NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan married model Yvette Prieto in Palm Beach on Saturday, reports the Miami Herald.  

It is Jordan’s second marriage. Jordan, currently the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, was married for 17 years before divorcing in 2006 and the couple have three grown children together.

More from the Miami Herald:

Jordan, 50, and Prieto, 35, were married before about 500 guests at the Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, a massive Gothic revival building in the heart of the ritzy island.

Among the dozens of relatives, friends and business associates of Jordan’s were other aging basketball stars, including former New York Knicks big man Patrick Ewing and former Chicago Bulls Scottie Pippen, Ron Harper and Toni Kukoc as well as NBA TV announcer Ahmad Rashad.

I am not sure why so MANY people are concerned that this woman has been around the block!!!!!!!  I would hope so - if not she has a serious personality disorder!!!!!!!!! I MUCH prefer someone that has had a little training in the finer points of satisfying her man!!!!!  I'd like to shake a few of her old boyfriends hands!!  Good job and thank you - I'll take it from here!!!!

OK - so when is the separation - the divorce and her getting millions?????  Yo - Mike - call Lebran James - and ask for some relationship advice!!!!   LIVE WITH HER - have a few kids - AND THEN marry her!!!!!!!  If she is in it for life - she won't mind!!!  If she minds - one word - NEXT!!!!!!!

I'm happy for him.  They  have been together, I think, six years and should know what each wants after all that time.  I think she is a living doll and he is very very handsome.  Great couple.   Go Michael!   Congrats!

I think when it time to exchanging wedding vows, Jordan did a one hour tribute to himself in which he explained why he is the greatest basketball player there ever was.......and Nike made the wedding dress for her.

Michael Jordan is a class guy. I wish him all the best in his marriage. I'm really disappointed to read some of the classless remarks here. Most of those people couldn't carry MJ's jock on the best day of their lives.

 Congratulations Mike , many happy years ahead.

Team player Tom Brady got a better looking supermodel trophy wife, Gisele Bundchen, than MJ team owner.

All you haters should remember that they've dated since 2008.  I'm pretty sure if MJ didn't want to get married, he wouldn't.  Believe it or not, he's a human being capable of loving somebody.

 @BobbySood You obviously are one of those people who have no clue about what a REAL relationship is about.  Go get that cheerleader working in McDonald's, Bobby.  She's the only one who will think you have any kind of brain at all.  The rest of us know better.

 @Joseph Hull That's right, all black men who make over $45,000 a year (aka, "Good Black Men") should be with annoying, unattractive black women (aka, "Strong Black Women") and be happy for it. Otherwise, they're ignorant.

 @AsherSung  @R,A Asher, be careful who you mouth off to.  You just don't know.  You think you have the answers, and that shows your naivete.  Don't play with the person who could embarrass you.

 @BobbySood  @pandah462  @isa.jallow1 It's not starting a sentence and it's not a formal name.  I think teaching particle physics to a child would be easier than teaching you about, well, anything.  Not only are you an idiot, but you're an arrogant idiot to boot.  That's the worst kind of idiot.

 @pandah462  @BobbySood Pandah, I sooooo much want to defend you to Bobby, but you are doing quite well on your own.  I'm gonna sit back and watch you fillet this boy.  I'm right behind you.

 @BobbySood BoobySod, I am indeed a guy.  Having dated women of legal age, which you seem to be implying that you're ok with them being below that age, I can say that 18 would be fun.  However, he married this one.  Marrying an 18-year old means he'd have a late-teens headcase to babysit.  You're hopefully not in a position in which you make important decisions.
