In the world of the trash-talking, loud mouth NBA player, this sad day has come. Jordan was the greatest player to ever grace the court. While many will criticize his last few years, you cannot deny the impact he has had on the sport, and the professionalism he carried with him. So long Michael, the game will miss you sad.gif

This year.. until the $ starts to fade.. sorry, I think he is the best Basketball player ever.. but I HATE when players retire 4 or 5 times... How do you retire from a profession more than once? Sorry... Just a pet peeve of mine..

he's done for sure this time. Besides, no team had to take him back if they didn't want him biggrin.gif Think about something that has been your entire life, then the pressures on and off the court mount to a point where your fed up, so you quit. But it's in your blood and no matter what else you do, you cannot change that. He was still able to play at a professional level; not like his 'glory days' but still as good as, if not better, than the average player. The money will never fade away. Jordan is wealthy beyond any of our wildest dreams, and can surely find work off the court if need be.

Remember when he came back to the Bulls after the first retirement? Everyone said he was rusty and couldn't hack it in the NBA anymore.

Championship
Championship
Championship


When he came back the second time, for the Wizards, he told the media right off the bat that his role would be more of an educator than an impact player. He's true to his word. He still made an impact, but nothing like in the 90s. But then again, was he expected to? No matter how you slice it, Jordan is the greatest player ever. It's too bad that some critics focus on the fact that he wasn't as good in the later years, when that wasn't even his focus.

shouldnt have come back as a player, the 3rd time.. he would have been better as an owner/ass. coach or something like that.

He was an owner. You can't educate players as an owner. And he didn't want to coach. He still played great, so there's no point in why he shouldn't have come back the second time.

MJ was a pure PRO on and off the court [ which is more than can be said for most ] but beyond that he had a talent like no other ... indeed the best ever !!!

He surely will be missed. I'm yet to see a player that can play on a consistent level like he has. He just loves the game and he probably didn't care much about the money. He's one of the players that deserved it. I still think it's full of crap that players get paid hundreds of millions before they even play one minute of the PRO level.. ALL the players should only get paid like 100K a year for playing sports. Take the rest of the money and spread it out to the teachers that deserve it MORE.. wink.gif
