    MJ isn't old for golf. He's not playing against the pros. I regularly play with guys who shoot their age and I think that's one of the ultimate goals for any golfer. That said, it's repetition and will power that drives a guy over 70 to still play par golf.

    One guy is over 80 now, but has shot his age over 700 times, first time when he was 68. Watching him play at such a high level, granted he's hitting from the seniors' tees, is one of the most fascinating things I've ever seen. I'm 59 now and shooting my age someday is a huge goal. MJ has a great chance to do it, if he can remain healthy. He should give up the cigars.

    Pippen did the surgery late because of ****ty ownership. MJ should have applauded him because early season games are worthless.

    As far as benching himself, it was a developing moment for him. Everyone says that it was humbling to him and he would come along as a leader. And how can Jordan talk about something he wasn't involved with?

    What? Pippen literally said he would have done it again (sitting out the final play). He had a chance right there to say otherwise. And you don't have to be involved with that play to know that it was a bad move.

    As far as delaying his surgery goes. Yes it was a personal thing to get at onwership. In the end it didn't matter but it did cost the Bulls home court advantage in the finals that year.

    It may have cost them.

    They had the same record as the Jazz. With pippen all year they would have won another game.

    Likely, but that's assuming something else doesn't happen. Like maybe Pippin reinjures it and misses time anyway. You don't really know what would happen, you can say likely but you can't straight up blame him.

    You can't be like if Jordan didn't have gambling debt that forced him to leave basketball for baseball the Bulls would have won 8 in a row.
