If there's one thing the Lakes need it's to become an older team

Double digit stats as in.... 10 or more points?  I don't follow basketball, but isn't that a relatively easy thing to do?  I mean, not for me or you, but for absolutely anybody in the NBA?

I'm guessing 10, 11 inches flaccid.

Michael Jordan versus JaVale McGee. GO!
 
2013-02-09 06:10:52 PM  
I still maintain that Dennis Rodman was screwed out of an NBA Finals MVP.

Make no mistake, Jordan's probably the greatest player in the game's history, but Rodman put pure hustle into those games.

I used to work with Antawn's dad, A.C., while Antawn was still at UNC. A.C. was the nicest most down to earth guy I've ever met. He was the custodian at a chemical plant in CLT that I worked at as a co-op for a few years while in college. I remember how nervous he was about the draft and the subsequent strike that year. When Antawn finally did get his NBA contract, one of the first things he did was buy his parents a very nice house in a nice area of Charlotte - what I imagine was a significant upgrade from A.C.'s upbringing in Miss.

I know...csb, etc.

/A.C. also taught me how to tie the perfect knot in a trash bag so that it stays in a trash can. It might sound unimportant, but since I left ChE for the kitchens, I have to change a lot of trash bags and it is amazing how many people can't do it properly.

I thought his Wizards years put all this talk to rest.

SilentStrider: Michael Jordan versus JaVale McGee. GO!


Probably Jordan, but it would be close. Jordan would probably sport his Hitler mustache and probably end up teabagging McGee post-match out of frustration that it was close.
 
2013-02-09 07:06:36 PM  
He probably could
 
2013-02-09 07:10:00 PM  
Unlikely? Off his prime and he'll still kick most of the NBA's ass.
 
2013-02-09 07:16:31 PM  
If anyone could, it would be him.

That is all.

If you have to make your own shot, it is not so easy. But if you are a good shooter, and your team sets screens for you and feed you the ball, then it could be easier to do.
 
2013-02-09 07:26:30 PM  
if the nba referees still treat him like a star player, then yes he could easily score double digits
 
2013-02-09 07:37:11 PM  
if anybody says he couldn't then he'll come back and do it so everybody say he can

I think you misspelled Pippen

Turnovers is technically a type of stat

Against me?

Yeah.

Triple digits if he didn't pass out from laughing so hard.
 
2013-02-09 08:28:08 PM  
If by double-digit stats, Antawn means "the number of sandwiches consumed in one sitting", he'd be right.

/Michael let himself go after he retired from the Wizards
 
2013-02-09 08:46:15 PM  
I'd wager he could do it. I bet he'd want to play more than ten minutes per game though. Odds are, a lot of teams would be interested in him. But I think it'd be a gamble to sign him to a contract.
 
2013-02-09 09:06:19 PM  
He could, but he'd have to mix in some salads at this point.
 
2013-02-09 09:27:11 PM  
I was in Birmingham when Jordan played for the White Sox AA-team there. Three things stood out: (1) he "looked" a foot taller than all the other baseball players in person; (2) his swing was awful and awkward, but he made contact and had numerous lucky infield singles and Texas bloopers; and (3) he actually wasn't that bad in the field (least what I can remember from 20 yrs ago).

I'm pretty sure that he can only play for the worst team in the league.  Both talent wise and the fact that Jordan owns the Bobcats.

That is because he has good hand eye coordination, which most basketball players have. If you have good hand eye coordination, and keep your eye on the ball when you are swinging, you will make a lot of contact, the problem is if you have a horrible swing you won't make good contact.
 
2013-02-09 09:44:01 PM  
I think he means Jordan going up against him.  To be fair, I could score 6 points on Jamison.

Dammit I didn't.  Nice one.

Thinking the same thing. I have no doubt he could come in and put up 10-20 against any team, even at 50 years old.
 
2013-02-09 11:15:12 PM  
And weirdly there was a documentary about Sam Bowie on TV this afternoon. With much wincing on my part. And a nasty little dig from Jordan after they beat the Blazers.

Jordan is the GOAT

No way in hell he'd average even 10 ppg playing at that age. But then this is just a UNC guy plumping a UNC guy.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: No way in hell he'd average even 10 ppg playing at that age. But then this is just a UNC guy plumping a UNC guy.


antawn can't even manage 10 per game. jordan would break a hip before he scored 10.

He's a ten-foot tall beast man, who showers in vodka, and feeds his baby shrimp scampi.

He orchestrated the merger between UNICEF and Smith and Wesson.
 
2013-02-10 01:45:19 AM  
He probably could score 10 ppg, if he got about 10 shots a game. But he would be so bad in all other parts of the game I don't see a coach, who is trying to win, playing him enough.

I will never bet against Jordan again. Fool me 11 times shame on you. I don't care if he is 70... Not a nickle against him.

And those statistics are "turnovers" and "prop bets on the game."
 
2013-02-10 10:38:21 AM  
Whether he still did OK or not it would totally be worth it to have him on your team for the merchandising. Michael Jordon-the T-shirt, Michael Jordan-the Coloring Book, Michael Jordan-the Lunch box, Michael Jordan-the Breakfast Cereal, Michael Jordan-the Flame Thrower.

For a few nights or weeks maybe, but over the whole season? I doubt it since an older body would wear down quicker even if he's still in decent shape, hits hurts more, elbows sting longer, and knees don't recover as quick.

Getting old suck, we have enough ice packs to cure a cheer squad after a competition.....hey a man can dream, right?

I hear ya!  Sitting here in the Barca-Lounger trying to recover from yesterday's workout (knees and elbows hurtin' like hell).  Already being old and ugly, I am thinking I might as well as fat to it and complete the trifecta.

Maybe you should see how Jordan bets first, and then bet accordingly.
 
2013-02-11 02:15:47 PM  
I don´t like the guy too much, but getting some thunder from the 90s might make us watch the NBA again.

His return game would be a ratings bonanza, even if he sucks.

Make him a starter on a playoff team, and the NBA would just explode on the sheer awesomeness and leave a supernova of 100 dollar bills... An NBA finals with Jordan as a starter could muster some super-bowl type ratings.

.....of course, there is a bigger chance of a Space Jam remake, but if anyone call pull this off, it is His Airness.

There is absolutely zero percent chance of that happening.  He's fat and out of shape he wouldn't be getting the superstar calls that he so heavily relied on back when he wasn't fat and out of shape.
