There is a lot of debate going on these days about who is the greatest player of all time but without a doubt the majority agree it is Michael Jordan. His Airness was simply a once in a lifetime player who won six titles and six NBA Finals MVPs. It is always hard for us to let our heroes go, and even harder to stop bringing them up when discussing the current state of the game.
That’s why this story is gaining steam. Could MJ really be planning an NBA return at age 50? He did say and I quote, “don’t be surprised if you look up and see me playing at age 50. Don’t laugh.”
Jordan seemed like he was dead serious when he said that and according to reports is looking to get back down to his playing weight. He is even taking on rookies on his Bobcats squad like Michael Kidd-Gilchrist…. and winning.
“It was hard for me,” Kidd-Gilchrist said before playing in the Rising Stars Challenge rookie-sophomore game Friday night. “I lost. He’s the greatest man that ever played the game.
“Oh, yeah. He’s good.”
Could MJ really be plotting the comeback of all comebacks? We’ll see.
