If he was going to be like his father he should start scoring more than a basket or two a game.
 
2012-01-09 12:30:14 PM
I think he needs to try minor league baseball.

Jeff Jordan, the oldest son of Michael Jordan, is leaving the Central Florida basketball team for what he says are "personal reasons."



a.k.a. I'll never be a quarter as good as my father, and I don't feel like spending an entire career hearing THAT several times a day. Can't say I blame him. It's like being Jakob Dylan, but worse.

At least Jakob Dylan had a career.

How will the team ever survive without his crucial 2.7 points per game?
 
2012-01-09 12:34:51 PM
So he doesn't want to be a degenerate gambler who gets his father killed?

Well, that's good.
 
2012-01-09 12:35:23 PM
What, did he get caught gambling on basketball take a sudden interest in minor league baseball, like his old man?

and a much better voice than papa, though his songs can't even come close to 60's Dylan.


and of course he left. he was getting 2.7 points a game. nearly worthless.

That's a pretty harsh fail tag there, subby. For the record, I also fail at being as good a basketball player as Michael farking Jordan. I can live with that.

That's exactly what I'm saying. Jakob Dylan is good, and his father is a legend. Jeff Jordan sucks, and his father is the undisputed greatest basketball player of all time.
 
2012-01-09 12:42:59 PM
His last year playing, with his little brother as a starter and the teams scoring leader and him as a part time player. And a few games ago a couple of underclassmen started getting more playing time and he was watching almost the entire game from the bench.
So he up and quit to avoid the embarassment of it.
 
2012-01-09 12:44:30 PM
His brother is good. Jeff was used defensively so his stats were always underwhelming.

He isn't the undisputed greatest ever, sorry, the NBA existed before 1985, and there were some damned good players roll through before then.

You average a triple double for 82 games, and almost do it 5 other times, you're a bad motherfarker. I don't care what year it is, or who you're playing against, it could 3rd grade girls, you're some shiat.
 
2012-01-09 01:00:28 PM
I wonder how much Dad pushed him to play in the first place. If he doesn't like basketball, then I'm happy for him.

11 championships out of 13 seasons, 3 of them while as a player-coach. What, do some of them not count because Bill Russell didn't have to face juggernauts like the Vancouver Grizzlies or the Toronto Raptors?

Hmm maybe if he plays in a conference with Memphis he should play for Memphis if he wants to win.

Please. Jordan is so widely regarded as the literal #1 in the sport, and winning 11 championships is easy when there's no 3 pointers and so few greats in the league. Bill Russell can keep his 11 Special Olympics medals, Jordan earned his championships through the toughest overall competition the game has ever seen.
 
2012-01-09 01:16:59 PM
When asked why he left by his dad he replied, "I don't want your life!".

Aren't you just the most adorable fanboy? I bet you also think Bryon Russell wasn't fouled, and Michael just really loved minor league baseball, don't you?

Not to mentioned averaged a triple-double for an entire season, and it wasn't MJ, so yeah, he may be the greatest, but it is in dispute
 
2012-01-09 01:31:17 PM
If you are outside of Illinois or North Carolina and over the age of 40 and still think Jordan is the greatest ever, then I'll listen to your argument. Otherwise there's too much biased opinion.

Yeah, few greats in the time of Bill Russell. Cute stuff. Aren't you missing third period English right now?

Let's be honest, Michael Jordan really did change the game of basketball. He was one of the greatest players of his era. But to call him the undisputed greatest player of all time is retarded. Even though I kind of agree, I can argue that for five other players, just because I feel like it. Undisputed my ass.
 
2012-01-09 01:49:57 PM
He should have learned the secret from his father: Copious travelling and offensive fouling that isn't called by the refs because your name is Jordan.

Win Shares (new window)

Russel was great but he wasn't nearly as great as Wilt Link (new window)

If the numbers were close you could talk about championships, but Wilt's numbers, in the same era, blow away Russel across the board.

MugzyBrown: Wilt's numbers, in the same era, blow away Russel across the board.


Head-to-head says a lot, though.

And you have to consider the player-coach aspect, 11 titles, the value of defense vs offense, etc. It's questionable.

And win shares just look silly when you have David Robinson at No. 2 all-time. He might not have been the No. 2 center in his state during his career.

IAmRight: And win shares just look silly when you have David Robinson at No. 2 all-time. He might not have been the No. 2 center in his state during his career.


I don't like advanced stats much myself, but it's a good quick overall look at a player's effectiveness.

Jordan has the rings, mvps, and stats. If not for his foray in the baseball, he probably wins 8-straight rings and he would have had even more MVPs if they didn't start getting bored with giving him the award.

Maybe. I choose to penalize him for being a consummate asshole.

There are very few players who are good enough to be the undisputed "best" at their game. MJ is not quite there. I can think of arguements for about five other players.

Jeff Jordan was not going to get much playing time after AJ Rompza returned from NCAA mandated suspension. UCF is so deep on the bench now that Jeff probably would have been the 12th or 13th man

This is a good UCF team, which already has a win over UConn. And, won that game without Rompza, who is the best PG in CUSA.

Marcus Jordan, Jeff's younger bro, is just a more talented player, who has a chance at an NBA career if he can develop into a PG (which he played as when Rompza was out).

I wonder if Jeff went to UCF to play with his younger bro...and for being insurance if Rompza was permanently booted off the team for NCAA violations. Interesting is that Marcus and Rompza played H
 
2012-01-09 05:22:42 PM
Imma gonna finish....

Marcus and Rompza played HS ball together...while Jeff Jordan played at a different school.

Jordan may have been good, but best ever? He didn't have to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes.

Unauthorized Bratwurst: Jordan may have been good, but best ever? He didn't have to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes.


He did drag Laimbeer, Mahorn and Rodman up and down the court however.

I'm also pretty sure Rodman has been to a Turkish prison and seen grown men naked before.
