All eyes and cameras have been on Michael Jordan for the past month, so it's no surprise Page 2's Mystery Photo caught His Airness a little off-guard.

Michael Jordan

We figured you'd have plenty of ideas about what was going on with Jordan -- especially after his 5-for-26 shooting performance Sunday -- so Page 2 asked you to come up with some clever captions. You filled our mailbag with more than 1,300 responses.

Here's a look at some of the best caption suggestions from our readers.
