Michael Jordan maintained a healthy, albeit slightly private, existence since his retirement in 2003. Until then, the living basketball legend hardly makes a significant limelight appearance despite surfacing succinctly in the press and media.
In honor of his decent and practically clean-slated post-retirement reputation, the Daily Evergreen dedicated a speculative report of his senior years. Post-dated in the year 2046, forty years following the 2003 retirement, Michael Jordan is portrayed comically as an over-achieving senior citizen off the basketball court. The article chose Greensboro (North Carolina) as MJ's address, where he outshines every elderly tenant in activities like cooking and baking while beating his co-residents soundly in the game of Bingo.
Fortunately, 27 years from now is still too distant to muse on MJ's life as a retiree. Presently, the 'magic of Mike' still proves a powerful spell to resist and fans still revere him as a basketball icon that present superstar players emulate.
One of the latest developments about MJ behind the scenes was reported by Fox Sports News. Fellow retired NBA player Kenny Smith told a story about a meeting of reconciliation between Michael Jordan and retired NBA superstar Charles Barkley. The two icons have never spoken to each other for years until their impromptu reunion in New York at the Broadcasting and Cable Hall of Fame.
What's next for Magic Mike? People can only wonder. It goes without saying that the iconic billionaire pensioner is currently busy living a spectacular life, while smoothly 'driving through a solid line-up of press sensationalists'.
NBA has produced stellar record-holding athletes like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 point scores), Wilt Chamberlain (23,924 rebounds) and John Stockton (15,806 assists). Though MJ has not surpassed these numeral benchmarks, he's the name that current legends Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Chris Bosh are vying to come after.
