So the word of the day from the NBA: Give up 23 so that Michael Jordan’s legacy as the greatest NBA player in history will be maintained. Read the full story here and comment below on this stupid idea. Poor MJ. Doesn’t he have enough attention already?
There is an effort underway to get every NBA player who wears number 23 to return it to the club. An entire league with a retired #23 jersey is the idea. The idiot Lebron James is leading the effort just because. What do I think of it as a girl?
I hate the idea. It’s bad enough looking at all those silly jerseys for my own team hanging from the rafters and nodding when the boytoy points. I’ve only vaguely heard of most of the losers. Especially when you go back a couple decades the obscurity gets a little ridiculous. I mean who really cares about Elgin Hayes in 2009?
The idea of seeing Michael Jordan’s jersey number hanging from the rafters at the Oakland Arena is ludicrous. The Warriors suck enough. Who needs to be reminded by disallowing our lousy players from wearing the number 23 jersey of Michael Jordan? I say rub it in the face of Bulls fans that we don’t care about that golfing boob.
That’s only the first problem. The second problem is what the hell to do with the second coming of MJ. Are we to retire the jersey of every generational player who comes around? What about the next Koby? What about the next Shaq? What about Kareem or Wilt?
No thanks. Who would wish that burden on our children to retire future numbers for every team. They have enough burdens already. Just getting a job is enough so I don’t have to pay for their damn college education.
Enough of the idea! Says the NBA: Give up 23. I say give up the NBA. Go Sharks! Besides he wasn’t all that great. All hype, just see the video.
