Michael Jordan

  1. Steve Kerr says LeBron more Pippen than Jordan

    Jun 13, 2011, 1:37 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    A player’s shortcomings become magnified in the finals. What was odd about LeBron James’ playing passively through the last few games of the NBA finals is that he’d been so good earlier in these playoffs — he was Miami’s best player against Boston and Chicago. He attacked in the face of the challenge of Boston’s…

  2. Stan Van Gundy wonders if Pippen was actually great

    Jun 10, 2011, 1:19 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Chicago Bulls

    Scottie Pippen is one of the NBA’s official 50 Greatest Players of All Time. He is a Hall of Famer. He has six rings. But is he overrated? There are a lot of people who think he is, and Pippen has always chaffed at that idea, that he was Robin to Jordan’s Batman. You can…

  3. Kareem writes open letter to Pippen about LeBron, Jordan

    May 31, 2011, 2:09 PM EDT

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

    Everyone has climbed all over Scottie Pippen in recent days for putting LeBron James on the same pedestal with Michael Jordan, calling Jordan the best scorer of all time but LeBron a potentially better all around player. At best it felt a little premature. In Chicago that was blasphemy. Now Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has entered the…

  4. LeBron says he’s no Jordan, no matter what Pippen thinks

    May 28, 2011, 10:04 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    Scottie Pippen took plenty of heat for having the temerity to put anybody on Michael Jordan’s perch. Especially somebody half the country hates. It stuck his as a bit early to say a mid-career LeBron should be on that level. And LeBron feels the same way, he told Marc Spears at Yahoo, although he dances around…

  5. Pippen: Jordan greatest scorer ever, LeBron best player

    May 27, 2011, 10:48 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Scottie Pippen has said what will be viewed as no less than blasphemy in Chicago. The Hall of Fame player was interviewed on ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike show Friday morning (via NBA.com’s Sekou Smith) following the Heat’s comeback win to eliminate the Bulls and he compared Michael Jordan and LeBron James. “Michael Jordan is…

  6. Video: The Crossover

    May 25, 2011, 9:02 PM EDT

    jordan iverson

    Just a fantastic video from the people at the New York Times today, breaking down the history of the crossover dribble. This is basically a documentary on the move, going back to Georgetown where Allen Iverson learned the move and tracing it forward to today and what Dwyane Wade and other do with the move. It’s…

  7. Maya Moore becomes first woman signed by Nike’s Jordan brand

    May 20, 2011, 1:18 PM EDT

    Maya Moore

    Michael Jordan and the Jordan brand still dominate the basketball shoe market. More than 80 percent of all sales dominate. It’s not even a contest. So the signing of Maya Moore as the first woman ever as part of the Jordan Brand is huge, something the company announced this week. Moore is the back-to-back national…

    Michael Jordan Orpah Winfrey

    Michael Jordan showed up on stage for Oprah Winfrey’s farewell episode. What, you expected less? Derrick Rose’s family went to see the Oprah final show, too. Great breakdown of the Heat’s isolation sets against Chicago at The Painted Area. Heat may want to do less of that Wednesday. How the Orlando Magic used to be…

  9. Charles Oakley sues Vegas resort over “beat down”

    May 15, 2011, 8:42 AM EDT

    Charles Oakley

    There was a time when Charles Oakley was the enforcer. When he was Michael Jordan’s on-court bodyguard. But now the former Bull and Knick, and current Bobcats assistant coach, is suing a Las Vegas resort over an alleged beating by security guards last year. Oakley has filed a lawsuit against the Aria hotel at MGM…

  10. For first time in 13 years no Kobe, Shaq or Duncan in finals

    May 12, 2011, 1:10 PM EDT

    Kobe Shaquille O'Neal Lakers

    In the 1998 NBA finals, Michael Jordan pushed off on Byron Russell to drill the game winner in what was the end of an era in the NBA. These 2011 finals, wherever and with whomever they take place, will mark the start of a new era. For the first time since Jordan’s final game as…

  11. Kobe will someday become all-time leading playoff scorer

    Apr 23, 2011, 1:31 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets - Game Three

    While he will deny it when asked about it, Kobe Bryant knows when he passes a rival or legend on an important list. So when Kobe Shaquille O’Neal on the NBA’s all-time playoff scoring list (likely during Game 5 of the Lakers/Hornets series), he will be smirking inside and thinking of lines about how his…

  12. Portland owner, one of world’s richest men, complains about NBA finances

    Apr 20, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    Paul Allen

    For some context, Portland Trail Blazer owner Paul Allen is worth $13 billion dollars according to Forbes. That would make him the 21st richest man in the United States. Which is the kind of money you get when you are one of the founders of Microsoft. Put it this way: When it was time to…

  13. Chris Paul won’t rule out playing for Jordan in Charlotte

    Apr 12, 2011, 1:29 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    Chris Paul — who is eyeing a future outside the Big Easy — knows that rule No. 1 is not to cut off potential opportunities. No matter the likelihood. With that in mind we bring you Chris Paul’s reaction to being asked by the Associated Press if he would return to his native North Carolina…

  14. Scottie Pippen now immortalized at United Center

    Apr 8, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    Scottie Pippen Statue

    It was fitting. Michael Jordan is soaring high, larger than life outside the United Center. Now, inside the building and in full color, Scottie Pippen has his eyes on everything. The Bulls unveiled a bust of Pippen at halftime of their trouncing of Boston Thursday night. The statue of the Bulls legend will be displayed…

  15. Jordan sells shoe-inspiring Bentley to auto museum

    Mar 31, 2011, 5:58 PM EDT

    Jordan Bentley

    The front of the Nike Air Jordan 21 was designed to look like the front of Michael Jordan’s customized Bentley Continental GT Coupe. Because, if you are Michael Jordan you can have a multinational corporation design a shoe based on your car. Jordan has now sold the car Volo Auto Museum, reports CSN Chicago. The…

  16. Scottie Pippen to get statue inside United Center

    Mar 17, 2011, 8:29 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    Michael Jordan has the iconic statue outside the building, Scottie Pippen one inside. Yea, that sounds about right. The Bulls announced that they would honor Pippen with a statue, to be unveiled next month when the Celtics are in town. The statue will be on the 100-level concourse inside the building. “Words really can’t express…

  17. Derrick Rose: Thanks for all that added pressure Mr. Jordan

    Mar 14, 2011, 8:05 PM EDT

    derrick Rose bulls

    Michael Jordan was throwing all sorts of bouquets at Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls over the weekend. Jordan said Rose was his MVP. Or when Jordan said this at the United Center over the weekend. “You guys are in store for a lot of other championships… don’t be surprised if you have six more…

  18. Phil Jackson: Kobe is not Jordan, nobody is

    Mar 13, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Michael Jordan

    Phil Jackson has been there, he has played golf with Michael Jordan. He has had dinners with Kobe Bryant. He has coached them both. He has won championships with both. His perspective on comparing the greatest player of his generation (if not all time) and his heir apparent may have the most insight. And he…

  19. Jordan reflects on ’91 championship team, and sees same future for Rose’s Bulls

    Mar 13, 2011, 1:15 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    The Chicago Bulls celebrated the 20th anniversary of the 1991 championship team Saturday night. Looking back on it, you could tell Michael Jordan still wishes he was living in that time when the world was his. It’ll always be that way for Jordan, looking back on when his body enabled him to dominate every living…

  20. Scottie Pippen says Michael Jordan could score 100 points today

    Mar 11, 2011, 1:18 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan Scottie Pippen Flu Game

    Back in the Jordan era, defenders out on the wing could “hand check” — put their hands on the guy with the ball — and there was no call. A little grab, a little push did not elicit a whistle. Nor did Jordan pushing off to create space. Today (for the last decade almost), you…

  21. Michael Jordan says Derrick Rose is the MVP

    Mar 10, 2011, 11:18 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Charlie Villanueva

    Well, that’s about as big an endorsement as you can get. The five time MVP. The guy with the statue outside the United Center. The one and only Michael Jordan says that Derrick Rose is the MVP, according to ESPN Chicago. “MVP of the season,” Jordan said about Rose after the Bulls’ 101-84 win over…

    perkinsthunder

    It’s tough to find a better cause than Hoops for St. Jude. Fantastic look at Kendrick Perkins the person (and very tall alter boy). If we look at history, how LeBron James does in the regular season doesn’t really tell us much about the playoffs. Michael Jordan says it officially for anyone who really thought…

  23. Bobcats to get Tyrus Thomas, Stephen Jackson back Wednesday

    Mar 8, 2011, 5:20 PM EDT

    Image (1) Ty_Thomas-thumb-275x154-14968.jpg for post 6285

    The last couple of games the Charlotte Bobcat offense has been… how can I put this in a family-friendly way… ugly. Phyllis Diller without plastic surgery ugly. Keanu Reeves doing Shakespeare ugly. No Gerald Wallace anymore and without Stephen Jackson and Tyrus Thomas due to injuries, the Bobcats just had no good way to generate…

  24. Blake Griffin jumps Dunk Contest over car, into new era of spectacle

    Feb 20, 2011, 12:40 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin car dunk

    The days of the Dominique tomahawk are gone. The Jordan cradle dunk is a dinosaur. Throwing it off the backboard to yourself is passé. Blake Griffin dunked over a car while a gospel choir sang at midcourt. And he is your 2011 Slam Dunk Contest champion. It was impressive and entertaining. That, my friends, is…

  25. Happy birthday Michael Jordan

    Feb 17, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan dunk

    Today Michael Jordan turns 48. I’m not sure why Michael Jordan’s birthday is not a national holiday yet, but according to the suits at NBC who are forcing me to work today it is not. Whatever. To celebrate, let’s hop in the way back machine (courtesy NBA TV) and check out some highlights from early…
