View Full Version : MJ to return

06-01-2002, 12:12 AM
another comeback (http://espn.go.com/nba/news/2002/0531/1389173.html)

Michael Jordan is coming back from his injury rehab and plans on playing out his contract next year. I wish he would retire for good. I am afraid Mike will not be as dominating as I would like to remember him.

06-01-2002, 12:17 AM
He's definitely over the hill...

06-01-2002, 12:23 AM
And still better than 90% of the league.....

06-01-2002, 12:27 AM
Dirky is better than him ...

06-01-2002, 12:40 AM
Never, and never will be.......

06-01-2002, 12:42 AM
That is an ignorant statement. You have no idea what kind of player Dirk will turn into. Taking MJ's current level and predicting Dirk's future...no contest. NEETS is correct.

06-01-2002, 12:50 AM
Deja-Vu, do you like irk ?

06-01-2002, 12:54 AM
I dont care what his future is, he WONT win 6 rings. He wont be on an ALL NBA 1st Team, He wont be on an ALL NBA DEFENSIVE 1st Team. He will never win a gold medal, simply because the US will always take it. He will never avg 30+ a season. He will never ever be able to play the game the way MJ plays it. Contrary to popular believe guys, DIRK wont be getting much better than he was this year.

Neets, Like I said before I like Dirk ALOT. Why do you keep saying Irk?

06-01-2002, 12:56 AM
Because you insist on not reading (or comprehending) the ENTIRE thread, you miss the point on every post.

06-01-2002, 01:00 AM
You said "you like him ALOT but he WON'T win 6 rings" ...
Aren't you supposed to wish he WOULD ?

06-01-2002, 01:11 AM
Ignore him NEETS. It's not worth it. The original thread idea was:

Michael Jordan is coming back from his injury rehab and plans on playing out his contract next year. I wish he would retire for good. I am afraid Mike will not be as dominating as I would like to remember him.

The point is valid. Many of us want to see MJ retire at the top of his game. I personally wish he would not have come back to play with Washing ton although he did well when he wasn't injured. Your point was that Dirk can exceed MJ's current level of play. Another valid point. He is just here to start a Dirk v. MJ fight and to disrupt the board. He got chased like a baby from ezhoops and now he is trying to disrupt here. We would do well to just ignore him and he will tire and go away. His true colors have been flying all day.

If you look at legacy's I think Deja "may" be correct. It's hard to see anyone doing what Jordan has done actually or having the impact on the NBA or a team that he had. He raised the bar so high for excellence that it makes it so hard to gauge what superstars really are now a days.

With that being said, Dirk is EASILY better than Jordan right now. Jordan is still a threat because he was so damn good but there is NO WAY on gods green earth anyone with a brain would start a team now and take Jordan before Dirk. Hell I think even JORDAN would take Take before he took himself.

06-01-2002, 03:26 PM
NEETS point was currently...not legacy. Deja insists on screwing up every thread by twisting everything. But your post is very good.

06-01-2002, 03:48 PM
<< Never, and never will be....... >>

Apparently, Deja-Vu is Miss Cleo, now.

I bet that will be the next username...i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif

Oh Yes- Dirk is better than Jordan right now- along with about 8-10 others..But as far as getting better than Jordan was- no one in his right mind will argue that- I hope not anyway. Kobe is the only one I personally think can even come close- and before you get all crazy- i said CLOSE- not as well or better than...

Kobe is special...

06-01-2002, 10:34 PM
Kobe is very intelligent too. I heard he knows Greek, Spanish, English, and Italian. Impressive. But he still is a punkassbitch. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

06-01-2002, 10:38 PM
i'm glad MJ is coming back..i always enjoy watching him play

06-01-2002, 10:41 PM
I enjoy MJ as much as anyone I guess. But I do wish he would retire. How cool would it have been for that last second shot in the last game of the Championships to have been how he left the game? It was perfect and the comebacks have screwed that up. Maybe there is some magic left in that old body. I hope so.

06-01-2002, 10:46 PM
Kobe licks his lips too much in the course of regular conversation -- he thinks he is LL Cool J or something. He's a prissy kid that grew up overseas, he tries to act street and that's why I don't like him, I think, is because I'm a white kid from Hamilton, Texas and I could probably pull off the street-ness better than him. He's a dork.

06-01-2002, 10:47 PM
He just has that punk look to him IMO. I dunno why I don't like him.

06-02-2002, 05:04 PM
I disagree 100% with Rylan. Kobe doesnt try to look or act &quot;street&quot; as you call it. He is very comfortable with himself and is just being himself. I dont understand why people cant just deal with the fact that is he still a young man, but has his head on the right way. I think he is just too good at this age and people cant deal with it- instead they try to pick apart whatever so-called flaw they can find....JMHO

06-02-2002, 05:38 PM
Kobe is pompous. I think he would be accepted more readily on a national level if he was a little more humble. But he is damn good athletically and he is very intelligent.

06-02-2002, 05:40 PM
kobe's head is bigger than his game..that's saying alot when you consider he's one of the top 3-4 players in the NBA

06-03-2002, 08:41 AM

Lol Rhylan... I've said it before, I can't stand Kobe but he is an AMAZING player.. Definately one of the best in the NBA and probably the best at his position. However it would be hard for me to consider Kobe on Jordan's level because he plays with Shaq...

06-03-2002, 08:43 AM
kobe isn't on jordan's level..that's the biggest reason why it's hard to put him there thekid

06-03-2002, 12:43 PM
No I KNOW he's not on his level now, however I keep hearing people saying he'll be on his level at some point in his career. I'm just saying if Kobe goes on to win another 4 championships, or even if his numbers mimic Jordan's as long as he's with Shaq I personally couldn't put him on that level even then.

06-03-2002, 12:55 PM
i see your point thekid, but i dont' think kobe's numbers will ever mimic jordan's..

06-03-2002, 02:14 PM
Let's see what showbe can do without Shaq before we exalt him as Jordan-esque. My guess is that showbe will be exposed as a very good player but not Jordan class.

06-03-2002, 09:12 PM
JORDAN MAY NOT RETURN NOW!!!!! He has decided against the knee surgery and is pondering his future.
