Jordan's love of the game is strong enough that if he thought he could contribute at a high level he'd play in spite of that. His whole Wizard comeback he was only damaging his ppg and he still played. What's stopping him is that he knows he couldn't sustain a quality return, whether he'd publicly admit to it or not. MJ isn't coming back so he can play at the level of Keith Bogans.

If he would come back now I predict a 30ppg/2.1steal/DPOY/AllStar/MVP/FinalsMVP type season.

A 50 year old isn't gonna be able to work himself into NBA shape. If he did he'd be coming off the end of the bench in cleanup time. I'd love more than anyone to think he could play a useful bench role now adays. He's the GOAT by far IMO but he's 50 and realistically his body wouldn't hold up to a single game, much less a season.

If he hadn't come back to the Wizards in 2001 and went to a decent team like the Hornets instead, it coulda been special and MJ woulda looked a whole lot better.

Anyone that believes that Jordan or anyone else could compete in the NBA at age 50 has never been anywhere close to age 50.

He would be garbage. I'm sure he could still score around 10 ppg on 35% shooting but it would all be on ISO post ups that would use entire possessions. He would be a total ball stopper and the worst defender in te league

And his body would fall apart in the first month.

No. He couldn't. He'd be one of the worst players in the league. He's the best player ever. Leave it there. Hate that people have to try to build up a legend with horseshit.

I am sure MJ could play well 1 on 1, maybe even half court. But he wouldn't hold up for a season. As a fellow old guy i say no chance. Training camp, practices, 82 games, no way a 50 year old can hold up.

Some of you actually think he'd come back if he felt he'd be garbage?

Of course he'd only even consider a comeback if he was sure he could play.

I agree that a 50 year old wouldn't have the same stamina, but he wouldn't be playing 30 minutes, he wouldn't be carrying the entire load and getting the same defensive attention. This is also MJ we're talking about, who even out of shape is still beating NBA players in their prime. Get him in multiple iso situations in a game and he's scoring on most of those.

SMH people comparing him to steph curry.

Bobcats could really use MJ. I'd actually love to see him come back just out of pure curiosity.
