Off the top of my head:
That’s a Kobe game winner (over Wade) against the Heat.
That’s a LeBron game winner against Orlando in the ‘09 ECF.
That is, of course, Jordan’s famous “The Shot" (last in a series of three: I, II)
As for Wade’s… any guesses?

Michael was more likely to break through his attackers with power and strength, while Kobe often tries to finesse his way through mass pileups. Michael was stronger, with bigger shoulders and a sturdier frame. He also had large hands that allowed him to control the ball better and make subtle fakes. Jordan was also more naturally inclined to let the game come to him and not overplay his hand, whereas Kobe tends to force the action, especially when the game isn’t going his way. When his shot is off, Kobe will pound away relentlessly until his luck turns. Michael, on the other hand, would shift his attention to defense or passing or setting screens to help the team win the game
— Phil Jackson points out the differences, as he sees it, between Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant in an excerpt from his forthcoming book Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success.

Throwback feat. Michael Jordan & Charles Oakley

Song: ”Return of the G (Ryan Hemsworth Edit)”

NBA Playoffs throwback: Chicago Bulls vs. Brooklyn New Jersey Nets, 1998, Game 3, Eastern Conference quarterfinals.

In which Michael Jordan shoots an effortless 72% from the field(!!!) and goes 3-3 from 3, scoring 38 points to complete a 3 game sweep of the Nets in the Meadowlands.

A new chapter begins on Saturday in Brooklyn at 8pm EST on ESPN.

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 has applied for a marriage license in Florida, one year after getting engaged to his girlfriend, Yvette Prieto. Jordan retired from marriage back in 2006, but you knew the fiercely-competitive MJ would never settle for just one wedding ring. No date has been set for the nuptials, but the bride plans to wear white, and the groom plans to wear an oversized tuxedo jacket, a leather golf cap, and a pair of extra-baggy distressed jeans, unless the church allows cargo shorts.

This is my favorite YouTube compilation of Michael Jordan highlights — “The Artistry of Michael Jordan Part 1”. The perfect way to waste 10 minutes on a lazy Sunday afternoon, watching the prettiest MJ highlight after highlight, scored by pan-Asian bamboo flute music.

A bunch of people talk about Michael Jordan.

There aren’t enough platitudes for ESPN the Magazine’s new article on Michael Jordan, for which he participated. It’s also long. Here are some choice highlights:
Jordan vacations on a 154-foot yacht named Mister Terrible.
Upon forgetting the lock combination of an old safe in his former home in Chicago:

“Everything else stopped as this consumed him. After 10 failed attempts, the safe would go into a security shutdown and need to be blown open. None of the usual numbers worked. Nine different combinations failed; they had one try left. Jordan focused. He decided it had to be a combination of his birthday, Feb. 17, and old basketball numbers. He typed in six digits: 9, 2, 1, 7, 4, 5. Click.”

His three favorite Western movies are Outlaw Josey Wales, Two Mules for Sister Sara, and Unforgiven.
On his competitiveness playing app games on his iPad:

“He’s in the middle of an epic game of Bejeweled on his iPad, and he’s moved past level 100, where he won the title Bejeweled Demigod … ‘I can’t help myself,’ he says. ‘It’s an addiction. You ask for this special power to achieve these heights, and now you got it and you want to give it back, but you can’t. If I could, then I could breathe.’”

Jordan watching LeBron on League Pass:

“‘I study him,’ he says. When LeBron goes right, he usually drives; when he goes left, he usually shoots a jumper. It has to do with his mechanics and how he loads the ball for release. ‘So if I have to guard him,’ Jordan says, ‘I’m gonna push him left so nine times out of 10, he’s gonna shoot a jump shot. If he goes right, he’s going to the hole and I can’t stop him. So I ain’t letting him go right.’
“For the rest of the game, when LeBron gets the ball and starts his move, Jordan will call out some variation of ‘drive’ or ‘shoot.’ It’s not just LeBron. He sees fouls the officials miss, and the replays prove him right. When someone shoots, he knows immediately whether it’s going in. He calls out what guys are going to do before they do it, more plugged into the flow of the game than some of the players on the court. He’s answering texts, buried in his phone, when the play-by-play guy announces a LeBron jump shot. Without looking up, Jordan says, ‘Left?’”

On which of today’s players could be successful in his era:

LeBron, Kobe, Tim Duncan, Dirk Nowitzki. That’s it.
