There can’t be too many basketball fans in this world who don’t know who Michael Jordan is. Despite the recent accomplishments of LeBron James, Jordan is still widely viewed by many as the GOAT of basketball. This is largely due to the fact that he won 6 NBA titles over 7 years and never lost in the Finals.
LeBron fans defend their star by claiming that he has lasted much longer than Jordan ever did in the NBA. Moreover, he is also playing at a higher level now than MJ did during this stage of his career. James’ health and his focus on nutrition have certainly helped him achieve in that domain. On the other hand, the Chicago Bulls legend hasn’t been very healthy in comparison and even seems to have yellow eyes in current times.
This is quite a rare medical condition, especially since the yellowness hasn’t really faded over the years. It also begs the question as to what Jordan is suffering from and why things haven’t gotten better yet.
Michael Jordan is reported to have Conjunctival Melanosis
NBA fans who have been actively following Jordan will know that his eyes weren’t always yellow. They looked quite normal during his time in the league. However, they have drastically changed over the past couple of decades and seem to be growing more yellow. Having yellow eyes is certainly not a good sign and could speak to several underlying health problems.

Many have theorized that Jordan is suffering from Jaundice, a disease that affects the liver and creates excessive waste to accumulate in the body. This results in the sick person’s eyes or skin turning yellow. Others have opined that graver problems such as Hepatitis or even Cancer could be in play.
Most of these theories were debunked after the truth was revealed. We have now found out that Michael Jordan is suffering from a Pigmented Lesion. To those who do not know, these are areas of abnormal coloration usually caused by some form of malignant tumor.

Jordan is suffering from Conjuntical Melanosis, or more specifically, Racial Melanosis, a health situation usually found in people with dark skin. In any case, we hope he is seeking treatment and now allowing his problem to get out of hand.
