Sounds crazy doesn't it? Well, it kind of is, but I can dream can't I?
Earlier this week I reported that
The key word to that sentence was backup, but to this Bulls fan, it's still an exciting story.
Even though it is a backup plan, to me, this has the potential to be one of the biggest stories in the history of this fine institution. That's no hyperbole.
First of all, I'll start off at what the pessimists will say.
They will say that we shouldn't bring him in just because he is Michael Jordan's son.
They will say that bringing him to
If you say any of those things, you are wrong. Dead wrong. Here's why.
HE'S MICHAEL JORDAN'S SON!
Why shouldn't we bring him in because he's Michael Jordan's son should be the question. The fact that his dad is the greatest player ever to play the game should be an immediate upside to any school taking a look at Jeffrey. It's often said that to see what a boy will be like in his older years, look at his father. If his father is a class act, then the boy will more than likely be one as well.

In the end, we need to think about what is best for the kid at this point. Unfortunately, wherever Jeffrey Jordan ends up, a media circus will follow. Not because of Jeffrey, but because of who is father is.
While I've gotten you all excited,
the chances of Jeffrey actually ending up at
If you're like me, you don't care
how good Jeffrey Jordan is. You care about the
