    Jordan was prone to a gambling problem. Think about it; Jordan is incredibly competitive and he probably took his competitiveness to the gambling tables.. You could be “good” at gambling but ultimately luck plays a big factor. So this is where his psychopathic tendencies kicked in and he got addicted to wanting to win at these games that ultimately required luck rather than skill.

    Jordan's dad was killed by the mob for gambling debts. Michael Francezes said it was totally true and being a capo in the mob...he would know!!!

    Some people believe Jordan's dad was killed because of mafia reasons because Jordan was a huge gambler.

    Jordan didn't retire for good in 1998. He played for the Wizards after that.
