Michael Jordan's brother believes the Bulls superstar is leaning toward returning to the NBA.
Larry Jordan said the shortened season, caused by the lockout, is more appealing to his brother than the regular 82-game grind, plus playoffs.
"Two months ago I would have said that there was no way he was coming back," Larry Jordan said while visiting North Carolina for his sports-card business. "But over the last two weeks, and since the season will be shortened by about 20 games, I think that would give him the perfect opportunity to get it out of his system."
"I think he's leaning toward coming back."
But if the lockout wipes out the entire season, Jordan would probably never play pro basketball again, his brother said.
