Someone please just make basketball go away.

I think that (DELETED LINK) would work here as well.

Maybe he should retire. Fat albert is coming back. They might have a spot for him.
2001-12-28 10:40:20 AM  
That poor baby. Wait. He's filthy rich, isn't he?

Dear M.J.,
You get what you deserve you friggin traitor.
You turned your back on Chicago.

Die by the sword,

The End

This is just beautiful. I hope Jordan enjoys running his hall o' fame shame legacy into the ground.
2001-12-28 11:15:31 AM  
Well, he's still the best player I've ever seen step on a basketball court. I challenge anyone to name a better court general than Michael Jordan.

Turned his back on Chicago?! Jesus, I had a roommate once who was from Hoffman Estates. Jordan's first couple years in the league my friend would show up for Bulls games and get pretty much courtside seats with no problem.

It's difficult to overestimate that impact Michael's had on Chicago, the NBA, and professional sports in general.

I love BAKETball. back home we used to go to the playground, get baked, then throw around the ol' african round ball. Indiana DOES rule in Baketball.

but as far as basketball is concerned, I like NY.
2001-12-28 11:42:53 AM  
It's retrobution from all of the games we lost to the Bulls in the 90's. Don't come back!

As great as MJ was(I give him his props, he was awesome)and being the Earth's most popular athlete he still is only the second greatest athlete in Chicago history according to a Chicago newspaper poll.
The greatest athlete from Chicago professional sports was #34 of Da Bears, WALTER PAYTON.
2001-12-28 12:07:53 PM  
SLAYERSWINE- MJ didnt turn his back on chicago, mr. jerry reinsdorf n krause did that for him. Jordan would have played another year there if they kept phil jackson. you should know that.
2001-12-28 12:17:12 PM  
Oh I know, I wouldn't want to work for those 2 asshole. It is just that when MJ didn't come back to Da Bulls it made me and Plastic Baby Jeebus cry.
He should of left good enough alone IMO, that's all.
But then again that is selfish of me I must admit.
Who am I to tell the one time greatest player in the world that he is only a third as good as he used to be.
Is he as happy as he used to be when he was dominating with Da Bulls?
Doubt it.

Where's your Messiah now???!??!? HMMMM??!?!?!?
2001-12-28 12:39:47 PM  
That's three, sir!
2001-12-28 12:41:44 PM  
SLAYERSWINE is right. MJ came back once and showed the league what for. I wish he'd just go run his business. The thrill is gone.

23rd post. Stop here please.
2001-12-28 2:34:09 PM  
Thats ok, when he gets back to his house he can sit down and count the millions he made hawking 150$ shoes that 17 cent a day workers made and children were willing to kill each other to get.

Cause you know everyone wants to be like Mike.

Not what he used to be.
2001-12-28 4:28:54 PM  
Why don't they just remove the word retire from the dictionary? It doesn't really mean anything these days. What a joke.
2001-12-28 11:31:46 PM  
The younger players in the league don't respect MJ and cower from him like the older players always did. It also makes a difference when the refs call the o-foul when you shove your defender to the ground and shoot over his prone figure.
2001-12-28 11:58:15 PM  
The man returned to Basketball because he loved it so much and he isn't doing as good as he used to. He knew this would happen, and he prefers his reputation being tarnished to never getting to play the sport he loves, professionally, ever again. I admire him.

For farks sake, the guy isn't allowed to have a bad day? You people really piss me off. Micheal farking RULES!
2001-12-29 12:35:23 PM  
And oh yeah, I suffer from an old knee injury so I know what the fark it's like when you're goddamned legs go south on you. Let's see some of you assholes play like Jordan with your own case of tendonitis. Hell, let's see you play like Jordan when you were in the best shape of your life.

He DID rule.
