    ....to play for the Wizards next year. Just caught the end of the story on TNT, supposedly 90% likely but sounds like a very bad idea to me.

    I'm a huge Jordan fan, and I REALLY hope he isn't coming back. He ended his playing career in such an amazing way, anything now would only taint that.

    Nah, I don't see it happening - especially the Barkley part.

    Barkley's dumb enough to try a comeback, although I doubt he will.

    But Michael's not stupid. He knows he's finished. Although, if he did come back tomorrow, he'd probably still be better than the majority of the players. Doesn't say much about the state of the league...

    I agree that Mike probably won't lace them up again...although it would be fun to see some of these punks get put in their place...

    Here's a question;

    Why would MJ be doing 6 hour a day workouts in March if he plans to return to the game next season, which means around November?

    Doesn't make sense!!!

    If Mike couldn't hit the breaking ball (and he couldn't) in 1994 or 1995, he ain't hitting it in 2001.

    And Michael is certainly obsessive with his habits, but still, to be training this early (and this hard) for a season that doesn't start until November makes no sense. To play at the peak he'll demand of himself he'll need all the energy he can muster, and training this much in advance isn't going to help that.

    Of course, it's all moot at this point. I don't see him coming back.

    Reilly is full of crap...especially about Webber trading a title contender to play with Jordan just because he's Jordan...Now, if Mike wants to come to Sac...

    It's not that. Mike could come back and dominate but I don't think he would come back unless he was gonna win and if Pip and Phil were there too. Mike's thing is that he doesn't want to have to learn how to play with some of these guys. Not because he can't but because it would take to long for them to get accustomed to his style of play. Mike is an extremely competitive person and he WOULD come back if the circumstances were just too perfect, however I don't see that happening.

    Come on people, you'd think WE, Van Halen fans, would know how to deal with rumors....

    That's what I meant by "finished," red.

    He'd never find a set up like he did in Chi-town. He's not washed up, just finished playing.
