It was 2009 when Michael Jordan took the stage at his Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony. It was there he offered a rare display of emotion. One of the greatest competitors in sports history moved to tears.

That moment was captured on video, but also in a photograph from the Associated Press. Six years after it was snapped, this photograph has taken on a life of its own.
