These Sports Stars Pushed Restart on Their Careers

On Monday, Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian ever, announced he is ending his retirement and coming back to swimming, competing in the Arena Grand Prix in Mesa, Arizona, on April 24-26th. Phelps isn't the first athlete to come out of retirement and certainly won't be the last. It's crazy to think that many sports stars, like Michael Jordan and Floyd Mayweather, have come out of retirement twice. Here, BET.com takes a look at athletes who ended their retirement and gave their careers a second wind.  (Photo: FRANCOIS XAVIER MARIT/AFP/GettyImages)
