Mike, know that The Mamba is coming for you next.

MJ is next at 32,292 … We don’t care if you love Kobe or hate Kobe, you just need to respect what he has done in his career. Read More »

College Super Tournament Of Nike Schools Is Close To Happening

Michigan State

Sixteeen Nike-sponsored universities from eight college conferences are getting closer to creating a branded tournament as a tribute to Nike co-founder Phil Knight in 2017, ESPN reported yesterday.

Technically, it will be two eight-team tournaments because NCAA rules prohibit two teams from the same conference playing at the same regular-season tournament. Working around that means the party for Knight’s 80th birthday is ready to go, as long as it can find a TV partner (and ESPN is very interested). Read More »

Jared Sullinger slid over to cut him off and potentially draw a charge, but Sully was a little late and almost got hurdled in the process: Read More »
