Michael Jordan

  1. What four guys would Jordan choose for a pickup game? Pippen, Magic, Worthy, Olajuwon

    Nov 13, 2013, 8:29 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    Fairly safe to say Michael Jordan in his prime could have selected me, Seth Rogen, Sammy Hagar and Dave Navarro and we would win virtually every game and stay on the court. But when the folks at NBA 2K asked him (as they promote the 2K14 Next Gen features) he went a different direction. The four…

  2. Michael Jordan’s Chicago mansion going up for auction

    Oct 18, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Jordan house

    If you really want to be like Mike, drinking Gatorade isn’t enough. You need to buy his home. Michael Jordan’s Chicago mansion — and that really doesn’t do it justice, this is a compound — will be auctioned off next month, reports the Wall Street Journal (its readership might be able to afford the home).…

  3. Gary Payton explains why he believes John Stockton was harder to guard than Michael Jordan

    Sep 8, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Gary Payton, John Stockton

    Gary Payton made some waves earlier this week when he said that John Stockton was the hardest player he ever had to guard, and was a tougher matchup for him than even Michael Jordan. Many recognize Jordan as one of the greatest of all time, of course, while Stockton is remembered as more of a…

  4. LeBron James talks winning his second title, watching “24″

    Jun 24, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    LeBron James sat down with Rachel Nichols of CNN to talk what it was like winning his second title (he’s celebrated more and tried to soak it in this time) and why this one was harder than the first one. He also talks about getting through the NBA Finals watching old Michael Jordan title runs…

  5. It’s official: Michael Jordan says Bobcats to become Hornets again

    May 21, 2013, 7:44 PM EDT

    Charlotte Hornets logo

    UPDATE 7:44 pm: Michael Jordan stepped on stage and made it official. Saying he wanted to “bring the buzz back” to Charlotte, he confirmed that the Bobcats will change their names to the Hornets. The goal is to have that in place by the start of the 2014-15 season (they will play one last season…

  6. Alonzo Mourning says Scottie Pippen says LeBron would “kick Jordan’s ass”

    May 20, 2013, 11:52 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The video above was a reminder to Alonzo Mourning that there is no privacy anymore. Not anywhere. (And if you think Jordan’s legacy would be the same in today’s world of cell phone video and 24-hour news/blog cycle as it was in his era… you should ask Steve Kerr about that rock show on the…

  7. Chris Paul’s shoe closet is bigger, has more Jordans than yours

    Mar 26, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    chris-paul-sneaker-room

    So, I’m thinking Chris Paul is a sneakerhead. That photo you see to the right is from one of the bedrooms in his Los Angeles area home that was converted into a shoe closet. Seriously. Then again what else was he going to do with hundreds and hundreds of Jordans. Our own D.J. Foster would…

  8. For his 50th, a compilation of Jordan’s 50 greatest plays (VIDEO)

    Feb 17, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    2009_04_jordan_hof

    You can’t go wrong with along string of Michael Jordan highlights. Don’t quibble with the order or talk about how he pushed off on Byron Russell (he did), just enjoy the greatness. I’d say guys like him don’t come around very often, but frankly guys like him simply don’t come around again period. There will…

  9. Michael Jordan’s shorts ruffle feathers at stuffy Miami country club. Good.

    Nov 28, 2012, 12:41 PM EDT

    Jordan golf

    Some will look at this as a story of Michael Jordan and his feeling of entitlement. And truth be told there is some of that here. Jordan wears his entitlement like a Rolex. But if Jordan is pissing off some up-tight, old rich people in Miami then I’m good with it. It all comes down to…

  10. David Stern was all business, and that was good for the game

    Oct 25, 2012, 10:37 PM EDT

    NBA Commissioner Stern holds a news conference before Game 1 of the NBA Finals basketball series between the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat in Miami

    David Stern said Thursday as he talked about stepping down as commissioner that he is not a big fan of the “L”word — legacy. So we’ll call it his story. It could make a good novel. David Stern’s story is a uniquely American story. His is a story about a smart, savvy, businessman chasing the…

  11. Thibodeau sides with Jordan over LeBron. At least for now.

    Oct 24, 2012, 8:20 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' coach Tom Thibodeau yells out during the first quarter of their NBA pre-season basketball game against the Memphis Grizzlies in Chicago, Illinois

    Oh good, more LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan discussion. Because we haven’t beat Man O’ War enough. At least this time the opinion comes from Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, who had to coach against both (he was an assistant with the Knicks in the ‘90s). He was asked about it Tuesday night and he used…

  12. Check out some 1990s NBC “Inside Stuff” highlights

    Oct 16, 2012, 2:50 PM EDT

    NBA on NBC

    I love that as part of my job I have the old “NBA on NBC” logo as my twitter avatar. A lot of us look back fondly on the days when NBC carried he league, it’s the glory days when Jordan ruled all things basketball. NBC also used to run a show called “Inside Stuff”…

    Oct 14, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    Like seemingly all things Michael Jordan, we tend to look back on his marketing and endorsement career through rose-colored glasses. Or, maybe dollar sign glasses. He is considered the gold standard. We kind of ignore the fact that in the 1990s Jordan put his name on just about anything in a very Krusty the Clown…

  14. NBA Preview: Charlotte Bobcats

    Oct 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    Last season: Worst. Team. Ever. Literally, no team has ever finished with a worse winning percentage than the 7-59 Bobcats. That had to sting owner Michael Jordan. They were the least efficient team in the league on offense and defense (they both scored the fewest and allowed the most points per possession in the league).…

  15. Barkley says LeBron “bigger, stronger, faster” than Jordan

    Oct 4, 2012, 1:27 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Move over Kobe Bryant, it’s time for the LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan comparisons to start ramping up. And at the front of it all — Charles Barkley. He is on the opening episode of NBA TV’s Open Court” (which first airs next Tuesday) and he says LeBron could be better than Jordan. From the…

  16. You can bid on Michael Jordan’s expired AMEX card

    Sep 14, 2012, 7:10 PM EDT

    Via ESPN's Darren Rovell

    You know the memorabilia market for an athlete is out of control when… Pretty soon, you’ll be able to bid on owning an expired Michael Jordan American Express card. To be fair, the card does have his signature on the back, which increases it’s value. Why did Jordan sign the card? In case someone stole…

  17. Jordan brand showing up as part of NASCAR

    Sep 11, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Federated Auto Parts 400 - Practice

    Michael Jordan is a basketball icon. The Jordan Brand is a business, it’s part of Nike, and like any brand it needs to expand its markets. But to NASCAR? Yes. It may seem like an odd marriage — the sport with the most urban of fan base and the one with the most middle-American and…

  18. The Inbounds: Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade and the actualization of scorers

    Sep 10, 2012, 12:38 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    Does Kobe Bryant need to be more like Dwyane Wade? Or does Dwyane Wade need to be more like Kobe Bryant? Neither? Both? Hungry? Who’s hungry? The biggest challenge for any player in the NBA is the same one so many children struggle with: how to play with others. Particularly those whose talents are self-mobilized.…

  19. Video: Phil Knight compared Michael Jordan to what now?

    Sep 8, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony

    So Nike exec Phil Knight was inducted to the Hall of Fame last night, and his presenter happened to be Michael Jordan, on account of the symbiotic relationship between the two men’s cultural rise. In the video below, Knight thanks Jordan by elevating him, calling him the greatest of all time and talking about his…

  20. Jordan tapped to advise, motivate U.S. Ryder Cup team

    Sep 5, 2012, 5:10 PM EDT

    Jordan golf

    Let’s just hope he doesn’t go Steve Kerr and punch Bubba Watson in the face… Michael Jordan was certainly known as a motivator as an NBA player, although mostly because he was competitive to the point of near insanity (he once told Kerr he had never felt so low as when his team had lost…

  21. Phil Jackson says “Jordan Rules” book helped Bulls win

    Jordan celebration Ehlo

    Sam Smith is going to receive the 2012 Curt Gowdy Media Awards from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame next week, honoring one of the great journalists ever to ply his craft following the NBA. He covered the Chicago Bulls for years, for the Chicago Tribune and now for the Bull’s official site. He…

  22. Jordan, Magic to be presenters at Hall of Fame ceremony

    Aug 29, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    Presenters are a ceremonial part of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame induction. They don’t actually do anything, but the ceremony calls for an already enshrined Hall of Famer to stand behind the inductee as he or she speaks about being inducted. When Phil Knight — the founder of Nike — is enshrined next Friday…

  23. Jordan, Carmelo do some fundraising with President Obama

    Aug 22, 2012, 10:55 PM EDT

    US-VOTE-2012-DEMOCRATIC CAMPAIGN

    Just like you and I, the people around the NBA care who is president. And while you can’t draw hard and fast lines, a quick look at who donated to whom shows players pretty much lean Democratic and front office/ownership leans Republican. Democrat Barack Obama used some of that player star power for a series…

  24. John Salley says Jordan not even his top 5 he played against

    Aug 16, 2012, 10:03 PM EDT

    salley_bad_boys

    First, John Salley likes to say outrageous things on the radio. There’s a history of it. Second, there is the fact that our personal views of history — particularly our personal history and stories — tend to be skewed by the things we choose to remember and focus on. Which is to say, for example,…

  25. After coaching LeBron, Jim Boeheim is not sure Jordan is the best he’s seen

    Aug 14, 2012, 10:25 PM EDT

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    The year of redemption for LeBron James is reaching dizzying heights now. NBA MVP, NBA champion, NBA finals MVP, gold medal all in one year. His arc is reaching the highest of heights. And the praise keeps pouring in for him. Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim is stepping away from USA Basketball after serving as…
