08:10 AM ET 08.15 | Michael Jordan has responded to Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf's weekend comments comparing Derrick Rose's injury situation to the one Jordan experienced in 1985. Jordan admitted his viewpoint has changed from the time he was a player to his current role as owner of the Charlotte Bobcats. "I have a unique perspective," Jordan told ESPNChicago.com. "I've been a player, I've been in that scenario, and I would definitely consult with the player and I would never take his opinion, desire or feelings for granted. You have to factor that in." ... Jordan remembers it well and said he was annoyed with Reinsdorf and then-general manager Jerry Krause for not allowing him back as soon as he wanted, then limiting his participation.

That's because with age comes wisdom.

Knowledge is experiences, knowing...

Wisdom is what you do with that knowledge!

Why don't you worry about your team, Jordan, and leave the real decisions to the adults?

Doc didn't get to where he is by giving it away!I asked him earlier this year how he handled the pan handlers in NY and he said "Are there no prisons? Where are the workhouses?"

And he has pockets full of money because he shops at: http://www.shoppingone.org
