Video: MJ’s Pitch To Lance Stephenson, “We Need To Challenge LeBron”

Lance Stephenson, LeBron James

While Michael Jordan wasn’t so clear on changing the Charlotte Bobcats to the Charlotte Hornets, which goes into effect starting with this season, he was pretty set on targeting Lance Stephenson in free agency this summer. That’s what he made clear in his Sunday conversation with ESPN’s Darren Rovell and his one-on-one with Stephanie Ready of Hornets.com. Read More »

Michael Jordan Opposes LeBron & Dirk’s Appeals To Shorten Season

Dirk Nowitzki, LeBron James

This coming Sunday, the Nets and Celtics will play a 44-minute exhibition game, the first of its kind. It’s an exploratory measure in an effort to give players more rest, and this is the first test case (not sure how one game provides enough information, but that’s a question for another time). LeBron James and Dirk Nowitzki both publicly said they would support decreasing the number of games in the regular season, but that a 44-minute game wouldn’t have much of an impact. Then, Michael Jordan chimed in, and he was miffed why Dirk or LeBron would want to play fewer games. Read More »

This Epic Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant Fadeaway Mix Will Have You Seeing Double

Kobe Bryant isn’t Michael Jordan, and the Los Angeles Lakers legend never will be. It’s likely no player will achieve Jordan’s lengthy list of incredible accomplishments, and it’s impossible for anyone to gain the aura that surrounded His Airness’ career. Read More »

Kevin Durant Says He Has Killer Instinct Of Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant

Kevin Durant

26 year-old Kevin Durant, already established as one of the greatest basketball players the game has ever seen, is finally comfortable in his own skin. The reigning MVP and four-time scoring champion made that clear in an illuminative, wide-ranging interview with Sam Amick of USA Today. Absent from the piece are platitudes, generalities, and typical company lines that Durant so frequently espoused as he grew to super-duper-stardom since being drafted in 2007. In their place are moments of real, unfiltered insight, like Durant’s admission of the profane thoughts he had for those who criticized his decision to withdraw from FIBA World Cup play this summer.

Kobe Bryant: “Physically, I Don’t See An End To The Tunnel”

Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant’s two-year, $48 million contract expires after the 2015-2016 season, and most have assumed that the Los Angeles Lakers legend will retire thereafter. But don’t get depressed too quickly, Kobe Nation – your hero might be longer for the NBA than anyone’s anticipating. At Lakers media day yesterday, Bryant refused to offer a timeline for the remainder of his career, insisting that he doesn’t “see an end to the tunnel” of his playing capabilities. Read More »

Lance On Jordan Practicing With Hornets: “I’m Going To Try To Get Up In Him”

Lance Stephenson

Michael Jordan is owner of the Charlotte Hornets. He’s also a six-time NBA champion, five-time MVP, and considered by most to be the greatest basketball player of all-time. Jordan hasn’t been shy to practice with his team in the past, and reports from those closed-door sessions are always and predictably glowing: “MJ took Michael Kidd-Gilchist to school!” is a rough approximation of a common refrain. Offseason addition Lance Stephenson, though, plans to put Jordan’s practice success to the test this season. Read More »

Phil Jackson Says Kobe Bryant’s Training “Went Beyond” Michael Jordan

Phil Jackson

There aren’t many people in the NBA with the pedigree — both as a player and a coach — of Phil Jackson. The 13-time champion (11 as a coach, an NBA record, and two as a player for the Knicks) took over as president of basketball operations for the Knicks last spring, and since then he’s assumed total control of the basketball end of the franchise (even keeping egomaniac James Dolan at bay). In the first part of a Q&A with Steve Serby of the New York Post, Phil touched on his time as a coach of both Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan, offering a unique, and perhaps surprising, perspective when it comes to how both trained.

Nick Young Thinks Kobe Bryant Is Better Than Michael Jordan

Nick Young

Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young recently took to Twitter to express his opinion that teammate Kobe Bryant is a better player than Michael Jordan. Young’s more accurate take – in our opinion, at least – is his adolescent one that Tracy McGrady was superior to the Black Mamba. Read More »
