    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.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Jordan

    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?
