Would Jordan Get Served Today?
Wednesday, December 19, 2007
No disrespect to His Airness, but this shot from a recent Bobcat practice session that Michael Jordan was in on has MJ looking like someone's uncle. E showed me a pic of Jordan in action from the same session, and I had to ponder: could Michael Jordan run with the guys today... without HGH?
The question is immediately drawn: "Is this his comeback?", which I would totally frown upon. Putting on that #45 was bad enough; we don't need you being 45 on the court these days, no matter how badly Charlotte plays. I mean, cats were quoted with saying MJ would "be effective", but putting up 15 a game isn't being effective to his legacy, it's counter-productive, and fodder for crazy ribbing from the most hardcore roundball writer to the random Perez Hilton-esque blogger, just commenting for hits.
Basically, this is my letter to Air Jordan: don't come back. Keep on the suit, stay in the booth, and play the game behind the desk. Make your sons your next stars, live through them. Don't muddy up my image of you and your reign.
