Michael Jordan

  1. LeBron James finally visiting the low post

    Oct 28, 2010, 12:43 PM EST

    James_PPierce

    It’s a myth that LeBron James never got the ball in the post in Cleveland — last season 6.3 percent of his possessions came on a post up, according to Synergy Sports. And he shot 52 percent when he got the ball there. But the perception that James didn’t go into the post enough is…

  2. Got an extra $430,000 lying around? You can own Michael Jordan’s old car.

    Michael Jordan can afford the very best. The nicest homes, the sweetest vacations, dinner in the finest restaurants, the best basketball teams (in North Carolina anyway), those really nice Hanes T-shirts that don’t go all bacon neck… wait, he probably gets those for free. But he could afford them. And the fastest cars. Specifically, he…

  3. Jordan called Kobe just a “top 10 guard” all time, Kobe is fine with that

    Jordan talks with Bryant

    Michael Jordan is a competitor, to this day. Remember his Hall of Fame speech? That fire still burns, even if that passion will not be reflected in the quality of the team he owns in Charlotte. So with Kobe Bryant one ring away from tying Jordan’s six, you know there will be some comparing. And…

  4. Poll: Could MJ score 100 points in today’s NBA?

    Oct 15, 2010, 10:56 AM EST

    Michael Jordan said the other day he could score 100 points in today’s no hand-checking, less physical NBA. We have our doubts. But we want your opinion — could MJ go Wilt in today’s NBA?

  5. Jordan says he could have scored 100 in today’s game… just let it go, Mike

    Thanks to NBA 2K11 we have a little resurgence of Michael Jordan. He may be virtual, you may have to unlock the good ones, but any chance to see vintage Jordan, even virtual vintage Jordan, works for me. This also has meant more MJ in the media. Like the interview he did with the USA…

  6. Phoenix, Chicago this week's frontrunners for Erick Dampier

    Oct 6, 2010, 6:55 PM EST

    Let’s be honest, we got annoyed with the LeBron James decision process that seemed to drag on and on, but at least there was a franchise-shaping decision coming at the end of it. The Erick Dampier decision-making process? It just drags on and on. Dampier will meet this week with Chicago and Phoenix, according to…

  7. NBA Season Preview: The Charlotte Bobcats

    Sep 30, 2010, 4:11 PM EST

    This post was written by Rob Mahoney. Last season: 44-38, which was good enough to score the Bobcats their first playoff appearance in franchise history. They’re taking steps forward (talent upgrades, internal improvement), even if they’re marching further into the desert (temporary fixes, financial commitments, bad draft picks) with no oasis in sight. Head Coach:…

  8. Miami Heat's big three talk controversy, but they'd like to just play some ball

    Sep 27, 2010, 2:48 PM EST

    Enough with the speculation, let’s roll the balls out on the court and play. Finally. That was the core of what LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh said when they sat down in front of the press at Heat media day Monday in Miami (televised on ESPN). They sat down with Wade in the…

  9. Kwame Brown out 4 to 6 weeks with ankle sprain

    Sep 25, 2010, 3:15 PM EST

    Looks like Kwame Brown won’t be helping out the Bobcats during training camp. (Insert your own joke here.) Brown suffered a severely sprained ankle in pickup game Friday at the Bobcats training facility. He will be out four to six weeks, according to the Associated Press, which will keep him out most of training camp.…

  10. Westbrook, Rose, Josh Smith talking MJ in NBA 2K11 commercial

    Sep 16, 2010, 11:34 AM EST

    Derrick Rose is cutting onions, so stop your crying…. This is a commercial, but a pretty good one. (Via Blog-a-Bull)

  11. Winderman: Celebrating all that has gone wrong in Charlotte (and still making the playoffs)

    Sep 15, 2010, 2:36 PM EST

    Today, we salute the Charlotte Bobcats. No, not for any front-office wizardry (in fact, far from it), but rather for the fact that the franchise, somehow, is coming off its first-ever playoff berth. Because today we also celebrate all that has gone wrong with the franchise. It is the day we learned that Adam Morrison…

  12. Bobcats waive Erick Dampier

    Sep 14, 2010, 4:49 PM EST

    The Bobcats have spent the last few days — the last couple months, really — looking for a trade to get some value out of the Erick Dampier contract. The best value apparently was to get the Bobcats under the luxury tax. The Bobcats have waived Dampier. That means his $13 million contract comes off…

  13. Michael Jordan gets it, donates to middle-school athletic programs in Charlotte

    Aug 30, 2010, 12:34 PM EST

    It was the biggest problem with Bob Johnson, the last Charlotte Bobcat owner — he wasn’t a Charlotte guy. He made some gestures, but he was never really accepted, sort of an out-of-town business owner nobody loved. That is not Michael Jordan. So far, he has been in with both feet. He and his Bobcats…

  14. Bulls to give Scottie Pippen a statue outside United Center. Yes, same size as Jordan's.

    Aug 25, 2010, 5:33 PM EST

    It’s been a good month to be Scottie Pippen. First, he gets to bask in the spotlight of the Hall of Fame inductions, without the looming shadow of Michael Jordan in his way. Now, he gets his own statue outside the United Center. It will be unveiled at some point near the end of this…

  15. Bobcats still looking to trade Erick Dampier, not just set him free

    Aug 25, 2010, 10:26 AM EST

    This much we know: Erick Dampier will not be playing for the Charlotte Bobcats this season under his current $13 million contract. Dampier’s contract is not guaranteed, meaning he can simply be waived and the money comes off a team’s payroll. That kind of contract has value a lot of places. One of three things…

  16. Kwame Brown says he and Jordan are good

    Aug 25, 2010, 9:57 AM EST

    The conventional wisdom out there is that Michael Jordan ruined Kwame Brown, and with that the two men can’t stand each other. But then explain how Jordan signed off on inking Brown to a one-year deal with the Charlotte Bobcats? You can’t. Brown told the Charlotte Observer that the perception of their relationship is wrong.…

  17. Michael Jordan was better at baseball than you remember

    Aug 25, 2010, 8:47 AM EST

    Remember what a disaster Michael Jordan was playing baseball? The well done ESPN 30 for 30 movie “Jordan Rides the Bus” has come along to remind us that why we thought Jordan went to play baseball was wrong. Oh, and that he was pretty good at it, as Eric Freeman notes at Early Termination Option…

  18. Kwame Brown in Charlotte means Dampier will be waived… Miami anyone?

    Aug 24, 2010, 3:51 PM EST

    Want to add to the conspiracy theory, anyone? If anyone could add a new, quality center to their roster right now it would be Pat Riley, the magician who has been pulling rabbits out of his hat all summer long as it is. Here’s how… and we’ll start with the facts. The Charlotte Bobcats signed…

  19. Maybe Jordan was not suspended from basketball for gambling, maybe he just liked baseball

    Aug 24, 2010, 11:04 AM EST

    Michael Jordan went to play baseball as a quiet suspension for his gambling activities. It’s an accepted truth in America, right up there with the man on the grassy knoll and the aliens at Area 51. Except that maybe it’s not true. None of it. Especially the MJ part. Tuesday night the latest in ESPN’s…

  20. Kwame Brown signs deal with Michael Jordan's Bobcats

    Aug 23, 2010, 3:13 PM EST

    Kwame Brown and Michael Jordan are together again. Bet you didn’t see that coming. But Brown has signed a one-year deal at the veteran’s minimum to play for the Charlotte Bobcats next season, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. He had played the last two seasons with the Pistons. Michael Jordan gets credit in most people’s…

  21. Your first look at NBA 2K11, complete with MJ shoulder shrugs

    Aug 19, 2010, 8:30 PM EST

    Just a little taste to get you drooling…. some Snoop Dogg, some MJ, some James Worthy. I am ready for Oct. 5.

  22. Crime lab mishandled evidence in murder of Michael Jordan's father

    Aug 19, 2010, 7:35 PM EST

    Where is Horatio Caine when you need him? The crime lab in Raleigh, North Carolina, mishandled evidence in more than 200 cases in a 16-year span, according to an independent report obtained by the Associated Press. That means a lot of cases are about to be re-opened. One of those may well be Daniel Andre…

  23. Stan Van Gundy: Heat roster better than any of Jordan's Bulls rosters

    Aug 18, 2010, 2:59 PM EST

    No doubt the Heat are going to be good. Very good. But expectations some comparisons and expectations are getting a little ridiculous. Stan Van Gundy is happy to feed the mania, as he did with Dan LeBatard on 790 the Ticket in Miami: “If I look at what the Bulls did winning 72 games and…

  24. Scottie Pippen to enter Hall of Fame with Jordan introduction

    Aug 9, 2010, 7:35 PM EST

    Could it really have been any other way? Friday night Scottie Pippen will rightfully take his place along side the game’s all-time greats in the Hall of Fame. He will be introduced at the induction ceremony by Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan was enshrined last year. We can only hope that his introduction speech for Pippen…

  25. NBA owners complaining about Isiah Thomas deal, but NBA may approve

    Aug 9, 2010, 8:53 AM EST

    One of the NBA rules guiding its executives — nobody can have contact with a college underclassman. Another put in with the age-limit requirement is that nobody from an NBA front office can scout high school players. Isiah Thomas’ new deal has him both as a full-time college coach at Florida International University (where he…
