Synopsis

"Michael Jordan: The Final Conquest" is a compelling and controversial first-of-its-kind work by national bestselling author Michael Essany. This exclusive Kindle eBook explores in fascinating detail an intriguing prospect recently raised by 48-year-old Michael Jordan himself: Will the Chicago Bulls legend make one final NBA comeback at the age of 50 to prove that no feat or challenge is too great for the indomitable spirit of a true competitor?

This unauthorized and gripping read sheds light on the elusive life Michael Jordan has led since "retiring" from the Washington Wizards in 2003. Included are Michael Jordan's 2006 divorce, his majority stake acquisition of the Charlotte Bobcats, his questionable handling of the 2011-2012 NBA lockout, his engagement to longtime girlfriend Yvette Prieto, his rumored NBA comeback speculation, and what impact a 50-year-old Michael Jordan would ultimately have on the struggling game of professional basketball and his otherwise pristine legacy as the game's greatest player.

CHAPTER 1 EXCERPT

On February 17, 2013, Michael Jordan will be 50 years old.

On that day, Jordan will be the only 50-year-old on the active NBA roster.

And he will be the oldest player in the history of the game.

According to those who claim to have the inside track on Michael Jordan's deepest ambitions and mindset today, the man widely considered to be the greatest player in the history of basketball may not yet be finished with his storied legacy on the court.

"The game of basketball has been everything to me," Jordan said at his 2009 NBA Hall of Fame induction. "My refuge. My place I've always gone when I needed to find comfort and peace. It's been a source of intense pain, and a source of most intense feelings of joy and satisfaction. And one that no one can even imagine."

"Although I'm recognized with this tremendous honor of being in the basketball Hall of Fame - I don't look at this moment as a defining end to my relationship with the game of basketball," he said. "It's simply a continuation of something that I started a long time ago. One day you might look up and see me playing the game at 50. Oh don't laugh. Never say never. Because limits, like fears are often just an illusion."
