6-time NBA champion Michael Jordan announced that after years of time away from the game, he will make an attempt to come back and play for the Charlotte Hornets, the team he co-owns.
Jordan, 51, held a press conference earlier today and shocked sports journalists and fans alike with the possible game-changing announcement.
“After being out of the game more than ten years, and hearing so much talk about Kobe Bryant passing up my all-time point total, I’ve decided to make myself available to my team as a player. I can still shoot the rock, did y’all doubt that?” Jordan said as he laughed.
Jordan went on to explain that it was actually Hornets coach Steve Clifford who talked him into suiting up in a Hornets uniform.
“For the last couple of years, I’ve gotten out there a couple times a week during practice, Steve has always joked about me getting back on the court for real,” explained Jordan. “Then, right before the season started, I had a really good scrimmage where I just crushed most of the guys, and that planted the seed in my mind.”
Jordan, who passed his physical, is expected to be in uniform and on the bench ready to play within the next 2 or 3 weeks.

This is not true. It's a joke. The only report is from EmpireNews.com which is a satire site like the Onion. This is also the same site that posted the story going around that Ray Rice was signed by Denver. Please check before posting. This is about the 5th story that people have posted online claiming it's a true story and the only one reporting it was EmpireNews. Come on people. Just because you see it on the web doesn't mean it's true.
