“I can’t wait to share my love for basketball with the basketball fans in Manila,” says MJ. “This is sure to be an experience that no one will ever forget.” The basketball tour, dubbed “I’m Back” is an idea to connect Michael Jordan with his fans all over Asia and to finally make his fans’ dreams come true.

Jordan had this to say at an impromptu press conference at the Hornets' practice facility:

"After more than a decade away from the game, I'm electing to end my retirement and resume my career as an NBA player."

When asked why he had arrived at this decision, especially so late in the season, Jordan said:

"I may be 53 years old, but I'm confident I can play against anyone, anywhere, at any time. And there's no way I'm going to just stand by while Kobe sits above me on the all-time scorers list."

With only a few regular season games left on the schedule and tough competition in the East in the playoffs, Jordan pledged to use these next few weeks to springboard towards a grander return next season where he guaranteed a championship for Charlotte in 2017.
