Michael Jordan

  1. Reinsdorf: Six Bulls titles would not have happened without Pippen

    Aug 6, 2010, 9:02 PM EST

    Scottie Pippen was a fantastic player. Scottie Pippen deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, as will formally happen next week. Pippen deserves the accolades that will come his way. But it’s hard to read what Bulls owner Jerry Riesndorf said about Pippen to Bulls.com without feeling there is another slight toward Michael Jordan…

  2. Charlie Rosen says Jerry Krause's ego sent Jordan to play baseball

    Aug 2, 2010, 5:48 PM EST

    Charlie Rosen — the current author former CBA (the D-League before the D-League) coach and assistant to Phil Jackson at that level — took on an oldie but a goodie today: When will Kobe Bryant’s age catch up with him. He compares Kobe to the Michael Jackson career arc. Which is nice but not the…

  3. Michael Jordan moving closer to Bobcats ops

    Aug 1, 2010, 11:30 AM EST

    There’s nothing about being the owner of a sports team that means you have to be in the same city as your team. In fact, a vast majority of owners do not make their home near the team’s operations. And if you do, it’s still no guarantee that you’ll be successful, far from it. In…

  4. Want to hear "Champion" by Ron Artest? Buy NBA2K11.

    Jul 30, 2010, 2:28 PM EST

    The marketing hook for NBA2K11 is Michael Jordan. Because he still sells. Jordan will be on the cover and inside the game will be eight vintage Jordan teams you can play. And a Ron Artest song. Artest’s “Champion” is one of the 27 tracks that will be part of the soundtrack for the most popular…

  5. We're living in an age of great shooters

    Jul 24, 2010, 12:14 PM EST

    It’s a lazy Saturday afternoon in the NBA offseason. Our primary choices of discussion are the latest in Chris Paul rumors (nothing of substance will develop until after his meeting with NOLA brass Monday), Shaquille O’Neal rumors (the great celebration of the marginal), and a Las Vegas team that doesn’t exist. So instead, I thought…

  6. Kobe Bryant is America's most popular athlete. Didn't see that coming, did you?

    Jul 21, 2010, 9:40 AM EST

    Five years ago, Kobe Bryant may have been America’s most loathed athlete. Calling his career as an endorser “washed up” would have been about the nicest way of putting things one could have. Now, he is America’s most popular athlete. According to a poll by Harris Interactive, Kobe Bryant and Tiger Woods are tied as…

  7. Magic agrees with Jordan: 'That's not what we were about'

    Jul 20, 2010, 11:20 PM EST

    Times are different. LeBron is teaming up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Michael Jordan said the other day he wouldn’t have done that, he wanted to beat Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, not partner with them. Not everyone — including our own Ira Winderman — buys that. But Magic Johnson said he agrees with…

  8. Winderman: Jordan would have called Magic and Bird — he wanted to win

    Jul 19, 2010, 1:28 PM EST

      When did Michael Jordan become like our dads? When did he start with the, “Well, back in my day…” Because if he truly is going to thrive as a franchise owner with the Charlotte Bobcats, then perhaps there is a need to recognize he is not back in his day, and that the world…

  9. Jordan wouldn't have called up Bird, Magic to be teammates, he wanted to beat them

    Jul 18, 2010, 11:12 PM EST

      Michael Jordan is still a competitor. Don’t get him wrong, he’d like the money the big free agents are getting now. But he says he wouldn’t have called up Larry Bird or Magic Johnson and wanted to team up. “I wanted to beat those guys.” Times are different now. For better or for worse,…

  10. Michael Jordan says Kobe is the best player in the game right now

    Jul 14, 2010, 7:19 PM EST

      This actually happened last month at his camp but we just got the video and thought we’d pass this along. Michael Jordan says that right now, Kobe is the best player in the game, not LeBron. This is MJ, winning is what matters to him. So this shouldn’t be a shock. And with the…

  11. Bobcats out of big trade; Barbosa for Turkoglu still on

    Jul 13, 2010, 12:40 PM EST

    Michael Jordan may made a descent owner after all. He had second thoughts about shipping out two solid big men — Tyson Chandler and Boris Diaw — for one nice point guard — Jose Calderon. He was right. The Bobcats are now out of the reported big three-team deal, according to Ken Berger at CBSSports.…

  12. LeBron James decides to become the ultimate facilitator

    Jul 9, 2010, 8:50 AM EST

    Scottie Pippen has six championship rings. He’s a seven time NBA All-Star. He was an NBA All-Star Game MVP in 1994, a 3-time NBA First-Team All-NBA selection, and an 8 time NBA All-Defensive team selection. He is considered one of the greatest players in NBA history and a legend in the truest sense for being…

  13. Raymond Felton being courted, done with the Bobcats

    Jul 2, 2010, 10:47 AM EST

    Raymond Felton’s departure from Charlotte has been in the works for some time. Felton and the team could never agree on terms for an extension that would have made Raymond the Bobcats’ long-term point guard. Then Michael Jordan tore down his Raymond Felton poster to put up a D.J. Augustin one, exposing the writing on…

  14. Ron Harper on Kobe: "He's the closest thing we've ever had to Jordan"

    Jun 23, 2010, 3:12 PM EST

    Ron Harper has perspective. He was on the Bulls during their heyday for three titles. He was on the Lakers for the first two titles of the Kobe/Shaq era. Through it all he was like a coach on the floor. And he told FanHouse Jordan remains the best, but don’t think the gap is very…

  15. Bobcats looking to continue pattern of heavy trade activity

    Jun 19, 2010, 3:00 PM EST

    Since Larry Brown took over as head coach of the Bobcats, each season has held a significant trade to overhaul the franchise. First it was trading Jason Richardson for Boris Diaw and Raja Bell. Then trading Emeka Okafor for Tyson Chandler. Then trading Bell for Stephen Jackson. And most recently acquiring Tyrus Thomas for Flip…

  16. Great NBA finals Game 5s: the Michael Jordan flu game

    Jun 12, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    Game 5 has given us some of the greatest NBA finals moments — even Avery Johnson was a Game 5, series clinching star. (Whatever happened to him, anyway?) On of the greatest: Michael Jordan dropping 38 points on the Utah Jazz despite having the flu.

  17. Sorry Clippers, looks like Larry Brown is staying in Charlotte

    Jun 7, 2010, 5:37 PM EST

    Larry Brown is back in Charlotte, doing his job. Which is still head coach of the Charlotte Bobcats. The same job he will have next season. Apparently. That is what he is telling Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer. “I’m here, coaching. So obviously I’m under contract, doing my job.” So I followed up on…

  18. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 2: How Ray Allen got his groove back (and the Celtics, too)

    Jun 7, 2010, 12:51 AM EST

    In June 1992, Ray Allen was doing what every other basketball crazed 16-year-old in the nation was doing — watching Michael Jordan rain threes on the Portland Trail Blazers. Six of them in Game 1 of the finals. Leading the Bulls to a crushing of the Trail Blazers. Tonight, Ray Allen was better than that.…

  19. Michael Jordan to grace the cover of NBA 2k11

    May 27, 2010, 12:54 PM EST

    The idea of a cover athlete for a sports video game is simple: brainstorm a list of current popular athletes — with emphasis on those with recent relevance — in the target sport, narrow them down based on willingness, costs, marketability, and other factors, then wash, rinse, and repeat every year. With Chris Paul set…

  20. NBA.com Store finds: team logo toasters

    May 24, 2010, 4:59 PM EST

    Want to eat what Michael Jordan eats for breakfast? What Gerald Wallace eats? It ain’t Wheaties, my friend. It is toast. Bread emblazoned with the logo of the Charlotte Bobcats. Burned in by special toaster. I’m sure Kobe Bryant eats from the Lakers toaster. LeBron James eats from the Cavaliers toaster — for now. Erick…

  21. William Wesley, the most powerful man you don't know

    May 24, 2010, 12:17 PM EST

    The rumors are LeBron James and John Calipari are being packaged as a pair. Packaged by William Wesley, a man usually just described as an NBA power broker. Wesley works for CAA and is very tight with both men. But you can bet that wherever LeBron James lands, whoever his coach will be, when James…

  22. John Wall, Evan Turner show everyone doesn't want to be like LeBron

    May 7, 2010, 2:52 PM EST

    In the 1990s, Michael Jordan ruled on the court, his agent David Falk ruled off it. Falk had around 40 clients and those included most of the big names of the decade, guys like Patrick Ewing and Alonzo Mourning. He bullied around the Players Association in the 1995 lockout, and was involved behind the scenes…

  23. One time super agent David Falk lands a big one — Evan Turner

    May 6, 2010, 4:12 PM EST

    Back in the 1990s, David Falk was the man. He was Michael Jordan’s agent, and everyone wanted to be like Mike. Patrick Ewing, Alonzo Mourning, it seemed everyone was a Falk client (he had more than 40). He was in the middle of the 1995 lockout trying to decertify the players union. His fingerprints were…

  24. As the Larry Brown coaching saga turns: Philadelphia will talk to him, Charlotte plans for change

    Apr 28, 2010, 10:10 AM EST

    This is starting to make federal financial reform look simple. The latest in the Larry Brown coaching saga is that the Philadelphia 76ers do want to talk to him, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. But only about being their coach, nothing more. The 76ers are poised to contact Larry Brown about their coaching vacancy, but…

  25. Sixers: Larry Brown rumors "total, unadulterated bull"

    Apr 27, 2010, 10:30 AM EST

    Like weeds, every few days new “Larry Brown will head to Philadelphia” rumors come up. And just as fast everyone involved pulls out the Round-Up and tries to kill it. But the rumors and denials circle will not die Yesterday, the Larry Brown to the Sixers rumors were back. Today, we bring you denials from…
