Numerous Collegiate awards including ACC player of the Year (1984), and the Naismith College Player Award (1984)

Not to mention a defensive player of the year and numerous scoring championships.

Micheal came along at just the right time, and some consider him the savior of the game, he may have also saved a shoe company along the way.
