Didn't Jordan's statline in that game totally kill Iverson's statline? But because of one play, Jordan came out of the losing end of that right? LOL

You guys are so defensive. It was a joke. What would a clip of Jordan being crossed by another player have to do with a political race. Surely you realized it was a joke and I'm just messing with JordanStar. You can't be that daft.

Moreover, with all the things JordanStar has said, you choose to argue with what I said. That's sad.

If Bush were president of the Wizards, he'd likely do a better job than Jordan did.

Of course he would put the wizards in deficit by 50 million and declare 'mission accomplished' after winning 17 games .

In the MSNBC thread, Loki said:

Quote:
Not sure if it's the same story, but another time while he was with Barkley he refused to give a homeless person money and told Chuck that "if they can say 'can you spare a dollar', then they can say 'welcome to McDonalds'."

Jordan would lose the election on that alone.

And if you consider trash talkin debating ehhh..

Put Michael Jordan on meet the press and watch! For this kind of format, he has:
1. Deep pipes, which instantly gives you credibility even if you don't know what you're talking about (and he would)
2. screen charisma which people relate to
3. An analytical mind to fall back on
4. And a quick wit for improptu line of questioning

Basically he would do great against any kind of press.

In all seriousness, Tim Russert would murder Michael Jordan. Heck, Chris Matthews and Keith Olberman would murder Michael Jordan. Even Colmes from Hannity and Colmnes would murder Jordan, and that's pathetic.

I already asked Jordanstar nicely once to stop, then told him off again.

He's just as bad as Eliteballer in my eyes now. (ok, almost as bad)

Nope Jordan took a 19 win team that was in BUDGET DEFICIT, and turned it into A PROFITABLE venture in 3 years, while doubling its win total also.

Just about every company he's ever run or been associated with has been better off AFTER GETTING JORDAN than BEFORE JORDAN. Look up the stock values/net worths of all those companies/teams. Even his motorcycle circuit group has done and grossed well.

Lets be honest. You simply asked JordanStar to stop. You took the time to rebut my post. I suggest you take some time to do the same with some of JordanStar's posts.

So that's why they didn't allow him to take up his post within the organization after his third retirement? He did such a great job, you'd think they'd welcome him back with open arms... Instead they put him out on the street...

Then you don't understand how television works. Michael Jordan is a TALL man with a deep baritone voice. In a 1-on-1 interview session, he would dominate the screen physically. And if he halfway holds to critical questioning, he wins by default.

Lol, you think Jordan's height and the deepness of his voice would intimidate Tim Russert? We're talking about a journalist who has interviewed heads of state and would-be Presidents and held his ground. Lol, why am I even having this conversation?
