Michael Jordan just turned 50 and you would have had to have been in a coma to have missed that fact with all the celebration going on.
Much of the debate the past week has been about what Jordan would do to LeBron James or any other player in the prime of Jordan’s career. The question now though is what would MJ do today, right now if he was the starting shooting guard for the Charlotte Bobcats?
If you asked Jordan’s long time trainer Tim Grover, lets just say he has all the confidence in the world in Jordan. During a recent radio interview with WFNZ in Charlotte, Grover said not only would “Jordan be the Bobcats best player on the floor today, he’d still average 20 plus points.”
Tell me why you truly believe if he made a comeback, he’d be the best player on the Bobcats right now:
“First of all, the Bobcats are a very young team, so he knows how to create [things] and how to take away guys’ strengths. … Just the way he would compete, that if one of the players actually did beat him, he would take it so seriously that he would get himself in better shape and re-challenge that individual until he’d be able to beat him again. His skill set was so high. … I guarantee it’s still higher than most of the guys out there.”
What kind of numbers would he put up?:
“He’d average 20. Yeah, he’d average 20. … Listen, would he be able to go out and get through an 82-game season? One thing people also [forget], he had no major injuries. … But yes, Father Time is undefeated. But again, there’s so much advancement out there … in anti-aging and so forth, so it is possible. I don’t think that he would come back unless he was 100 percent ready.
I know most of my readers are going to say but it’s the Bobcats. Still to be 50 and average 20 in the league or be the best player on an NBA franchise.
I’m just saying.
