Michael Jordan Attends The Star-Studded Oprah Winfrey Show Finale [Photos]

In the 80’s and early 90’s, two people came to mind when I thought of Chicago. Michael Jordan and Oprah Winfrey. Tuesday night Oprah filmed her final show at the United Center (yes the show that caused the Eastern conference finals to start a day early.)

The event was star-studded filled with Hollywood notables like Tom Cruise, Will & Jada Smith, Madonna, Jamie Foxx, Maya Angelou, Stevie Wonder, Beyonce and bunch more.

One of several touching moments was when the the Chicago Bulls theme music started and the announcer began with “And now…” of course Hall of Famer Michael Jordan stepped on to the stage. He offered these words to Oprah:

“We came into Chicago at the same time … You’ve done wonderfully. I know you’ve been fan of basketball. I’ve been fan of yours.”

Nice. Also in attendance, Larsa Pippen, Jeanine Howard (wife of Heat player, Juwan Howard) and Adrienne Williams-Bosh.
