Jordan Returns, Well At Least For One Practice

Allen Iverson wasn’t such a big fan of practice, but it seems like Chicago Bulls’ legend Michael Jordan is.

Jordan, the Charlotte Bobcats owner, suited up for practice on Thursday, participating in a full-court scrimmage and showing a few of the old moves that helped make him a six-time NBA champion and Hall of Famer.

Forward Gerald Wallace said Jordan “still has it.” He said his quickness is fading, but “the last thing to ever go is your jump shot and he has that.”

Jordan, who turns 48 next week, has been spending more time at practices and shootarounds of late. Thursday’s practice was his most involved yet.

Just don’t expect another comeback. Jordan sat slumped in a chair with bags of ice strapped to both knees at the end of the workout.
