeffrey Jordan is an American icon, a retired American professional basketball player and active businessman. Jordan was one of the most effectively marketed athletes of his generation and was instrumental in popularizing the NBA around the world in the 1980s and 1990s.

He was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame on April 6, 2009 and was inducted on September 11, 2009. On the occasion Jordan thanked everyone who pushed him to greater heights: The coach at Laney High who picked Leroy Smith over him for the varsity team ("You made a mistake, dude," Jordan said). Buzz Peterson, his former roommate at North Carolina who was named high school state player of the year instead of him. His college coach, Dean Smith, who refused to name Jordan as a starter as a freshman before Sports Illustrated magazine put the other four Tar Heels starters on the cover in 1981 ("That burned me up," he said). He said, "The players win championships. Don't try to put the organization before the players because at the end of the day, the players have to go out and perform. You guys got to pay us". While speaking to his children he said, "You guys have had a heavy burden. I wouldn't want to be you guys," Jordan said with a laugh.

HollywoodCollectibles.Com where sports are always in season! HollywoodCollectibles.com Sports Memorabilia Video Series Presents: Magic Johnson, Los Angeles Lakers Point Guard Bill Russell Dream Team Fantasy Camp in Las Vegas. In 905 NBA games, Johnson scored 17,707 points, 6,559 rebounds, and 10,141 assists, translating to career averages of 19.5 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 11.2 assists per game. Johnson shares the single-game playoff record for assists (24), holds the Finals record for assists in a game (21), and has the most playoff assists (2,346). He holds the All-Star Game single-game record for assists (22), and the All-Star Game record for career assists (127). Johnson introduced a fast-paced style of basketball called "Showtime", described as a mix of "no-look passes off the fastbreak, pin-point alley-oops from halfcourt, spinning feeds and overhand bullets under the basket through triple teams." Fellow Lakers guard Michael Cooper said, "There have been times when has thrown passes and I wasn't sure where he was going. Then one of our guys catches the ball and scores, and I run back up the floor convinced that he must've thrown it through somebody." Johnson was exceptional because he played point guard despite being 6 ft 9 in (2.06 m), a size reserved normally for front-court players. He combined the size of a power forward, the one-on-one skills of a swingman, and the ball handling talent of a guard, making him one of the most dangerous triple-double threats of all time; his 138 triple-double games are second only to Oscar Robertson's 181. For his feats, Johnson was voted as one of the 50 Greatest Players of All Time by the NBA in 1996, and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2002. ESPN's SportsCentury ranked Johnson #17 in their "50 Greatest Athletes of the 20th Century" In 2006, ESPN.com rated Johnson the greatest point guard of all time, stating, "It could be argued that he's the one player in NBA history who was better than Michael Jordan. "Several of his achievements in individual games have also been named among the top moments in the NBA.
