Pure Speculation but interesting to ponder nonetheless. Can Jordan average 20 points a game today?

no way he comes back. It will take him a while (at least a year or two) to sell his stake in the Cats', and he can't play unless he does.

Not happening

As for how good he could still be, his stint 10 years ago yielded 20 ppg. I really don't think a 50 year old body can hold up and stay healthy enough to average a good amount of points.

He's not coming back. And he couldn't average 20 a night either. He still has the skills and brians to do so, but he couldn't average the minutes to get those 20 points with out being detrimental to the teams success on the defensive end of the ball.

I think he could still be a solid 6th/7th man off the bench who scores and leads in short bursts, playing maybe 20 mpg? Everyone who practices with him says he still has it, its just a matter of MPG. He'd be good in short bursts.

He's an owner now.

no i dont think hes coming back. ppl remember him in one jersey, and thats the way it should be.

that being said i think its pretty awesome that he still scrimmages with his team.

Do I think he can back? Yes,Michael Jordan is the first person in the world I wouldn't count it. Definitely not good for his legacy if he would make a comeback.Fans have a certain image about Michael Jordan and basketball,coming back would alter that image. The NBA certainty doesn't need more hype, just more quality

Didn't George Foreman come back out of retirement when he was 40 and won the heavyweight title?

Never stop believing.

Definitely not coming back. I do think he could be a good role player still. However, his body wouldn't be able to handle a full season or the times where there are back to back games. Probably just practicing with the team because he misses the game.

No way. how old is he 48?. One sad thing is I bet he is still better than alot of players who are in the league today.

He's already back, in NBA 2K11, in fact so is Larry Bird! As for real life, not happening as much as i'd love to see him play again.

He could probably play 12 MPG and average 4-5 PPG. Hes damn near 50 years old!

if he did came back. He should come back to the Bulls. He will have a better chance of winning a championship with us instead of the bobcats. :D

but I doubt he is going to come back. he is too old and his body wouldn't be able to withstand the beating because of it.

He's gonna wait until if kobe gets a 6th ring and then come back to get one more than him lol

Come on now, the man is 48 years old. I'm sure he could have his moments at times but there is no way his body can hold in a 82 game season. I guarantee you he was feeling it the day after that practice so there is no way he ever plays a back to back.

If MJ came back, his body would probably only let him play effectively once a week. Basketball is just so brutal on anybody's legs let alone a 48 year old.

Basketball is one of the few games I could see a 48 year old making a comeback in... Baseball, no... Football, absolutely not... Hockey, see football...

I would doubt any other athlete in the world...

I would never doubt or bet against Jordan...

People already doubted his first comeback and look how that turned out...

Age is only a state of mind... It's how well he has kept himself conditioned... I don't think he's let himself turn into Charles Barkley...

I think the bobcats might of over emphasized his play during practice.

The man is coming back. His knees are in better shape than Kobe's or Brandon Roy's, after all.

He would BLOW! Average about 6 PPG. He can't hang with the size of today's NBA and the better defenses.

No effin way this happens, too old too fat. No disrespect to the GOAT but it's just not gonna happen

Hellcrooner
02-12-2011, 09:59 PM
yeah he could average 20 ppg if they allow him to chuck the ball all the time he needs to make it happen.
Team record? well thats another thing completely, ask the wizards.

To be honest i think MJ can put up 25 a game . He is MJ a true legend that if he did come back he can school any nba player in todays game . I want this to happen to prove all u guys who think he couldnt.

This is somewhat related, Herschel Walker is planning an NFL comeback when he turns 50 isn't he? He's 48 now and does MMA stuff.

You're either a moron or just haven't played the game long enough. At 48 years old nobody could play through an NBA season.

He's not coming back and no I don't think he would be able to average 20 points per game

Jordan isn't returning.

My god I'D LOVE it though if he did.

Tony_Starks
02-12-2011, 11:11 PM
Jordan can put up 20 pts a night for as long as he's alive. I don't see it happening unfortunately. Would be sick if he did though, a 50 year old Jordan still giving people buckets!!!

Crackadalic
02-12-2011, 11:14 PM
Mj can put up 20 just by staring. IF he comes back it should be for the allstar game. A man can dream though

I'd love to see it even if it was just for 1 game. Wouldn't that be exciting seeing someone 48 years old playing in an NBA Game

HoopsDrive
02-12-2011, 11:46 PM
I don't doubt he can still play... it would have to be on limited minutes though (not that I think it's a remote possibility).

Some of you guys are on some hardcore drugs. No way MJ comes back and puts up anything close to 20 PPG. He's 50 years old. Seriously.

^This. While I don't doubt MJ could average close to 20 PTS every game he played, I really doubt he would be playing many games at all. You can toss out all back to backs.

MJ could average 20 pts a game if he was allowed to play once every two weeks.

if he were to play again... the question would be would he take the back seat to the young players on his team?

the question is.

after his speech at hof, sticking his one up ring over magic 3 over bird and all the rest of the crap and given his wit and ocmmittment to be the best threading on all the heads he needs to....

Would he join just before the playoffs the best seeded among spurs, heat, magic, mavs, celtics even if getting just marginal minutes in order to get a 7th ring that put a cushion between him and KOBE?

Obviously he would have to considering his legs would only let him play once a week or so anyway

he did mess them with his wizzards charade.

i think he woudl only sign for a team that had a hughe chance of allowing him to get to 7 rings preferably beating kobe on the way.

Thats the thing with egos like his.

No, just because he practiced with the team doesn't mean he will come back, he said he would always play basketball, but not professionally after 2003 when he knew at that time he was done.

he'd have to shoot purely jumpshots and close to a standing position as well

1. There is no way that any team in the playoff hunt would sign him.
2. HE IS THE OWNER OF A TEAM, don't you think it would be odd for him to be like "Oh yeah I own the Bobcats, but I play for the Magic." :confused:
