    Hey everyone!! We wanted to try something new: Unsolved - Sports Conspiracies! We had such a fun time making it and hope you love it too. 🕵🏻 (don't worry -- Shane didn't go anywhere!)

    Every time I start getting back into the story it’s interrupted by what sounds like a 70 year old woman gasping for air in the middle of a crying fit! Maybe don’t break up the story so much guys. Very distracting.

    Uhhh.... three words. HIS... FATHERS....... DEATH!

    Maybe his gambling cost him his father. Why is it so wrong to draw the conclusion? Jordan was a notorious welcher. He used to stiff big gamblers often telling them ‘what are you gonna do, I’m Michael Jordan’

    Let's get it straight once and for all Jordan became a 3peater twice because of Birds retirement and te dismantle of the bad boys so in reality if Bird didnt retire and the NBA didnt fire pistons head coach Chuck Dayly there wouldn't be no 3peat for Jordan and if Jordan would have lost to Utah like the NBA told him to lose his father would be alive today...

    The NBA forced Jordan out because they did not want the bulls to tie boston's eight titles in a row.

    Mj definitely stepped away from b-ball due to his gambling and his fathers death. It was just too much heat and whisperings about the mob as well. Mafia Legend Michael Franceze spoke on it lightly in his interview with Patrick Bet-David of Valuetainment Tv (excellent interview btw) just too bad we’ll never know the FULL story..

    My god. There is nothing suspicious about it. Mike loves baseball. He and his Father had a dream of him playing Major League Baseball. His Father was murdered. He decides to chase his dream. The NBA is gonna kick out their most lucrative asset of all time?? Did any of you live through this?

    His Dad who he was also very close to was murdered just right after his 3 peat and his peak .Makes sense to me and the murderers were thugs in Lumberton while sleeping on the side of the road.I live very close by to this town can be dangerous

    The question must be did JORDAN bet on basketball, and possibly throw games?? His drive to win and dominate is to a point of being a sever psychological condition. He wouldnt lose a game for all the money in the world. At the very worst he was a degenerate gambler who wanted to win at everything he did. During a friendly card game with his friend and friends mom, Jordan was caught cheating! Cheating an old lady at cards cuz u wanna win so bad!!!!! Yup psychological condition. Lol. Im a bulls fan, and MJ is god.

    his dad was murdered you idiots! he was honoring him. His dad wanted him to play baseball, but jordan found basketball. MORONS.

    This is the truth!! Jordan was forced out of the NBA because the commissioner of basketball, was concerned with his gambling problem!! Ironically Jordan and his main enemy Isaiah Thomas both had problems and the league even investigated both of them. Basically for conflict of interest!! Rumors were starting up, that they could have been shaving points and ect ect!!!

    uh im gonna say it was theory #1 and he just wanted to go try baseball and when it didn't work out he came back to basketball. he wanted something to challenge him and basketball wasn't challenging enough for him anymore and baseball would have been. plus his dad wanting him to play baseball of course.
