MJ is officially back -- scores 41 points

It's now official. Michael Jordan is back in the NBA.

He scored 41 points in Saturday night's exhibition against the New Jersey Nets, on 15-24 shooting.

"I showed the confidence that I had when I committed to come back in play," Jordan told the Washington Post. "That was some good gratification of the hard work that I've put in since January. . . . I'm not bad for a 38-year-old man."
