    Any truth to the rumor that MJ is working out to play 1 game with the Bobcats at age 50?

    Not sure about him coming to play an actual game ..

    But hasn't he practiced with the team in the past?

    The rumor that MJ has been working out more intensely with the team was started by Antoni Daimiel from Canal+ during the Timberwolves-Bobcats broadcast last Saturday. And now it's being reported on quite a few sites.

    They seem to also be taking into account MJ's HOF speech where he mentioned playing at 50. I don't think any of this will happen, just found it funny since my dad told me about it after he read it on a Portuguese site.

    He probably wont. His ego is too big to chance him looking like trash out there

    AI has been pushing for an NBA comeback.  Most would agree that MJ returning at the age of 50 - even if only for a single game - qualifies as the more interesting story.

    Hence, "move over AI."  

    Personally, as improbable as it may seem I'd still like to see him play during the last game of the year.  After the way the Wizards treated him, and given all he's done for the sport, I think it's only fitting that he go out on his own terms - wearing #23 for the final time as a member of his OWN team.  

    If anyone can do it, and if anyone deserves to do it, it's Michael Jordan.

    If he comes back it would be crazy. Everyone would be in a frenzy to see the game. It wont be the same.... It will never be the same.
