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.
BEST OF MAXIM
To the benefit of Illuminati conspiracy theorists everywhere, Lebron may or may not have flashed a hand sign similar to that of the "eye in the pyramid" gesture popularized by Jay-Z of rapping and Brooklyn Nets ownership fame.

Everyone knows that nobody plays defense in the NBA All-Star Game, but Kobe Bryant made one exception Sunday night.
Bryant came from behind to block a shot by LeBron James late in the fourth quarter of this year’s edition of the annual offensive showcase, leading to an easy dunk at the other end by Kobe’s Western Conference teammate, Kevin Durant.
Kobe and LeBron had — as usual...
Isiah Thomas has an opinion in the great debate between Michael Jordan and LeBron James. Thomas who was an all time great in the league told Waddle & Silvy on ESPN 1000 that he’s not sure who the better ball player is, but LeBron is the better athlete.
“They’re both great players, and they’re both great in their eras,” Thomas said on “The Waddle & Silvy Show”...

Wow, just crazy awesome to watch this video. Meet Eddie who is a geriatric sea otter at the Oregon Zoo. The Zoo had to teach Eddie how to play basketball to help with his arthritis in his elbows. Surprisingly he's really good. I'm guessing he would probably be able to beat LeBron James in a dunk contest, but we all know LeBron is too scared to enter one anyway. ...
MIAMI -- In their 25-year history, the Miami Heat have won two championships, including one last season. Now they're setting their sights on something they've never done.
The Heat never have had the NBA's best regular-season record.
But if the Heat and LeBron James continue to play the way they have lately, it could happen. The Heat (36-14), who play their first game...
Lil Wayne apologized to LeBron James for saying F**k LeBron James but said he isn’t sorry for what he said and won’t apologize for being him or, anything else that he said. In an interview with Miami’s interview with Miami’s Felisha Monet of 99 JAMZ, he said that he’s really cool with LeBron’s mom so he takes that back but nothing more.
Wayne also said that Dwyane...
Still confused as to why Lil Wayne seems to have waged all out war on the Miami Heat? Me too. Luckily for us, Hip-Hop 365 has a source who provides a theory to consider. Lil Wayne is allegedly upset because LeBron doesn’t want to be his friend? That’s just the tip of the iceberg:
According to a member of LeBron’s inner-circle who spoke on the condition of anonymity, Lil Wayne...
