Michael Jordan retires from the NBA
Letting the "Air" out of the NBA
We all knew this day would eventually come, but that certainly makes the pill no easier to swallow. On January 13, Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan announced that he has decided to call it quits. And this time, it's for good.
On the bright side, the league should at least be a little more competitive without Jordan and the Bulls. The Houston Rockets and Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler reaped the rewards of Jordan's first retirement. Now with number 23 out of the league for good, maybe future hall of famers Charles Barkley, John Stockton, Karl Malone or Patrick Ewing can finally win the ultimate prize.
