Michael Jordan who many regards as NBA's greatest all-time player having won six titles with the Chicago Bulls has made a decision to put a smile on the faces of the less privileged in Charlotte, North Carolina by building a clinic for them.

The clinic's opening in west Charlotte came two years after the 56-year-old donated $7 million to Novant Health to build two facilities, the second of which has not yet opened.

On Thursday, an emotional Jordan opened the first of two Charlotte medical clinics funded by him and his family.

Jordan since becoming the majority owner of the Hornets in 2010 has ramped up his charitable giving, the Charlotte Observer added.

"I've gone off and made my life in IL and other places", Jordan said, referring to his NBA Hall of Fame years with the Chicago Bulls. An emotional Jordan, while inaugurating the Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinic, told the people in attendance that it was a matter of pride that he could support and provide for the community that supported him over the years.

Michael Jordan continued his philanthropic endeavors in Charlotte with the first of two medical clinics.

"I believe that your ZIP code or neighborhood should not determine the quality of your health care - or whether or not you can even get care at all", Jordan said in a statement.

'Today we celebrated the grand opening of the Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinic, ' the center said on social media. "I stand here before you as a proud parent, son, obviously a member of this community".

The clinic, which is located in the urban area where a part of the community with low income resides, will provide medical access to primary and preventive care, including those who do not have medical insurance or that they own is not sufficient to meet their health needs.

"We've set the blueprint, that is going to outlive us all", said Jordan said, a Basketball Hall of Fame inductee.
