    What is the context?

    Note the correct spelling of 'punctuation'.

    What is the context? You don't know who Michael Jordan is?

    This would be how a player is announced when taking the court for a game. I don't think punctuation is a big deal here. It's probably more like:

    "At guard...
    Number 23...
    From North Carolina...
    Miiiiiiichaaaaaael!!
    Jooooooooordaaaaaaan!!!!!!"

    Basketball. He was the most recognized athlete in the US for most of the 1980s and 90s.

    He led his team to the NBA championship three times in a row (a "threepeat") two different times.

    What if I really had to punctuate it for writing purposes? Comma, period, or semi-colon?

    Comma will work.
