MJ's other kid

Marcus Jordan, MJ's other son. All i know about him is that he plays the 2 (like his daddy). Does anyone know more info about him, whether he is considered a legitimate NBA prospect, has D1 potential, or if he plays any better than his older bro Jeffrey Jordan (who is used sparringly for the fighting Illini)?

From what I have read..

He has a nice all around game but is not considered a top prospect. He has a high basketball IQ, which he should. I believe he is 6'3. I can't even imagine the pressure on those two kids! I am sure others will have more info. I think he plays for Loyola Academy.

I saw him play once in

I saw him play once in person, he was pretty good in high school though I doubt he'll get to the NBA.

Marcus Jordan

Marcus attends Whitney Young in Chicago (transfered in after SO year). His squad has at least 6 other D1 prospects. He is listed at 6'3" but is probably closer to 6' than he is 6'3" (if my eyes serve my correctly he's 6'1"). Definately a two, he is undersized and very left-hand dominant (like most leftys). His mid range game is deadly and he is a good athlete. Has become a much better defender since his transfer. Probably best served going to a true mid major, but could contribute at a hi major.

Not really sure

The only time I seen him play is when he and his bro got demolished by Eric Gordon on ESPN. But he did look a little better than his brother in my opinion.

He is a little bigger then

He is a little bigger then his brother, and he actually got some good offers unlike Jeffrey. He won't have to walk on to a big ten school.

Here is an AP post about his Son.

Associated Press

Talk about it in the Message Boards

PEORIA, Ill. - Michael Jordan celebrated another Chicago basketball championship - his son's.

Marcus Jordan, son of the Bulls' six-time champion, scored a game-high 19 points to lead Chicago Whitney Young to a 69-66 victory over Waukegan in the Illinois Class 4A championship Saturday.

As Marcus Jordan and his teammates celebrated on the court after the final buzzer, Michael Jordan stood quietly, clapping his hands with tears in his eyes.

"Crying?" the NBA great said in response to a reporter's question. "I'm not crying. Not for me, anyway."

The younger Jordan was key down the stretch after two teammates fouled out, hitting four of four free throws in the final 3 minutes to seal the victory.

"Awesome," Marcus Jordan said. "Just awesome."

Michael Jordan, part-owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, skipped his team's home loss to Indiana so he could attend his son's game. Another son, Jeff Jordan, plays basketball for the University of Illinois
