Michael Jordan

  1. Phil Jackson backs Jerry Krause for Hall of Fame

    Oct 28, 2011, 8:30 AM EDT

    Jerry Krause

    Phil Jackson and former Bulls GM Jerry Krause are not exactly the best of friends. Their feud helped break up the Bulls dynasty. The two did not speak for more than a decade and it took Tex Winter going into the Hall of Fame — and him wanting those two to kiss and make up……

  2. Charles Oakley doesn’t think LeBron James is Michael Jordan

    Oct 19, 2011, 8:14 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Is there anyone who thinks that LeBron James is Michael Jordan? Well, besides Scottie Pippen? Charles Oakley doesn’t think so. Of course he didn’t. The MJ contemporary and recent Bobcats assistant coach wanted to make it clear in an interview with Hoopsworld that the two are not in the same class. (Hat tip to Eye…

  3. Jordan trash talked Bill Clinton at golf. You expected otherwise?

    Oct 17, 2011, 8:51 PM EDT

    Jordan golf

    Michael Jordan will talk trash to anyone at any time (see his Hall of Fame acceptance speech). In fact, if you’re not getting trash talked in his company you may want to worry. And if you think his trash talk knows limits, we bring you this. Former President Bill Clinton did an interview with the…

  4. Video: Jordan’s sons to show you what their lives are like

    Oct 17, 2011, 6:35 PM EDT

    Quail Hollow Championship- Pro Am

    Ever wondered what it would be like to be Michael Jordan’s son? There are certainly perks — free shoes! — but there are expectations, challenges and people trying to use you at every turn. Sons Marcus and Jeffrey are letting you into that world with a new web site and web exclusives – heir-jordan.com —…

  5. Friday night video: Jordan vs. Nique dunk contest highlights

    Oct 7, 2011, 10:07 PM EDT

    Jordan Dunk

    This weekend, with a guillotine hanging over the start of the NBA season, players will take part in a couple of celebrity games (LeBron vs. Wade in Miami, Goodman vs. Drew in Los Angeles). We could use the escape and see some actual hoops. And as a reminder of how fun exhibitions can be, we…

  6. Michael Jordan’s private plane is very… Michael Jordan

    Oct 7, 2011, 11:04 AM EDT

    michael_jordans_personalized_private_plane

    You are not going to mistake Michael Jordan’s toys for anyone else’s. Not his golf bag. And not his private plane, pictured below. (If you want to bask for a minute in the irony of an NBA owner who is claiming the current NBA financial system is really hurting his pocket book having a sweet…

  7. Pippen clarifies: Someday, maybe, LeBron could be best ever

    Oct 5, 2011, 1:18 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    There is nobody, anywhere, who thinks that right now LeBron James is better than Michael Jordan was. Not even Kid LeBron, Business LeBron or Wise LeBron. Bulls’ legend Scottie Pippen stepped in a pile of trouble earlier this year suggesting LeBron could be a better player than MJ. Then Pippen backtracked. Even LeBron didn’t want…

  8. Robert Sarver reportedly even more ridiculous than previously thought

    Oct 1, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    Suns Robert Sarver

    Robert Sarver probably gets a bad wrap sometimes. I mean, yes, he does sell off draft picks like an EBay junkie and yeah, his organization has the turnover rate of your average fast food joint. But the Suns have consistently made the playoffs or been within reach for the past decade and he has made…

  9. Horace Grant says Bulls’ Boozer needs to be like Pippen

    Sep 30, 2011, 4:31 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    It’s no real secret that the Chicago Bulls need to add some versatility to their offense. Our own John Krolik talked about that in his post about what the Bulls need to do when the lockout ends — when LeBron James locked down Derrick Rose in the fourth quarter of playoff games, Chicago had no…

  10. Video: Jordan, Cuban, Drake all pitch NBA 2K12

    Sep 30, 2011, 8:43 AM EDT

    NBA 2K12

    in just a few days NBA 2K12 hits the streets, and we are pumped. 2K11 just killed it, and this year you can play some of the best teams in NBA history. Of course, who is the best is up for debate. Which is the point of this commercial where Michael Jordan and others make…

  11. Michael Jordan makes more money now than when he played

    Sep 23, 2011, 12:45 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan dunk

    It’s good to be Michael Jordan. Even if you do own the Bobcats. Last year, Jordan made twice as much money as he did with his largest contract playing in the NBA, according to Forbes Magazine. In the 1996-97 season, Jordan made $30.1 million, the season after that $33.1 million. (The Riensdorf and Kraus broke…

  12. Michael Jordan’s golf bag is a reminder he is Michael Jordan

    Sep 21, 2011, 4:59 PM EDT

    Jordan golf

    In case you ever ran into him out on the golf course and said “is that really Michael Jordan?” go check his golf bag in the back of the cart. (Although really, do you need to do that to confirm it is the most recognizable athlete on the planet? What’s wrong with you?) The bag…

  13. Dennis Rodman never had a conversation with Michael Jordan or Scottie Pippen in Chicago

    Sep 21, 2011, 2:33 PM EDT

    Dennis Rodman

    Sport lends itself to the romantic. That much is true, and it was true long before legendary talents turned sportswriters into scribes of myths, before Robert Redford ever swung a bat, and before the imagination of a daydreaming kid allowed him to fill the gaps in the life of his favorite athlete. We sports fans…

  14. Video: Watch Michael Jordan talk six rings, NBA 2K12

    Sep 16, 2011, 1:58 PM EDT

    The trailers for NBA 2K12 have us pumped. The chance to play Bill Russell and Magic Johnson and some of the games greats has us salivating. Then came this Michael Jordan trailer for the game. Now… it’s time to play. (via SLAM)

  15. NBA fined Michael Jordan $100,000 for talking lockout

    Sep 12, 2011, 1:36 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    Last month, when Bobcats owner Michael Jordan talked to a paper in Australia about the lockout, our initial reaction was to start a fine countdown. David Stern said he was going to fine any team executives who talked publicly about the lockout, and when it comes to fines Stern is a man of his word.…

  16. Video: The latest NBA 2K12 trailer makes us long for hoops

    nba2k12

    The game may not have the rookies, but it will have the legends and damn, it looks good. Below is the latest trailer for NBA 2K12 and… WOW. It looks good. Just like the last one. It makes me pumped for the game. It makes me pumped for the upcoming season…. oh yea. They need…

  17. Michael Jordan in the clutch vs. LeBron James

    Sep 7, 2011, 5:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    This is not a slam on LeBron James. This is not about who is the better player in the clutch, Michael Jordan or LeBron. Or who is the better player, period (not sure that’s a debate right now). It’s about the attitude Jordan had, what Jordan learned, and what LeBron James needs to pick up…

  18. Jordan is coming back to Chicago — with a steakhouse

    Aug 23, 2011, 11:06 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Charlotte Bobcats

    Michael Jordan and a nice rare New York strip with a side of sautéed mushrooms? I’m in. Michael Jordan is getting back into the restaurant business in the Windy City, reports NBCChicago.com. The most famous basketball player in the world is putting another stamp on Chicago in the form of a new Michael Jordan’s Steak…

  19. Video: NBA 2K12 trailer, where you can be Charles Oakley

    Aug 22, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    nba2k12

    It’s the video game player you have been praying to unlock forever — you can have a team with Charles Oakley. Or Dikembe Mutombo. There is also Larry Bird and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson and so many more of the game’s greats in the new trailer for NBA 2K12. But what is really intriguing…

  20. Just a reminder, “ProStars” was awesome

    Aug 20, 2011, 1:59 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    The problem with “The LeBrons” is it tries to be too much an analogy. It wants to talk about “issues’ and try and teach “values.” It’s a brand expansion. A cartoon needs to be a cartoon, and in doing so, it needs to lack any semblance of rational consideration or legitimate attempts at wry humor.…

  21. NBA 2K12 releases names of legends in the game

    Aug 19, 2011, 2:36 PM EDT

    NBA 2K12

    With the lockout likely to muck up the season, NBA 2K12 made a smart move — this year’s game is going to have legends of basketball that you can unlock and play. We knew a few of them — Michael Jordan was back from last season, with Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. Three names aimed…

  22. Michael Jordan states the owners case, likely to get fined

    Aug 18, 2011, 12:11 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    If you thought as a former player Michael Jordan could be the bridge of sanity between the NBA owners and players, think again. Jordan is the owner of one of the most financially challenged teams in the NBA in the Charlotte Bobcats. He’s one of those small market, heavily leveraged owners who need the system…

  23. Should Jerry Krause be in the Hall of Fame?

    Aug 15, 2011, 11:05 AM EDT

    Jerry Krause

    We’d be willing to bet that Phil Jackson will not be the presenter, but the question is should it happen at all: Should Jerry Krause be the next Chicago Bull in the basketball Hall of Fame? The question came up as Dennis Rodman was enshrined in the hall this past weekend — Krause inherited Michael…

  24. Dennis Rodman gives emotional Hall of Fame speech

    Aug 12, 2011, 10:38 PM EDT

    Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony - Red Carpet

    Hall of Fame induction ceremonies are by their nature emotional. This year’s was no different. There were memorable moments, watching Tex Winter get up to the stage, Artis Gilmore finally being recognized, Theresa Edwards’ powerful speech. Dennis Rodman was Dennis Rodman — raw, emotional, wearing a sequin jacket with his number and saying Pistons and…

    UPDATE 8:02 pm: Tex Winter got his wish — just before the start of the Hall of Fame induction ceremony was about to start Phil Jackson and Jerry Krause shook hands, according to a tweet from K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. The two men there for Tex Winter sat three seats apart from each…
