ESPN analyst and former NBA veteran Jalen Rose is predicting 50-year-old Michael Jordan will make a one-game comeback with his Charlotte Bobcats at some point this season.
According to NESN.com, Rose made his bold prediction during a Grantland Network video broadcast alongside co-host Bill Simmons.
"I'll make a quick prediction for the Bobcats," Rose told a somewhat stunned Simmons."Michael Jordan's coming out of retirement and playing one game this year."
Even if Rose is on point with what the ultra-competitive Jordan might be thinking, the feat won't come nearly as easily as the Fab Five alum seems to make it sound. First, the NBA would need to temporarily waive its rule barring players from owning part of their own team, or Jordan would have to sell the team for a day or two with the promise he'd be able to buy it back - at which point it would be worth far more than when he sold it, since the team would now have Michael Jordan on the roster.
Jordan has dominated headlines over the last few days, including his candid proclamation that he would beat reigning MVP LeBron James in a game of one-on-one played while each of them was in their prime.
