View Full Version : Completely hypothetical (yet somehow possible) situation

Ok I was thinking a few days ago about this, and with the lockout what else can you do :banghead:?
Now let me be clear I'M NOT SAYING I WANT THIS TO HAPPEN!
But, in the chance say a week or two from now that MJ decides to pull a Jackie Moon and play for the Bobcats, how the hell will it work? Does he sign himself to the vet minimum and write checks to himself or what?

No, it's actually not possible at all.

A lot of people say that Jordan could step back into the NBA now and score 20ppg. But that's just nostalgia talking. He is 48 years old and probably 50 to 60 pounds over NBA playing weight. If he tried to play at this age and weight with the amount of rust on his game that he has now, he would blow out both ACLs within a week.
there is an nba rule that an owner can't be a player.

there is indeed a rule, but i wonder how hard it would be to overturn? would certainly raise the profit of the bobcats if jordan played. and it's debatable, in my opinion, whether he could fill in as our back up wing and be better than matt carroll.
edit: with a lot of conditioning. and light minutes.

No, I don't think he can do it, he would have to sell the team in order to play. He had to step down in Washington as GM to return as a player, which I ultimately believe led to Washington being able to oust him. He had no power to return as GM after he failed in his attempt to rally the troops as a player.

I love me some Jordan. But he can't beat hendo in horse. Just be a good owner and win a championship!

10 years ago, he had to ride a bike next to the court in order for his knees to hold up. I'm not thinking they've gotten much better.
