Marcus Jordan has alot of potential but he is only short about 6'0" tall and Jeffrey is an above average Basketball player but i do not think he have the talent of his father but if we be ala Brent Barry he can be as half as good as his dad and that is good enough for me.

I would hate to be his son and play basketball... I think I would have played something else like baseball football soccer something so the expectations of the name and legacy gets put on my shoulders...

If I am good enough to play ball at a major NCAA program, then I have to play. I owe it to myself. I cannot just do a half-a$$ed job playing baseball because I'm afraid of my father's legacy.

If I'm merely mediocre, then sure give it up, play some pick-up with friends for fun. Let everyone brag how they beat MJ's son.

It is very sad if your the son of his airness and you do not even have half of the talent of your dad.

It must been a painful experience for The Barry Brothers to be compared with their HOF Dad Rick Barry. But i think Brent Barry is the closest thing to his dad.

Back to the Jordan's Brother, I personally think that if they will be determined enough to work on their game and just play basketball the way it use too without any media ruining their image.

I think they can be good players that fans would understand that they are a different breed from Michael Jordan but with their insights of the game, They can be good NBA role players.

Because Lebron, Oden, Kevin Durant, Jordan,Bird, Malone, Dwight Howard, Pippen, Garnett are once in a life time talent before they even make it ito the NBA.They show some greatness in their HS and College game, they also have an NBA type of body and game in that is inside of them.

By the way the Jordan kid have weak genes their father is at least 6'4"- 6'5" but their height is 6'0"-6'1". Anyway both of MJ's parents are below 6 ft. and Michael Jordan is the only one who grew 6"4" and above.

you cannot really blame them but if your surname is Jordan and your related to his airness right before you make it in the NBA old fans like Dejordan and company will judge your game.

Wow, Jeffrey Jordan modelled his game after Lebron James and Chris Paul hear at the 40 secs. of the video. The King must be very proud that a son of a legend is looking up to his game.
