NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan has been off the court for years; now, he's off the market.

The sports star is getting married again, his publicist Estee R. Portnoy confirmed to CNN on Thursday. Jordan and longtime girlfriend, Yvette Prieto, got engaged on Christmas Day, CNN affiliate WCNC reported.

The couple has been seen at various high-profile public events in recent years, including the Kentucky Derby, golf outings and vacations.

Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to six championships -- two three-peats -- in the 1990s, before finishing his career with the Washington Wizards in 2003. He retired twice -- the first time to play baseball, the second time to be with his family.

Jordan and then-wife Juanita divorced in 2006 after 17 years of marriage. In 2007, Forbes Magazine listed Jordan's divorce as the costliest in celebrity history with a severance package exceeding $150 million.

Viewed widely as the world's greatest basketball player, Jordan, 48, today is a cigar-chomping golfer and socialite. In 2010, he became the first former player to be a majority owner of an NBA team, buying the Charlotte Bobcats.

Instead of a basketball wife, Prieto enters the engagement largely as a golf wife, judging from her public appearances. In 2009, during opening ceremonies for the Presidents Cup, she was seen alongside Nicki Stricker, the wife of PGA Tour star Steve Stricker, and Elin Nordegren, then-wife of Tiger Woods.

Since his hoops days, Jordan has continued lucrative endorsement deals with corporate giants such as Coca-Cola, Hanes and Nike, which houses a subsidiary with his namesake, Jordan Brand.

Jordan's name has been in the news recently. His new Air Jordans caused a shopping frenzy around Christmas. Several incidents of violence were reported near shoe stores that sold the expensive sneakers.

A wedding date for Jordan and Prieto has not been announced.

I mean, if he doesn't get a pre-nup, that is on him. I don't understand why anyone with MILLIONS of dollars wouldn't get a pre-nup. If she is offended, let her offended *** get her crap and get out. You are the one who earned that cash.

He did the first time around so he will again

So I can't tell because of phone and it makes the article look like ****, but is Jordan following the divine rule of half your age plus seven?

Good for MJ.

I don't particularly see the major appeal (especially for a millionaire) but at least she is a step-up from Juanita.

its funny you say that because that IS technically the meaning of life. meaning of life = reproduce. we have dicks that are made to reproduce as many times as you can.

This is unacceptable. He is no longer the best basketball player ever. He votes against the Paul trade and now this? David Stern should be quick to veto this.

no one would have the right to be offended in that situation.

oh she is way hot. But yeah, a woman needs to understand that if you marry a man who has made tens or hundreds of millions, he has the right to protect himself. If you love him, you would sign it. He is only trying to protect himself should something happen. Not that he thinks it will, he is simply protecting his life's earnings, that HE MADE, not you.

C'mon, Mike, first your ego gets your father killed, then you ruin an NBA franchise, and now you're getting married to this? She's been run through more times than the Broncos defense.

Knowing Michael, he'd still charge her full markup. He's one cutthroat mother f --er.

If I were him I wouldn't even get married if he's not going to have her sign a prenup...

Just because he doesn't get married doesn't mean they can't be in a relationship, live together, and all that (like they've probably been doing)...

With that said though...She most def would get it with the quickness lol

Too many "Get a prenups" posts

Not enough "nice job she's ridiculously hot" posts.

I get it, he's MJ, but we've seen some top athletes with some hideous women. Nice that the GOAT wouldn't disappoint.
