|Michael Jordan Applies for FL Marriage License
|WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Basketball legend Michael Jordan appears ready to get married again.
The former NBA star and Charlotte Bobcats owner appeared at the main Palm Beach County courthouse Thursday morning to apply for a marriage license, according to Kathy Burstein, a spokeswoman for the clerk's office. Applicants must apply in person and a license is good for 60 days. The identity of the bride-to-be was not immediately announced.

It will be the second marriage for No. 23. He married Juanita Vanoy in September 1989, and they divorced in 2006. They have two sons, Jeffrey Michael and Marcus James, and a daughter, Jasmine.
