Bulls star and NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan was named the Charlotte Business Journal’s Business Person of the Year, reports The Associated Press.

Jordan began to tear up during a nine-minute speech in which he called the award “different” from all the awards he won as a player.

The Charlotte Business Journal passed along the photo of Jordan in tears.

Jordan became emotional saying, I’ve been criticized in a lot of different areas from a business standpoint, but I take pride in the ideas and concepts and views that come out of this organization to build the type of basketball program… that the city of Charlotte can be proud of. Jordan, who took over as the Hornets primary owner in 2010, says he’s committed to the organization long term and plans on winning multiple championships.
