Legendary NBA Michael Jordan begins vacation in dreamy Italy with his wife and twin daughters

Basketball icon Michael Jordan, renowned for his illustrious career and six NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls from 1991 to 1998, has been sighted in Italy relishing a well-deserved vacation alongside his wife, Yvette Prieto, and their twin daughters. The 60-year-old legend is currently immersing himself in quality family time on the picturesque island of Sicily.Jordan was seen sporting Nike trainers and a luxury Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch

Jordan, sporting an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore watch worth around $40,000, was seen heading out to a luxury yacht alongside Yvette and their identical twin daughters Ysabel and Victoria.

Jordan’s feats on the court made him one of the most successful and recognisable athletes on the planet but these days the NBA icon keeps a low profile.

He and Yvette met in a Miami nightclub in 2008, and Jordan proposed to the Cuban-born model three years later. They married back in 2013 and a year later they welcomed their daughters, now nine.

Last month, MJ and Prieto, 44, headed out on a rare date night in Nashville to celebrate the start of the NASCAR Ally 400 race weekend.

Reports have emerged which claim MJ is selling his majority stake in the Charlotte Hornets

In recent weeks, Jordan has been in the headlines amid reports he is selling his majority stake in the Charlotte Hornets for an eye-watering $3BILLION, after 13 years as the owner of the NBA team.

Only recently, they picked Brandon Miller as No 2 overall in the 2023 Draft, and while MJ is said to be keen to relinquish overall control, he is reported to be keeping a minority stake in the team.

Jordan purchased a minority stake the Hornets back in 2006, but became the majority owner of the team in 2010.

Jordan’s tenure with the Hornets has been fraught with poor results, unlucky deals, and bad management – including by Jordan himself.

Since his first full season of majority ownership in 2010-11, the Charlotte Hornets have put up a combined record of 423-600 – with only three winning seasons.

In that time, they made only two playoff appearances in 2014 and in 2016 – both ending in the first round through losses to the Miami Heat.

Since that last playoff appearance in 2016, the Hornets never finished higher than ninth in the Eastern Conference.

It all culminated in last season with a 27-55 record – seeing Charlotte finish 14th in the conference and last in their own division.
