At the press conference when he was asked if he would ever return he said, " Five years down the road, if the urge comes back, if the Bulls will have me, if David Stern lets me back in the league, I may come back."
I don't think anyone could possibly believe Jordan would give up an NBA salary and everything around it in order to ride a Greyhound and stay in Motel 6s to play Double A baseball for $400 a week.
Yes and many have said his fathers murder may have something to do with it. Punishment from Him not paying up. Tons of money but he prob just said Im MJ and i dont owe you anything.
Believe what you want but again only he knows for sure.
