But beyond a marketing idea I don't see any point to him coming back. The risk vs reward is not good. No one wants to see a broken down Michael Jordan retire 10 games into the season. And the chances of him coming out, playing 60+ games in the season and averaging above 10 or 15 points is very slight.

His body simply didn't have enough left, due to him carrying the load.

I remember watching those stats you're referring too as well. They showed them in a few telecasts, and you're correct. The numbers are night and day, not even close. Then there's those days in which he felt good (for as good as somebody at that age can feel) and those were the games he killed. There was even stretches in which he would average MVP numbers for 2 weeks stretches a number of times.

Honestly speaking, he can probably come back and play 20-25 minutes per game. A supporting role with less pressure will do wonders for his endurance. As I mentioned, playing with a big man that commands double teams should crate more one on one situations for him, in better positions on the court increasing his efficiency instantly.

15 ppg 46% 4 boards 4 assists 1 stl is a decent hypothetical stat sheet

Its no surprise the 3 stupidest posts in this thread belong to you. You're on Jordan's jock so hard its embarrassing. No. He couldn't average 15ppg. He wouldn't average 10ppg. Maybe 5ppg on some of the worst shooting percentages in the league. He'd put up Austin Rivers type numbers but he'd be 10 times less valuable.

In your other post you bring up his solid fundamentals. Hakeem had them too. So did KAJ. At 39 Hakeem was putting up 7ppg on 46% shooting. Kareem put up 10ppg on 47% shooting at 41. Everything starts to deteriorate more rapidly once you get older.

46% shooting for Jordan? Where are you pulling this random arbitrary number from? You have great shooters who pace themselves and take shots within the flow like Steph Curry, and hes only shooting 43% this season. What in the world makes you think a 50 year old is going to do better than him? You're downright delusional and idiotic.

Did someone really say that 50 year old Michael Jordan could score 50 points in an NBA game?

Words cannot even come close to describing how ridiculous that statement is. WOW.

He can still score, especially if he operated exclusively in the post. His problem would be defense and his body at 50 simply couldn't keep up. Skillwise though, sure he could still play but skill and shooting ability is the last to go, the body simply cant keep up after a certain point.

He can play, but I dont think he would want a limited bench player role. Also getting into NBA shape would be another challenge for him.

That said, his jumper is still silky smooth, and his BBIQ is beyond 99% of NBA anyway.

He could play for a few games but he'd get hurt. He was having injury woes as aa wizard in his late 30s. A decade of age would make that worse.

It's a stretch but given the right circumstances he can do it.

Again, it isn't his skill that's the issue here, players and coaches have mentioned that he still beats players. This is workout being in shape, without really playing much. Big IF no doubt, but I can almost guarantee that there isn't a single player or coach that wouldn't be surprised if he did just that (naturally he'd have to come back first).

He'd be drawing fouls and hitting that fadeaway jumper on automatic. Add in two 3 pointers and he has a shot UNDER THE PROPER CONDITIONS.

If he came back, he'd lose his .001 - or whatever it is - all time ppg lead he has over Wilt.
