Michael Jordan

  1. Who gets the number wrong on a Michael Jordan statue?

    Justin Bieber

    If you don’t have a tween daughter — and if not be so, so thankful about that — then you don’t have to deal with Biebermania. As in Justin Bieber. You know, the guy you fast-forwarded through a performance of at the Grammys. (You do DVR the Grammys and get through them in an hour…

  2. Bobcats about to make it official, keep Paul Silas around another year

    Feb 16, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Lakers

    We told you yesterday of the report that the Charlotte Bobcats were about to lock up coach Paul Silas for one more year. That will become official at noon, according to a tweet from Mike Cranston of the Associated Press. The Bobcats are 15-13 under Silas this season, a big improvement from the 9-19 they…

  3. Michael Jordan practices with Bobcats, doesn’t look bad

    Feb 10, 2011, 4:18 PM EDT

    Quail Hollow Championship- Pro Am

    Michael Jordan turns 48 next week and may not have the athleticism that helped make him the greatest NBA player ever (at least greatest perimeter player ever), but he’s still got it. Jordan suited up and practiced with the Bobcats (the team he owns) Thursday, including running some full court five-on-five. “He’s Mike. He’s been…

  4. Video: Kobe Bryant’s first All-Star Game

    Feb 6, 2011, 9:15 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Michael Jordan

    With the end of the Super Bowl fans attention will turn to… well for a few days the breakdown of that game and the ticket fiasco. But after the sports world’s attention drifts to the NBA and the All-Star Game. We’ve talked about the starters, the reserves and there will be a lot more talk…

  5. Nets’ GM: We’re moving on, keeping flexibility for new CBA

    Jan 20, 2011, 3:29 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v New Jersey Nets

    Billy King seemed (and by some accounts was) stunned by Mikhail Prokhorov pulling the plug on the Carmelo Anthony trade talks. The strongest bargaining position is a willingness to walk away from the negotiating table — Prokhorov did that with gusto. Maybe the Nets and Nuggets do talk again, but Nets GM Billy King went…

  6. Michael Jordan’s feasting table consists of the ruin of his opponents. Kinda.

    Jan 16, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Charlotte Bobcats

    Michael Jordan has to live on the coolest stuff. Because he’s Michael Jordan. So it should come as no surprise that his dining room table? It now serves as a reminder of every point he scored in the NBA. From TBD: Nevertheless, Sirvet, a local sculptor who works in metal, knew that he would be…

  7. Report: Bobcats discuss sending Gerald Wallace to Cavaliers

    Jan 14, 2011, 11:14 AM EDT

    Gerald Wallace, Ekpe Udoh, Acie Law

    Michael Jordan is just like almost every other owner in the NBA — he is concerned about payroll more than wins. That would be the only explanation for a trade discussion being reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo — Charlotte trading Gerald Wallace and maybe a pick to the Cavaliers for just the trade exception…

  8. DeSagana Diop’s burdensome contract gets a bit heavier

    Jan 7, 2011, 9:30 AM EDT

    DeSagana Diop

    DeSagana Diop is over two years removed from being a productive NBA player, and based on Diop’s recovery timeline for his recent surgery on his Achilles’ tendon, it could be some time before Diop even has a shot at NBA relevance again. According to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer, Diop’s surgery could put him…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Warriors are awesome in the first half, but that last 24….

    Warriors Magic

    What you missed while wondering what to do with your PowerBalance bracelet… Magic 110, Warriors 90: If new Golden State owner Joe Lacob petitions the league to shorten games to 24 minutes, you can’t blame him — the Warriors have led the Heat and Magic at the half in their last two games. And lost…

  10. Carmelo Anthony tells Michael Jordan, Bobcats “no thanks”

    Jan 3, 2011, 11:16 AM EDT

    Image (1) anthony_high5-thumb-250x140-18487.jpg for post 6258

    The Bobcats are a struggling franchise. On the court and at the gate. Something or someone needs to change that. Someone like Carmelo Anthony. Bobcats owner Michael Jordan reached out to Melo and his people before contacting the Nuggets and throwing his hat in the ring of the Anthony sweepstakes, only to be told no…

  11. Expect the Bobcats to stay the Bobcats

    Dec 31, 2010, 10:04 AM EDT

    Image (1) bobcats_logo-thumb-250x182-19284.jpg for post 3934

    At his very first press conference as owner, Michael Jordan was asked about changing the name Bobcats. There are some in Charlotte who despise that name — former owner Bob Johnson picked it and the feeling is he was naming the team after himself. Jordan said he was open to the idea, but that it…

  12. Dwight Howard mocks LeBron with fake chalk toss in Cleveland

    Dec 29, 2010, 8:10 AM EDT

    howardface

    The Orlando Magic were in Cleveland Tuesday night and Dwight Howard played to the crowd a little before the game by mocking LeBron James‘ famed pregame chalk toss (which LeBron borrowed from Garnett who got it from MJ, but that’s another story). Well, maybe not mocking, but it wasn’t a loving tribute. Before the game…

  13. Could Nate McMillan end up coaching Charlotte?

    Dec 27, 2010, 9:56 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Portland Trail Blazers - Game 6

    Paul Silas will have his first game as the interim head coach of the Charlotte Bobcats Monday, replacing Larry Brown. But already there is speculation about who will replace Silas next season (Silas does not want to give up the job so easily). Marc Stein of ESPN threw out an interesting name. Look for Blazers…

  14. Michael Jordan aggressive on trade front to revamp Bobcat roster

    Dec 23, 2010, 1:51 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Charlotte Bobcats

    Michael Jordan has seen enough and it’s not just the coaching position that is getting an overhaul. Multiple reports or trade talks out there suggest Jordan is going to be aggressive in revamping a mismatched and unimpressive Bobcats roster. Sam Amick of FanHouse reports one deal being discussed with Portland. Bobcats and Portland have discussed…

  15. Report: Bobcats talking to Clippers about Baron Davis trade

    Dec 23, 2010, 9:11 AM EDT

    Image (1) nba_davis1-thumb-250x185-5464.jpg for post 411

    Right now Baron Davis is seen in Los Angeles as the anchor on the Clippers rebuilding plans, as such they have been looking for someone to take his contract off their hands. That could be the recently shaken up Bobcats — who should be trying to rebuild themselves — according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo.…

  16. Paul Silas named as new Bobcats coach

    Dec 22, 2010, 8:16 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Just hours after Larry Brown stepped down, the Charlotte Bobcats have named Paul Silas as their new head coach, team owner Michael Jordan announced. This is an interim gig, with the position to be re-evaluated at the end of the season. Silas has had 10 previous seasons as an NBA head coach, including four seasons…

  17. Larry Brown steps down as Bobcats coach

    Dec 22, 2010, 4:50 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Charlotte Bobcats

    UPDATE 4:41 pm: Paul Silas is the leading candidate to replace Brown as the Bobcats coach, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. Also in the mix: Patrick Ewing and Mike Woodson. Ken Berger of CBSSports says that Brown and Jordan came up with the list together and that other longshot names on it are current…

  18. Kobe wears his Lower Merion shorts under his Lakers shorts every game

    Dec 17, 2010, 1:48 PM EDT

    Kobe_stares3

    Michael Jordan, every time he put on his Chicago Bulls shorts for a game, had a pair of North Carolina shorts on underneath them. Kobe Bryant, every time he has put on his Los Angeles Lakers shorts, has a pair of his old Lower Merion High School shorts on underneath. We all learned that later…

  19. DeMar DeRozan with a monster slam

    Dec 15, 2010, 8:46 AM EDT

    96675610_crop_340x234

    You kids watching at home, this is why you move without the ball. This was not only the dunk of the night it’s one of the better ones of the season — DeMar DeRozan should be proud. Still, my favorite part of this video is at the very end, where Michael Jordan is shown looking…

  20. Sneak peak at the new Air Jordans

    Dec 13, 2010, 1:51 PM EDT

    air-jordan-2011-3

    Michael Jordan hasn’t suited up for an NBA game in seven seasons, and it’s been a dozen since anything meaningful (sorry Wizards fans). Yet Jordan and the Air Jordan line still have a virtual monopoly on the basketball shoe market. So we bring you this sneak peak at the 2011 version — courtesy Counterkicks —…

  21. Avery Johnson: Kobe “could be 1-A” to Jordan’s 1-B

    Dec 12, 2010, 10:13 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant with Michael Jordan

    In a story that’s sure to invite no comments below, Avery Johnson today essentially said he believes Kobe Bryant to be “as great” as Michael Jordan. From the New York Post: “[Bryant] could arguably be 1. In some polls, he’ll be 2,” the Nets coach said yesterday about the players he has seen since he…

  22. Bobcats chasing terrible idea in trading for Melo, which could be pretty good

    Dec 12, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Carmelo Anthony wants a big market, superstar teammates, legendary status, lots of endorsement deals, and to party like a rock star. So, naturally, this whole idea of Michael Jordan trading for the Nuggets star is clearly going to work out. ESPN and Hoopsworld are both reporting that Michael Jordan and the Bobcats have shown interest…

  23. Bobcats players start pointing out what’s wrong. It’s a long list.

    Dec 6, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    Last season the Charlotte Bobcats made their first-ever playoff appearance. This season, with Michael Jordan firmly entrenched as owner, it was time to take the next step. Backwards. At least that is what has happened so far. The Bobcats are 7-13 and out of the playoffs if they started today. In a fantastic piece —…

  24. Kobe Bryant calls Michael Jackson his mentor

    Nov 23, 2010, 12:44 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Kobe Bryant is a complex man. We like to paint our athletes into easy to define boxes — Kobe learned his drive by watching Michael Jordan — that are not always accurate fit. They often are not with Kobe. For example, he told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo he learned his drive by his friendship with…

  25. The Lakers and 72 wins? Phil Jackson isn’t into it.

    Nov 8, 2010, 5:32 PM EDT

    Image (1) pjackson_finals-thumb-250x140-13332.jpg for post 2458

    Before the season the talk was about the Heat and 72 wins, with everybody sane saying it wouldn’t happen and wasn’t worth the effort. But that never stops the talk. But the Lakers? They are off to a 7-0 start. They look deeper, they have a healthy Kobe Bryant and a rested Pau Gasol and…
