Even His Airness Michael Jordan had a serious injury scare, breaking his foot early in his second season in the league. Returning for the final 15 games of the regular season, MJ responded in the most Jordan way possible when they were matched up with an historically-great Celtics team in the playoffs: he scored 49, then 63 points in the first two games of the series. He returned to form the following season, never again having another major injury problem and going on to have what some might call a pretty solid career.
