There has been a rumor around for years that when Michael Jordan retired to play baseball he was actually suspended by the NBA for gambling.
On Tuesday evening former major leaguer Corey Koskie added fuel to that rumor’s fire.
Koskie said he played against MJ during spring training that year and that all the players were saying he was suspended by the NBA for gambling.

This is just the kind of confirmation this story needs. Especially in the middle of July as we wait for football season to get going.
This is a rumor that we not only want to believe, it’s one we wouldn’t be surprised if it was true. Let’s hope we get some actual proof.
