    Kyrie Irving will not be replacing Rajon Rondo as a starter in the All-Star game. Lebron James will be starting at the point, and Chris Bosh will replace him at power forward in the starting lineup.

    Because, you know, Miami needs to continue to piss off Cleveland sports fans.

    it's not like they're the ones who made that decision i don't think. wouldn't that be on the coach?

    Yes. And who is the coach of the Eastern All-Stars?

    i'm assuming spoelstra, based on that comment. but unless lebron specifically asked to start at point, i doubt that he and bosh had much of anything to do with it.

    So, Michael Jordan, who turns fifty tomorrow, has a ready plan to train for another comeback. Which is good, because he thinks he's the best player the Bobcats have, which is something he proved when he beat their rookie in a game of 1-on-1.

    Now, as entertained as I am at the thought of a Jordan comeback. I'm equally frightened of it.

    That's inspiring. Because, Barkley is also just turning 50. And the 76ers could use him right now...

    Count me in.

    Kobe scores 81? Pshaawwww. Wilt Chamberlain dropped 100 against the Knicks 50 years earlier. I know he's dead now, but his corpse would make a great coach.

    i don't think barkley's in as good of shape as jordan...

    and frankly, nothing jordan does would surprise me. i know i'd at least want to watch to see what happens. with all the rule changes, he very well might be able to, if not start every game, make a difference. although why in the world he'd play for the bobcats is beyond me...

    if i were going for that kind of comeback, i'd want it to be on a somewhat better team i think... although it's jordan. he'd probably be trying to make them a contender.

    It would be the same reason as why he played for the Wizards a while back. They weren't really going anywhere, so it would be easier for him to step in and show everyone up than it would be on a contender.

    i'm just imagining if he went to the heat... that might be funny, in all honesty. would upset the apple cart i'm pretty sure though.

    BUT HE BEAT KIDD-GILCHRIST IN A MEANINGLESS 1-TO-1 TOM

    after hearing this news i randomly youtubed Jordan and re-watched the last quarter of his last ever game for the Bulls. man, what a sweet end to that Utah game

    At what point does Jordan's legendary psychopathicness gets less respect? He's got to stop with crap like this, or even hinting at it... it's just sad. And speaking of sad things, why can't All Star Saturday just be the 3-point competition, the slam dunk contest (which needs some serious overall), and a H-O-R-S-E contest (they need to bring that back with some serious rule changes)? I can't think of anything more useless than the shooting stars & skill competition exhibition.

    No. :p Magic Johnson got all sorts of crap for that abomination of late night show he did in the 90's, and he deserved it! Legendary sports status can't always excuse ridiculousness.

    It is kind of hilarious that the NBA scheduled All - Star Weekend on Jordan's 50th birthday. They had to know this kind of comeback crap was coming from the Jordan camp.

    well, as far as i know he hasn't actually said anything about it. it was just glover saying something in relation to his HOF speech. more or less, isn't it? i mean, i really don't think he'd do it.

    Well this is Jordan we're talking about. A man with an ego that really only Kobe can match in the NBA.
