If I had the power to detain someone, I think "Do you know who my dad is?" would make me more likely to use it, not less.

So if I arrest you, I might get to meet Michael Jordan? Cool.

Celebrity-kid entitlement plus being drunk plus being black after dark in Nebraska. Saying "I'm Michael Jordan's kid" is probably what kept him from getting shot.

I have to stick up for Jordan's baseball career. Yes, he wasn't very good, but he was probably the best 31-year-old in AA ball that year. And he did it all having had no practice whatsoever in baseball since high school. The thing about baseball is that it requires almost no athleticism (in the way that running up and down a basketball court for 48 minutes does) but it does require certain incredibly refined muscle twitches and reflex reactions. It takes most mediocre AA players all of their young lives to learn how to hit .202. Jordan picked it up during spring training at an age when most major leaguers are getting too creaky to play!

I'm not saying he had major league talent. Or, I'm not saying he had major league talent left in him at 31. If he'd played in college, he might have been average, who knows. But that's the best part. He quit the thing he was the best in the world at and took up something that was a challenge. Did he fail? Absolutely! Did he try and try again until he succeeded at that impossible task? No, that'd be stupid! These are both valuable life lessons.

Ok, I think the question that no one wants to confront is this: Why is 4/5 of the article repeated in the caption of the picture?

semiotix: I have to stick up for Jordan's baseball career... (other good thoughts)


Agreed, although I always looked at it a little more minimally: The dude had worked his butt off, dominated his chosen sport and (imho) left it in better condition than he found it, and made several metric craploads of money. Then he wanted to take time to pursue a different interest. For some dudes, that means buying a ranch. Some make a rap album. Others plumb the depths and breadths of women the world has to offer. He wanted to play baseball. More power to him. Rock on, rich guy that kicked arse, rock on.

Oh, did he do the "do you know who my dad is?" thing? Didn't know that.

How about disputing the individual comments rather than just saying NUH UH YOURES STUPIDS HEAD?

There are plenty of kids who are drafted and never have a season that good in AA.

Perhaps you'd like me to spend a few hours cross-referencing statistics of all 31 year olds in the minor leagues between 1994-1996? No, my friend, you're the one who needs the citation when you make a claim like that.

No, I consulted the birth certificates for all minor league baseball players active that year.

Relax, guy. My point is that AA ball is made up mostly of guys within spitting distance of 20. If you or a loved one was batting .203 in AA as a 31-year-old that year, I sincerely apologize.

As for kissing his ass, I said he wasn't very good. (Allow me to ass-kiss you for your reading comprehension.) I just like that he did it, and somehow managed not to go 0-for-career with a .450 fielding average, which is what you'd expect.

You wanna bet? Supposedly Scottie Pippen is the Most Despised Former Bull among people who meet him. I'd heard Jordan despises Kobe Bryant, I suspect because Kobe's out to break every record that MJ ever set, just like MJ did to Bird & Magic

To be fair, half the guys those cops arrest claim to be the son of an NBA star. Most of them aren't lying, either.

Sorry, apparently this is some sort of inside joke, and I'm not in on it. Can you explain?
 
2012-07-02 02:14:26 PM  
i'm not a big fan of cops, particularly when they use unnecessary violence, but if i were a cop arresting someone who said something like that, the next thing i'd be saying to them is 'hey, stop hitting your head on the car! just get in, don't repeatedly slam your head into the top of the car. hey, if you don't stop that i'm going to have to tase you.".

just 'cause that's all lame and pathetic and stuff.

also, michael jordan's son looks like a math major who likes to party, but only with other math majors.

I'm thinking the "do you know how famous my (relative) is" or even the "do you know how famous I am" card is pretty much always going to fail. Do you really think the cop is going to let him slide and thus lose the bragging rights of "Yeah, well, I arrested X!" in the changing rooms?

Unearned wealth and privilege is humanity's biggest problem. Estate taxes on anything more than the value of an average single-family home should be be close to 100%.

I don't give a flying fark what your parents and more distant ancestors left you. What have YOU done?
 
2012-07-02 04:55:48 PM  
Actually a decent kid with a dope problem. He was suspended beginning of season (when a college is not specific, it is usually dope). His brother played with him at UCF, but his bro mysteriously quit the team mid-season (dope suspected)

Oh, and yes, Marcus gambles like his dad, too.

Sad to see this happen. He is a decent hoops player but never progressed while at UCF. He is good enough to play pro ball overseas, but just not NBA material. Not Ken Griffey Jr....but not Pete Rose, Jr
