Michael Jordan might not be planning another comeback now that he’s hit 50 years old. But, just for fun’s sake, how do you think he’s do if he did return to the court? Well, M.J.’s personal trainer has an opinion. In an interview with WFNZ in Charlotte (compiled here by Sports Radio Interviews), Tim Grover said that he believes not only could Jordan still score 20 points a night if given the opportunity, but that he would be the Charlotte Bobcats’ best player if he came back. “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,” said Grover. “His skill set was so high. … I guarantee it’s still higher than most of the guys out there.” “He’d average 20. Yeah, he’d average 20.” To be sure, the topic of Jordan’s current physical shape has been oft talked about with his just-passed 50th birthday. Moreover, compa

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Annihilates Greg Monroe

Could He Really Comeback?

via “One day you might look up and see me playing the game at 50. (Crowd Laughs) Oh don’t laugh. Never say never. Because limits, like fears are often just an illusion.” That was the way the greatest basketball player of all time closed out his hall of fame speech in 2009, by leaving the door open. Over the years basketball junkies tried to imagine if Michael...

Michael Jordan’s Trainer Says He Would Be Bobcats Best Player Right Now

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...

Walker, Henderson lead Bobcats past Magic

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The last time the Charlotte Bobcats were in Orlando, an injury forced Byron Mullens to watch as his teammates scrapped their way to a narrow win.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist dunks all over Greg Monroe (VIDEO)

MKG defied...

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Slams It Hard On Greg Monroe

The Bobcats lost their 41st game of the year, but Michael Kidd-Gilchrist gave fans something to cheer about in the 4th quarter with a mean throw down on Pistons’ Greg Monroe:


As the Trade deadline approaches, will the Bobcats get this man some help?  Time will tell as we come down to the wire. A road win under the belt with a trio of players dropping in at least 20 points each. If there’s a better way to come home to part two of a back to back I can’t think of it. Add to that the knowledge that you will be facing a team that you have already...
