MJ Returns

He said he was 99.9 percent sure it would never happen. But it looks like Michael Jordan and his collection of acrobatic slam dunks and fade away jump shots are in fact returning to the NBA. He's already won six NBA titles and he wants to win another one.

Since his second and "final" retirement from basketball in 1997, Michael has been busy as the part-owner of the Wizards. As you know, the Wizards have been less than magical on the basketball court. In fact, they've been a joke. It must drive Jordan crazy to watch his team spend night after night throwing up bricks and getting schooled by every other team in the league.

Air Jordan has been practicing and training over the past few weeks with his friend and former NBA superstar, Charles Barkley. The rumor is they'll make a comeback together on the same team. The question is: what team? They may decide to work their magic on the Wizards, since Michael owns part of the team. Other reports have Barkley and Jordan going to play for Phil Jackson and the LA Lakers. Imagine that - a team with Kobe, Shaq and Jordan. They'd be unbeatable.

No matter who Jordan decides to come back with, he'll never be as good he was. Some people will be disappointed when he doesn't hit as many shots or get as much air as he used to. No matter what, he'll still be able to mop the floor with any of the chumps playing for the Wizards, so it'll be good to have him back. Jordan says he'll officially make a decision in June. If Mario Lemieux can return to hockey, and Kobe and Shaq are friends again - anything is possible.

    What Do You Think About Jordan's Return?

    • Can't wait - he'll still be one of the best in the league.
    • Bad idea - he'll be old and out of air.
    • Who cares about Jordan? I can't wait for Celine Dion's comeback.

    I'm in marching band, and I don't consider it a sport.Yes, I'll admit that marching band can be physically demanding, but it isn't a sport. Marching band is nothing like soccer, lacrosse, rugby, tennis, boxing, etc. Comparing marching band to a sport like rubgy, hockey, cross country, or whatever is just... kind of ridiculous.You can argue that it does require some physical-ness, which it does. But it's just walking in tempo. It does involve some endurance to stand out in the sun and play an instrument for a while, but doing so isn't really that hard.
