MJ Comeback ;)
For &$#%#&@! and giggles, lets say MJ returns at 50. He will have the power to do so as he will be an owner, so lets just say he does decide hell I wanna play for the bobcats. (I know its pretty crazy guys). So if Jordan is playing at 50, and giving himself like 15 minutes a game where he gives it his all, what do you think per 48 minutes stats would look like?
8 ppg (he will take share his shots)
2 reb (his will will get him some boards)
.5 stl (maybe pick up a steal here and there)
3 Assists (knows the game well, should be able to find some teammates)
And he is named a starter in the All-star game
I seriously believe if you asked MJ right now if he could still play in the NBA he would say yes, and he thinks about playing again everyday. I know the argument could be made that every former nba player thinks that, but none of comeback the amount of times Jordan has that's the argument I am making for Michael.
Can you play in the nba once you're in the hall of fame though?
I remember I saw him being i
nterviewed on Leno like a month ago. Leno asked him if he could still dunk.
Doesn't MJ look cashed in this video?
You kidding me? He lost 2 games in a row of H-O-R-S-E to Gerald Henderson. For real though if you haven't seen that vid you need to, it was posted on NBA.com recently.
Nevermind I found it for yall: http://www.nba.com/2010/news/03/01/jordan.owner.ap/index.html
lol..are you kidding me as well?..he would get killed...killed killed. he wouldnt even be able to compete at the college level. no one can beat father time. 38-40 years old is alot different then 50. i mean i love the guy as much as the rest of you but 50 is still 50 no matter how good a player was when they were young.
Pretty soon he will be on Viagra commercials.
He turned 47 would still be tough but if he trained from now till training camp he could probably play.
Not like he has to put in 30 mins a night for 10-15 mins he would probably be able to play but back to backs and long road trips would be brutal. He'd probably do what Clemens did in baseball and not travel with the team when he knew he wasn't going to play. Rickey Henderson played till he was almost 50 he wouldn't give it up even played in diff. leagues. Also at SF MJ wouldn't be chasing Pg's around or battling bigs inside he'd be up against backups for the most part. He never really had major injuries outside of that one year at least what we know about. He has a lot less mileage on his body than you would think becaz he missed about 5 years in between w/retirements.
lol..father time is undefeated. he could train all he wants but his body wouldnt allow him to do what his mind would. even with training the body at that age can only go so far jumps but so high and take so much banging. he would only be able to do things if the player let him
Julio Franco played until he was 50 in baseball but that guy kept his body in great shape. MJ looks like he is enjoying the good life.
yeahhhhh baseball is a tad different then basketball.. you can be a very good player while being in bad shape there. not so much here. except shaq because he's so big. baseball and basketball are 2 different animals
Obviously Quincey. Just saying that father time can be beaten sometimes. Gordie Howe played hockey at 70!
he would not be able to play defense at all...he will score a couple baskets here and there...but he would the worst one on one defensive player in the league...but i would still pay to see him play
you keep naming these different sports. find me one in basketball and then ill believe you. can father time be beaten in basketball at that age. not big men. guards...you show me that and ill agree
its his game, he can do whatever he wants to.
yeah i see some people just dont think in reality they just think in fantasy for the love of a guy. not taking into account that the nba isnt just straight up and down, the cuts and getting youre shot off while getting bumped plus checking quick guys who can jump. you canjust look at the celeb game during allstar weekend and watch former nba players who are 42 against people wo wouldnt even get a d1 scholarship. this is really disrespecting how hard it is to play in the nba
I am not trying to convince you about basketball. I was referencing the fact that you said father time is undefeated. You never mentioned basketball in your previous posts...you just said father time can't be beaten. But you can go ahead now and tell me that it was implied.
I am not a hockey fan but it is just as athletic as basketball, plus you get the sh@t kicked out of you.
how does that beat father time?..in the end dont we all die?..doesnt that mean father time wins everytime?
and those are 2 different sportsreguardless how athletic it is. you cant compare what one person did in one sport to what someone did in another sport. those are 2 different things.
and playing hockey at 70 is good but thats a battle. he beat father time in that battle. when he dies father time will have beaten him in the war...father time is undefeated and will never be beaten
^ getting way off topic and downright ridiculous
yeah the hocky thing and baseball thing when we are talking about basketball was pretty off topic
ill just go by the mans mouth. a couple years ago he was talking with micheal wilbon and wilbon asked him if he thought he could still play in the nba. jordan said no because his body wouldnt allow him to it even if he was in the best shape. he said physcially he couldnt do it but mentally he still could. it was on pti if im not mistaken. if someone can find that clip that would be great. i remember wilbon saying he believed jordan still could , in a joking way , and said " i know you could do better the" some nba player whos name i cant recall right now. and this was a couple of year ago. i think he knows more then any of us about what he can do. but hey i may be wrong
and i was talking father time and basketball.. not hockey or baseball so thumbs down right back at you kind sir..lol
Well Dikembe played last season and he was 44-45, so that's pretty impressive, and I remember from my child hood days into my mid teens didn't Kevin Willis play til like he was around 45?? I always remember Kevin Willis being apart of a new team every year up until 2005 or 2006.
yep big men where you dont have to be fast or quick. much easier for a big man to play longer then a guard
