p.s. New Orleans Hornets? When did that happen?

But he's stunting his young teammates' development! Michael rules. Forever shall he reign. He is the guy I will describe to my great grandchildren and nieces and nephews when I'm toothless in the rocking chair.

Kirk, you serious? The move to New Orleans was well publicized, enough so that I - a non basketball fan - knew it was happening (unlike the Memphis Grizzlies, my genuine reaction to that was just like Kirk's). Eh, timing. Jordan is God. I still wish he stayed retired though.

I wish he hadn't retired in the first place. I have sometimes wondered if the whole reason he retired a second time wasn't because he wanted to do exactly what he is now doing with the Wizards. The man is amazing.

Jordan still isn't retired? You mean he didn't score 50 points? Ok, nevermind, I just have the Monday pissers.
