He retired from the Wizards. He quit the Bulls twice. Jordan did quit after game 6. He himself was quoted as saying I quit basketball to play baseball.

You can sugarcoat that however fits your narrative. He quit basketball and his team due to stress. That’s what it boils down to.

For folks comparing her to MJ. MJ was much further into his career than Simone, right? He won his first Championship in '91, after entering the league in '84. He was 28. Those 4 years are huge in terms of development and maturity.

Just saying, if we are going apples to apples, Simone and MJ are not in the same time and place maturity wise. Neither is Tim Brady. I think he was 27 or 28 when he won his first SB.

I didn't know anyone was calling her "the goat". I didn't realize she had a bidazzled goat on her leotard either. And at the end of the day, this just seems like another issue everyone wants to be decisive over that isn't necessary. Her dropping out is why even if you are second string, you train hard. When you moment comes, you better be ready to shine. And it looks like the 2nd stringer nailed that role. Congrats to Jade Carey. Way to work hard and be ready when the opportunity arose!

Wth are you talking about? Jordan did not quit after a game 6. He actually returned for the playoffs in 95 to try and help his yeam win. In order for this to even be comperable Biles would have had to pull out prior to the start of the games.

Billy, you've been around long enough to know that ol' JJ's sole purpose of posting on ANY thread on ANY subject is just to pot stir and get a rise out of people. He has exactly ZERO positive contribution to anything on TBH. Just ignore his drivel... As long as someone will engage him, he'll hang around... He don't like arguing with himself... If you ignore him, he'll go away and try to poke his nose into some other thread to get his pleasures...

She quit. I really dont care what her reasons were. She chose to take a spot on the team then quit.
She quit a spot some other young lady worked hard for but was edged out by her.
There is no excuse or reason, other than serious physical injury or death, that I find acceptable. You don't quit in the middle of the game or season otherwise.
I hope it doesnt end up as some BLM protest or something.
But she has hurt her credibility with me.

I dont disagree but she cheated another athlete out of a spot she'd worked her whole life for as well.
We played a summer league of softball when I had a hernia. I wore two pair of comprehension shorts and held my intestines in with my right hand and fielded with the other. That was for a trophy and a cheap T shirt. When season ended I had the repair done and returned to work 5 days after surgery. I was an industrial mechanic and a crew leader running maintenance at two plants with three crews including running the fabrication shop.
You don't quit on your team. You suck it up and finish. Win, lose or draw.

Looks like she is feeling somewhat better now.....................Going to compete in the individual balance beam competition now????????

I am so confused, you quit the team, you drop out of the individual rounds and now change your mind and re-enter the individual rounds for one event? When did she qualify for the individual event?

Can you tell I do not know much about gymnastics????

yeah, she quit. she shouldn't even have the option. you are either in or out. just imagine the stress you are putting on your teamates and alternates. its beyond selfish. i'm tired of hearing her name on the news, she shouldnt be getting any air time at this point and the focus should be on the team and the ones that didn't QUIT

If your comment is focused towards me or my post, I am not arguing anything! I am not educated enough on the sport or her health to argue it.

She qualified for all the individual events and dropped out of each individual event as they started. The balance beam hasn't started yet so she hadn't dropped out of it yet. Crazy that she dropped out of all the others and is now participating in the hardest, most challenging, pressure packed event.



Glad to see the alternates step up and shine whether it be gold or silver.

I didn’t say anything prior because I am not educated regarding gymnastics. However, you would have to be living under a rock to not have heard all about her the past week. Then I heard she is coming back to compete in an event??? In my opinion, she shouldn’t even have the option. She quit. Argue about her reasons or lack thereof and if it was justified, but she quit regardless. And now there shouldn’t even be a possibility for her to compete this year because she already quit for “mental health” reasons.

I read what Mike Rowe had to say about this and I tend to agree with the way he put it. In a nutshell, I can't believe that people are celebrating her as heroic when she quit. If she had something going on, then cool, but that doesn't exclude her from being a quitter. And either way, why is it celebrated?
