    Yes, but only if Wilt Chamberlain also returns.

    If he is giving away his salary for those in need then go for it. Usually though, I would say he should not because you should always retire on top. If he has a bad season, he probably won't be remembered as well as if he just retired.

    Not. A storyline possibly better than any film should have been left alone. I believe it will only diminish the legend that is Jordan.

    I want to say no. But, he still has the talent to play basketball at the highest level. He won't be as good as before, that much is true...but, I seriously doubt if it will be a disgraceful or humbling season for him. So, coming back is not a bad decision.

    No, but I'm not Micheal Jordan. Do I support his decision? Yes. If David Lean, Alfred Hitchcock, or Akira Kurosawa were still alive today, would you tell them not to come out of retirement?

    We have yet to see him play a single game since his announced return. So how can you possibly know? Isn't this sorta like giving opinions/reviews of movies without seeing them?
    However, if Jordan is only half as good as he used to be he will still be better than MOST players currently in the NBA.

    I hope Jordan is smart enough to insert himself as a 2-guard (shooting guard) because I don't think he'll be able to cover the fast point guards on a nightly basis.

    I'll reserve judgement on this until after he actually plays.

    No, he's got nothing left to prove. But it's cool that he's donating his salary for this season to the WTC relief effort. I wish other players would follow this example. I mean, does a player really deserve or need all those millions of dollars a year?

    This is something I've always been curious about. Why people criticize NBA players for their salaries but say nothing about business executives making many millions more a year to head companies bleeding red ink as they fire thousands of workers?
    BTW even at 30 million a year Michael Jordan was underpaid.
