Athletes Who Should Have Stayed Retired

Sometimes our favorite athletes just don't know when to throw in the towel. Here's a few that should have stayed retired!

Retired Athletes - Mohammad Ali

Mohammad Ali is considered the greatest boxer of all time. Who could forget the "Rumble in the Jungle" against George Foreman in 1974 or the "Fight of the Century" against Joe Frazier in 1971? Along with those memorable fights are a few moments Ali fans wish they could forget. In the early '80s, a 40-year old Ali attempted a couple of comebacks, only to embarrass himself and slightly hurt his incredible legacy.

Retired Athletes - Ricky Henderson

Baseball superstar Ricky Henderson simply refuses to quit. The career leader in stolen bases hung around baseball a good five years longer than he should have. In the last 10 years of his career, Ricky bounced around with seven different teams. It appeared that Ricky was finally calling it quits in 2003 as a member of the Dodgers but the mid-forties baseball icon couldn't stay put as he continued to play in the minor leagues with teams such as the San Diego Surf Dawgs and Newark Bears. To this day, Henderson has not ruled out the possibility of a major league comeback.

Retired Athletes - Evander Holyfield

Evander Holyfield did a lot in his professional fighting career. He won a bronze medal in the 1984 Olympics, he won the Heavyweight Championship a few times, and he even had part of his ear bitten off by Mike Tyson. So it's painful to see Evander try to fight these last few years. His age became so apparent, the New York State Athletic Commission even tried to have him banned because of diminishing skill. At 45 years old, Evander is still on a quest for one last title shot. Something tells us he should just try Dancing with the Stars again!

Retired Athletes - Michael Jordan

When Michael Jordan hit the buzzer beater to beat the Utah Jazz in the 1998 NBA Finals, it was a perfect send off to a perfect career. But MJ couldn't sit still for long - at nearly 40, Mike re-entered the NBA to join the Washington Wizards in 2001. In his two seasons with the Wiz, Jordan was dominated by the younger guards in the NBA such as Kobe Bryant and Tracy McGrady. On top of that, his team failed to make the playoffs both years he was there. Rumor is his sidekick with the Bulls, Scottie Pippen, is considering a comeback. We think Scottie should learn from Michael Jordan's mistakes and stay retired!
