Jalen Rose Says Michael Jordan to Play in a Charlotte Bobcats Game (VIDEO)

Former NBA player and current ESPN personality Jalen Rose — based on who knows what — predicts that owner Michael Jordan will make a brief comeback to the NBA this season. Rose says that MJ will hoop for his team, the Charlotte Bobcats, in one game.

    Jalen Rose is just the worst

    If this is true IDK man. I’d love to see MJ play again, I love the guy, he’s god to me, but at the same time I don’t think that would be the best for the Bobcats. How are you gonna take them seriously after that? I don’t know, it would make the team look like the Globe Trotters or something, you can do that during an All Star game, but during the season? I mean it’s gonna sell jerseys and will make Charlotte the center of a big story but it wouldn’t be right IMO.

  • pposse

    i would fly to charlotte and spend money i dont have to watch MJ play a game for the bobcats!

  • Ryan Seavey

    Jalen Rose has an IQ of 23

  • Saleem Rainman

    MJ isnt relinquishing his title of- whatever it is that he is, owner,manager- whatever to play again, last time he did he got screwed over by the Wizards. Especially not for one game. smh @ this.

    really? i don’t agree with everything he says, not even close to it sometimes. but he is bringing a lot of entertainment and insight and a former players perspective to a lot of stuff.

  • Dundler

    Nah, he panders. Everything he says is either to garner attention or is some personal stuff he has against someone.
    Theres plenty of former players who give actual insight and better perspective

    Jalen Rose is clearly doing his best impression of a Chris Palmer tweet.

  • spit hot fiyah

    yeah will definitely go at d’antoni over personal stuff. and yes, plenty of former players have insights, i just like the arena that he is able to express it in. (i haven’t seen him much on tv at all, mostly his grantland stuff)

  • anon

    Word. And he airing out a lot of personal, private business about players. And for what? So he can look like an insider?

    If I was an NBA player, I wouldn’t ever be “champaigning and campaigning” with Jalen. Can’t party with a cat who’s gonna tell the whole world about it on his podcast.

  • Ugh

    I doubt he’d screw himself over, somehow.

    The actual problem with this story is that players can’t own shares in a team, let alone majority shares. He’d have to sell the team, which would require league authorisation, brokerage fees, taxes, etc etc, and then buy it back after one game.

    So, no. I don’t think it’s happening.

  • johnny

    I’d love to see them play with 51 Year old MJ.

  • The Mauve Avenger

    His Charlotte jersey would be the best seller on earth if he did.

  • Clos1881

    Not happening

  • Clos1881

    I disagree with most of you jalen was great on the fab 5 documentary and his podcast is excellent

  • The Seed

    Who cares, not to be mean. MJ go run your North Carolina franchise, please you diminish your career enough in a Wizards jersey.

  • zn7

    Realistically he can still compete in the half court. Someone make him join FIBA3x3 world championships please.

  • Adam Webber

    I bet it be a preseason game if he did

  • JibbsIsBallin

    Is Rose hinting that Jordan could pull Flint Tropics move?

  • JibbsIsBallin

    Would be Bobcats only sold out game the whole season.

    People its all entertainment. Couldnt it be that Jalen know you MJ Nuts will give the show more attention ?

  • https://twitter.com/jasontichenor Mr. Wet
