In the game of basketball there is nothing like witnessing an ankle-breaker. Dunks are cool, but there is something about watching a defender surrender to gravity and falling on the court after a vicious crossover. Whether you fight it to this day, we have all been victims. Read More »

The shooting guard position is a thing of beauty. Michael Jordan came into the league and dominated his spot and the NBA like no other player has ever done.

Kevin Durant On Passing MJ’s Streak Of 25-Plus Points: “I Wish It Was Over”

Kevin Durant

A lot has been made of the streak Kevin Durant has been on where he’s scored at least 25 points over the course of now-41 games during his all-but-certain MVP season. While the number is somewhat arbitrary, especially when you consider KD averages 32.2 PPG, which leads the NBA, the man he replaced when his streak hit 41 games yesterday, Michael Jeffrey Jordan, makes it somewhat remarkable.

Michael Jordan (Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports)

We told you Michael Jordan — the man that made Nike the global powerhouse they are today, as well as spawning the profitable Jordan Brand — apologized to Sixers guard Tony Wroten after the sole of Wroten’s Nike fell off during a game against Indy last week. But it seems the original report got it wrong, and Wroten was joking when he said the GOAT had issued an apology.
