    NO MORE AIR

    E a treia oară când se va scrie chestia asta, probabil după ce se va încheia sezonul.
    Dar aseară a devenit sigur că Jordan nu va fi în playoff.
    Mi-aș fi dorit să mă păcălesc singur de 1 aprilie, să fie adevărat că Jordan va mai juca și la anul.
    Mai mult ca sigur că iarăși vor fi pagini întregi se superlative.
    Se vor găsi cu siguranță mulți care să se întrebe: Oare nu o să mai joace? Acum nu cred că va mai exista acel 1% pe care Jordan tot timul l-a lăsat pentru suspansul publicului.
    Un lucru e cert: Nu va fi altul ca el.
    Nu din punct de vedere al cifrelor. Ci din punct de vedere al eleganței în joc. Și al concentrării în "crunch time".
    Anul asta la meciurile lui Jordan s-a jucat cu casa închisă în aproape toate orașele (dacă nu chiar în toate). Nici la meciurile campionilor Lakers nu s-a petrecut acest lucru peste tot. NBA va mai trăi o perioadă din imaginea lui Jordan. Dar după aia?
    Întrebare: Cine va duce NBA-ul mai departe, cine va reuși să facă ce a făcut Jordan pentru po****ritatea NBA?

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Although he couldn't take the Washington Wizards to the playoffs in two years as a player, Michael Jordan brought sellouts, big profits and national TV exposure to a listless franchise.

    Jordan plays his last home game Monday when the Wizards host the New York Knicks, and owner Abe Pollin could be forgiven for taking a long gaze during the game at a sight unimaginable pre-MJ: an 84th consecutive sellout.

    ``Nobody talked about the Washington Wizards,'' coach Doug Collins said. ``They were a 19-win organization. And all of a sudden, everybody's watching the Wizards on TV. We're the No. 1 road team in the NBA. (Friday night in Miami) was the biggest crowd in the history of the American Airlines Arena. Cleveland had two sellouts -- they were us. That's the way it's been. That's what Michael brings.''


    The Wizards were barely on anyone's radar before Jordan came to town. They haven't won a playoff game since 1988 and haven't won a playoff series since 1982. They were known more for shoestring budgets and bad trades -- Chris Webber for Mitch Richmond? Ben Wallace for Ike Austin? They hadn't been on network TV for years, and their average announced attendance of about 15,000 seemed like fuzzy math given all the empty seats.

    With Jordan in uniform, every game has sold out, and nearly all 20,000 seats have been filled. Wizards merchandise is a hot commodity, as long as there's a No. 23 on it. TNT and ABC have roamed the hallways. The games have been compelling largely because Jordan is such a fierce competitor.

    ``Every game, there's electricity,'' Collins said. ``Every team is wanting to beat Michael. There was no night where teams didn't play hard against us.''

    The Wizards plan a ceremony for Jordan's final game. He's already been feted by the rest of the league, with special tributes at most of his final games at other arenas.

    Still, Jordan said he's thinking of the game more as a farewell to the league, not specifically to the Wizards. After all, he played 13 years and won six titles with the Chicago Bulls.

    During a video tribute in Miami, it was notable that every Jordan highlight was in a Bulls uniform -- except one clip at the end in which Jordan was waving to the crowd in his Wizards gear.

    ``I only got a chance to play two years here,'' Jordan said. ``I take this and enjoy it obviously, playing in front of fans I used to play against, and try to bring a certain joy to the game.''

    Now that the Wizards' playoff hopes are gone, Jordan can take time to soak in the farewells he was previously reticent to embrace. He's down to two games remaining, with a Wednesday trip to Philadelphia marking the end of his career.

    ``Right now, we can't make the playoffs, but I'm just going to go out and have a good time,'' Jordan said. ``I'm enjoying what's left of my career. It's going fast. It's going very fast. That's what good things do.''

    Washington doesn't expect to lose Jordan altogether. He has said his first choice is to return as president of basketball operations, the job he held before his second comeback. The only hitch would be if Pollin for some reason can't work out an acceptable deal with the player who put the franchise on the map.

    ``We've got a good base with a bunch of young players,'' Jordan said. ``Now we've got to keep building.''

    aici era hai să zicem într-un "perfect fit"... da mie mi-a plăcut mai mult prin 96-97-98 când mai pusese ceva masă și i se mai asprise figura... nu mai avea fața aia de copil... avea așa un "leadership" în el...

    Oricum din punct de vedere atletic cred că putea să facă orice sport... se putea pregăti pentru orice...

    Și nu mai aduceți vorba de el că iar îmi pare rău că nu-l mai văd pe teren... iar iau casetele la rând... nu știu ce dracu o să fac când o trebui să dau posterele jos ca să zugrăvesc

    Jordan ar fi trebuit sa se retraga atunci cand s-a retras ultima data (la sfarsitul anilor '90) cand era in plina glorie. Acum se vede ca nu mai este jucatorul care a fost odata. Pacat!!!

    Love of the game!

    Era chiar in pericol sa-i scada media ppg la sub 30.1, deci sa treaca pe locul 2 dupa Wilt "The Stilt, The Big Dipper" Chamberlain. Cred insa ca "his love of the game" l-a atras. Si nu te poti opune. Poate il interesa mai mult sa joace decat statisticile.
