Michael Jordan’s 50th Birthday Party (Video) Micheal Jordan throws a big birthday party annually during All-Star weekend. It’s one of the most coveted invites. On Friday at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, celebs and pro athletes turned out to wish the NBA champ a happy 50th. (His birthday is Sunday.) Some of the many attendees included LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Jordan’s son Jeffrey Jordan, Lala and Carmelo Anthony, Scottie Pippen and MC Lyte, who dj’ed the event. We heard Beyonce and Jay-Z attended the party and left through the museum’s back exit, as did Jordan himself. They later showed up at a Heights club for an after party. For those who weren’t invited social media can give you an inside glimpse of the party without actually being there.
