One last ride?

Michael Jordan Coming Out Of Retirement

     I thought it was a joke when I heard it on the radio this morning.  Michael Jordan playing in the NBA again?  What is he, 50?  (47, actually.  I looked)  A publicity stunt to coincide with his purchase of the Charlotte Bobcats?  But no, after Googling the subject in several forms, it looks like his Airness is actually going to attempt a comeback next month with the Bobcats. 

     And why not?  George Foreman knocked out Michael Moorer at 45 to win Boxing’s Heavyweight Championship.  You think back to his 2001 comeback with the Washington Wizards;  he may not have been the Michael Jordan of old, but he was still an all star player.  Can he do it again at 47?  And should he?

     Again, why not?  This is Michael Jordan.  All due respect to Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, but Michael Jordan made the NBA what it is.  This league was built on his back.  If he wants to do this, he should have every right.  If there has ever been a man that a sport owed something to, it’s Michael Jordan.  If he wants to lace them up for one last run, then he should.  Ratings should be spectacular, if nothing else.

      Don’t expect much.  At 47, we wont be seeing any 50 point games.  But wouldn’t it be cool, just one last time, to see number 23 fly?  Take of,  M.J.  As the greatest to ever step onto a court, it’s still your show.

    WHAT??? Mike needs to stop. He managed to escape his stint with the Wizards with most of his career averages still in tact…another run will do nothing more than make the Bobcats offense more stagnant (trying to get him the ball) and tarnish his stats (and boost ratings but thats not important lol). I love MJ but this is getting out of control. Where did you find this info?

    Are you sure about this? A couple of other articles of your I have read have been lies to get views. I may have to do some research and get back to you.

    I agree on one thing though, it would be great to see.
