(*But where was Kanye? According to Drake, he couldn’t show up to do his “Forever” verse because he was “working on his project.” Riiight. So is Kanye shut out of awards shows and telethons until everyone forgets about the VMAs? Or was there an actual secret suspension period handed down by the music industry’s high command, like when Michael Jordan had to quit basketball because of his gambling addiction?)


Never thought about it til reading this but it kinda makes since. What better way for Stern to secretly punish the greatest to ever play?

"After the Jordan-led Chicago Bulls secured their third NBA Championship in a row, the NBA launched an investigation into Jordan's gambling habits to see whether he had violated league rules. Four months later, His Airness shocked the sports world by announcing his retirement from professional basketball."

personally i always thought there was something fishy with his first "break". Instead of suspending the best thing in the league, just have him retire for a little bit. To save him and the league from some major heat.

Oh, ya'll actually bought the 'my love for the game is gone' speech was real :rolleyes: fucck outta here. Stern knew that he had to move fast on the situation and this was the easiest way to save face for Mike and the NBA!

Stupid a.ss BX conspiracy theorists, can someone tell me why the league covered for MJ if he broke the rules, yet still suspended him? What would be the point of that? If they covered for him it was because of money, so why would they suspend him and lose money anyway. And can one of you please explain how his gambling caused his fathers death? I know theres no point of me asking cuz we all know there's no proof and thats why yall are conspiracy theorists, yall say random bulls**t with absolutely no proof what so ever.

Who loses the desire to play the game of basketball?? A game you cherish so dearly to play a sport you suck at called baseball. U claim to have done it because your father saw you as a baseball player and he liked the sport we dont believe you n*gga . Its like in his heart he knew he caused his fathers death somehow and he wanted to lay low.


One stain on Jordan’s otherwise clean image was the allegation that he had a compulsive gambling problem. The NBA cleared him in 1993, after conducting two investigations. But today, Jordan admits he’s made some reckless choices at the gambling table with his money.

"Yeah, I’ve gotten myself into situations where I would not walk away and I’ve pushed the envelope. Is that compulsive? Yeah, it depends on how you look at it. If you’re willing to jeopardize your livelihood and your family, then yeah," says Jordan.

The interviewer didn't say anything about family. Sounds like hes guilty to me
