Michael Jordan to come back (again) with Shaq?

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...ors/index.html


"The loose talk around the league is Michael Jordan has been working out like a demon, testing the possibility of joining forces with Shaquille O'Neal in Miami, according to Nuggets GM Kiki Vandeweghe.

Ill go on the record in saying.. I have no problem at all with it, if he decides to comeback

Come to Atlanta MJ!

of course.. I also think Rickey Henderson should be on an MLB team (at least after they slip too far out of the race)

I hope it happens. The only thing better than the Pistons beatig Shaq with his new attitude, size, and team is adding MJ to that equation.

[CominToAmericaBarber]Michael Jordan came back twenty-five times, and won a championship each time! While his batting average was .975! And he was seventy! six! years! old! That's what he told me when he was in here. [/ComingToAmericaBarber]

How much has he lost gambling this year? He obviously is trying to kick up that endorsement money again if he does this. I've never seen a guy more determined to ruin his legacy. As long as the Heat keeps him from being a GM they should be okay though.

Honestly, I hope that he doesn't come back but I think he'll be a decent player if he does (about 15 PPG).

He won't comeback.

Big deal...he's working really hard.

I worked really hard to get a job...but then quit.

Eat that MJ!

the following statement is from a carolina grad and tarheel fan...

mj should just stop. leave it alone. its over. there is no more for you. the league will make it without you. these youngsters will survive without your expert tutelage (see how well rip hamilton did without you?). just put down the ball and walk away.

(upon reading this news somewhere kwame brown began to twitch and sweat profusely)

Radio Shaq & the Heat don't want Michael Jordan:

http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald...9735577.htm?1c

Shaquille O'Neal has told Heat teammates that NBA legend Michael Jordan wants to play for Miami this season, and went so far as to ask a few Heat players whether it would be a good idea, two sources with knowledge of the situation said.

O'Neal told teammates that Jordan has left him several messages, and O'Neal was convinced Jordan wants to play for the Heat this year. O'Neal told teammates he was not interested in having Jordan join the Heat, and others agreed, the sources said. O'Neal even asked whether one of the players should go to management and express the desire not to add Jordan, one of the sources said.

Shaq sounds like he is setting up for his retirement job.

When Shaq retires i bet he buys a team.

in an interview with jordan.. MJ says he is not coming back and wasnt even considering the idea.


i guess for now on, every time he plays a pickup game that includes some current nba players.. or anytime he is seen excercising.. there will be rumors that he is making a comeback
