It could happen.

You know the stuff about how Michael Jordan's been working out? Working out hard? Playing hard against all the Chicago NBA guys (Antoine Walker, Michael Finley, etc.)

Well, from what I've heard -- and again, it's just a rumor -- Jordan is planning another return. Again.

But wait, it gets better.

The team he's planning on joining?

The Miami Heat.

(Think about that one for a second.)

I don't know how much truth to put to this rumor, but remember there was some noise earlier this year about MJ buying a piece of the Heat, a rumor that was quickly shot down by the Heat's owner. There's been contact. Now let's see what happens.

Jordan will be 42 years old next year. He's not going anywhere, except to the local YMCA.

Never believe anything Slam writes.

That said, I think Jordan COULD be somewhat useful finishing games, if you played him at the SF spot off the bench for 15-20 mins a game. If he can drop 50 at age 39, 13-15 ppg off the bench at age 42 isn't a stretch. But, with MJ's ego, that'd never happen.

Someone at RealGM said that he should play for the Pistons and I am happy to say that most of the Detroit faithfull there said they wouldn't have him. Not that it would happen anyway.


Honestly, even with MJ the Heat are still #3 in the East. Though I would love to see Tayshaun defend Jordan.

I seriously doubt Jordan will return.

Some sportswriter with nothing better to do wrote an article about Jordan playing games at (you're right Kstat) a gym somewhere and somehow translated that into Jordan thinking about coming back again.

If that's all it takes I'd say we'll be reading stories about him coming back for the next 15 years.

If true, this is amazingly pathetic. He, Malone, Payton, Zo, etc. should be ashamed of themselves for trying to ride Shaq's coattails to a championship. :shakehead: :thumbsdown:

Zo?

Zo?

Yeah. If the rumor's true and he comes back, he will find a way to go back to Miami. It was his team, they badly need help in a position he could fill...it just makes too much sense not to happen.

Jordan barely has a 30 point per game average on his career. I don't think he would do anything to jepoardize that.

Today's ESPN insider has an article about MJ coming back. That's 1/2 a step above SLAM I suppose.

Except ESPN has been caught taking information from other sources, ie: SLAM.

it would be funny if he did try. he'd get thrashed. he will 42 before too long. his quickness is gone and so is his leaping ability. if he went against any of the mid to upper level playes at the 3 spot- he would get abused and futher tarnish his legend.
i say there is about a 0% chance he comes back.

Michael Jordan at 42 is likely better than Reggie Miller at 39.

...And Reggie is starting.

MJ couldn't be anyworse than Reggie is right now.

I'm sure he cares. A 30 point per game average over a career is a pretty impressive feat. It sounds alot different than a 28 or 29 point avearge.

It's amazing to have an average of 30 your entire career. Shaq has never averaged 30 in a season.

He didn't seem to care much about the #1 career scoring average of all time.

Denver post 9-22-04
The loose talk around the league is Michael Jordan has been working out like a demon, testing the possibility of joining forces with Shaquille O'Neal in Miami, according to Nuggets GM Kiki Vandeweghe.

There is no F'ing way Jordan is going to come back.

If Jordan was caught working out with the Indiana Fever, there would be talk of MJ possibly teaming up with Tamica Catchings.

Its all just talk.
