I had heard that he is coming back because he doesn't like the way the younger players are acting. Also he probably whats to prove he is still the best. Who will he play for?

If he comes back, he will probably play for the Washington Wizards but I couldn't care less. Pro basketball is so boring. I'd rather watch Lumberjack games than pro basketball. that is how much I dislike it. On the other hand, college basketball is fun to watch. I have blown so many weekends (especially in March) watching college BBall for hours on end.

Jordan's not gonna come back, he's just playing with the media. It'd be nice to see him back, but it is not going to happen, and you can quote me on that.

I cant see MJ playing in the NBA and not being the best out there. Lets face it, the younger guys are going to be better, just because Michael's not getting any younger. I dont think Mike could see himself playing and not be the best, either.

Utah Jazz!!!

Just imagine if he went to play for the LA Lakers. Would that not rock.

Sounds to me lie he's really connecting with the players on the Wizards. Really sad that the Gators couldn't have Kwame for even a year though. With MJ, still not a good team, YET, but an OK team ~.500. Without MJ, last year's record again. He's never going to dominate the way he once did, but making others around him into better players accounts for a large part of his potential contribution. I hope he DOES come back, but players like T-Mac and Vince Carter will PUSH him harder than he was being pushed before...maybe a reason for him to come back...Go Magic!

I do have to admit, if he did come back (which won't happen), it's true, he wouldn't come close to the domination he had in his earlier days, yet, even after his first comeback he was much better than any of the players out there today in their prime, he's a truly amazing man, he'd probably even still be all-star material if he came back, but if he wants to stay the way he is, the way he deserves to be, the best ever, he should just not come back, and he knows that.

Even IF he came back and played average ball, do you think for a second he wouldn't be recognized as THE player...kinda like Pele, Gretzky, Warren Sapp...

Warren Sapp?

BIG Bucs fan, wondering when somebody would catch me with that one...He IS an intimidator, but granted NOT on that level...YET!

Yeah, that's what I figured, he is one of the biggest and strongest defensive linemen in the NFL right now, not yet the greatest, but he could very well wind up there someday, but I doubt he'll ever get to the ranks of Deacon Jones or Reggie White (although I HATE the Packers, he is a great player(good thing he's not with them anymore)).

Actually, I don't find that to be impossible. Players like Robert Parish and Wilt Chamberlain both overstayed their welcome and both probably would've been seen in a much better light. When Robert Parish retired, it went virtually unknown, although earlier in his career he was one of the better centers out there, and if he retired before his career went downhill, he would've had a much more celebrated retirement and would probably be brought up much more than he is now (not saying it would happen, but it's a possibility). If Wilt retired earlier, he might've been standing in front of Michael during that NBA 50th anniversary celebration instead of behind him, RIP Wilt.
