SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- The Basketball Hall of Fame has opened a Michael Jordan exhibit before his enshrinement next month.

The display features items from Jordan's NBA career and from his time at North Carolina and with the 1992 Olympic Dream Team. There is also a batting glove from Jordan's brief foray into baseball.

The exhibit is made possible in part by a $250,000 donation from Nike and features several pair of the superstar's Air Jordan shoes.

Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA titles and now runs basketball operations for the Charlotte Bobcats. He will enter the Hall of Fame on Sept. 11 with former NBA stars David Robinson and John Stockton and coaches Jerry Sloan and C. Vivian Stringer.
