Michael Jordan may be the greatest player in NBA history, but even he can’t get away with wearing cargo shorts.
Michael Jordan banned from golf course for wearing cargo shorts

“Jordan showed up at La Gorce Country Club in Miami on Wednesday wearing cargo shorts, which is against the dress code at the facility.
“Apparently no one noticed until he played a few holes of his round, because while on the 12th hole, Jordan was approached by club personnel who asked that he return to the clubhouse and change his pants.”


Someone get Mike some help. Please.

Michael Jordan played against men. LeBron plays against young boys. That’s the difference.

Certainly there are plenty of related peripherals, both authorized and unauthorized, for Air Jordan, though this might be one of the most unique ones. By combining two of his beloved labels, Apple and Jordan Brand, artist LavinPierre recreated Air Jordan XIII graphics onto his cases for the iPhone 5. But they aren’t just simple side profiles, instead LanvinPierre utilized the outsole of key editions. There is the Air Jordan XIII “Bred”, “Playoff”, “He Got Game”, even “Wheat”, and “Ray Allen”. They are be sure to be great conversation and trivial pieces during the next line-up.

Chicago’s Derrick Rose will need to channel a few vintage MJ performances, if the Bulls hope to survive. 

Seattle’s OKC’s Russell Westbrook could have used some of Gary Payton’s game for the Sonics Thunder to have stayed alive.

2 Of The Greatest, Going Head To Head



IMO, the best player of all-time(Jordan) ‘D’-ing up the third best player of all-time(Magic). 

My personal Mt. Rushmore of NBA players would have to be Jordan, Bill Russell, Magic, & Larry Bird. I was lucky enough to have seen all but Russell play in person. This year’s Season Opener, between the Heat & Celtics, was pretty amazing considering their were seven 2011 All-Stars, plus Shaq, all on the floor at the same time. Phenomenal experience for a basketball fan. 

Who are the two best players you have ever seen play against one another in a game**?

**Excluding the All Star game

2010-2011 Player Profile: Kobe Bryant
It’s great to go “first.”  Ask Neil Armstrong.  You have no idea who  the other astronauts are, because you only know the name Neil Armstrong  (save it, space nerds.  I’m making a point).  “First” gets a lot of  publicity.  “First” place.  “First” to “discover” America.  Rambo’s  “First” Blood. 
Well, in Kobe Bryant’s unending drive to be first on the list of greatest players ever, going second suits him just right.

Greatest Trios of All-time?

DWade just said that this could be the greatest trio of all time… only time will tell but until then lets look at other great trios:

- KG, Pierce, Allen: It’s a shame these three didn’t join forces earlier in their careers.

- West, Baylor, Chamberlain: These guys never technically won a title together but those three names are amoung the greatest of all time.

- Birb, McHale, Parish:  Won 3 titles together. A total of 10 rings and 3 MVPs

- Jordan, Pippen, Grant: These three won 3 straight titles together until Jordan retired and Horace left. But it’s okay because that led us to the next great Bull’s trio.

- Magic, Kareem, Worthy: These guys won 3 titles together. Between them 14 championships and 9 MVPs.

- Jordan, Pippen, Rodman: While Rodman isn’t in the Hall of Fame, he deserves it. One of the greatest rebounders/defenders of all time. This Trio has 17 titles between them and the greatest single season record of all time.

- Russell, Havlicek, Jones: These guys won a staggering 8 championships together. A total of 29 titles between them. Sure it happened back in the day but all these guys did was win, win, win.

Where do James, Wade, and Bosh rank on this list? Currently, no where. They haven’t done anything together. Alone they have 1 ring and 2 MVPs. Not exactly amazing stats.

In my mind these guys have realized individually they will never catch MJ in stats or Legend. Their next best shot is to catch him in Championship count and this is the best way how. Look at Kobe, for example. The guys numbers don’t even touch MJ on an off night, yet he is one ring behind his Airness and already people are comparing Kobe to Jordan.

What this trio and, more specifically, LeBron accomplishes in June is going to be the best measure of their greatness.
