I’m a huge Pippen supporter, and will defend him to the death. Nothing pisses me off more than someone who wants to have a “discussion” about whether Pippen was great on his own or was only great because he played with Jordan. Even the way that question is framed implies that there should be any [...]

The 20 year anniversary of the Dream Team is approaching this summer, and everyone is talking about it. NBAtv is even running a documentary that looks awesome. Anyways, do yourself a favor and read this amazing “Oral History” of the Dream Team from GQ. Some of these quotes are priceless.
We found out a few months ago that Michael Jordan would not only be on the cover of the new NBA 2k11, but that you could in fact play with him in the game. Hopefully that would erase all the bad childhood memories of not being able to play with him in NBA Jam. Apparently [...]

The legend of Michael Jordan starts way back on his dirt driveway. Back then he was getting spanked by his older, bigger, brother almost everyday on their dirt court. His brother, Larry, is as much a part of the legend of MJ as anything else. It’s hard to picture Michael getting beaten consistently (or at [...]
Some people around here think I drink too much Barack Obama Kool-Aid just because I mention every time he does anything remotely related to sports. Well when he has moments like this, its hard not to love him. In fact, anytime a sitting President mocks Magic Johnson with a Michael Jordan Bulls reference, I guarantee [...]
I literally feel nauseous from watching the Bulls and Bears this season. Bad coaches, lack of talent, poor effort, ineffective management…I need to stop before I throw my laptop at the wall and light all my Chicago sports paraphernalia on fire. Anyways, the point of this post was that I found this great picture that [...]
Ricky over at Tremendous Upside Potential stumbled on this the other day. Apparently some guy is making youtube videos of all of Michael Jordan’s greatest moments recreated on NBA 2K10. Check this one out, then go over to the youtube page and watch the rest (if you’re unemployed or trying to get fired of course).
I know it seems crazy to imagine, but once upon a time, Jordan was not the polished superstar billionaire we see today. This picture is apparently a photo of a very young MJ dancing around with an umbrella in what loooks to be a dorm room (maybe his?). Enjoy! h/t: BDL
The news that MJ decided not to go to Copenhagen to represent Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Olympics has been buried behind speculation over whether Obama will be attending. While Chicago 2016 supporters would all love Jordan to be there helping, we aren’t trying to use that to our political advantage. Pele, on the other [...]
This is the place to go for NFL Week 1 previews. It has all the spreads and information you need for each game this coming weekend. [Midwest Sports Fans] Luol Deng will be ready for the preseason. Oh and he likes rap and eats Egyptian food. It’s all in his interview with CNN. [By The [...]
Jay Cutler cleans up pretty nice. It appears he “got his hair did” for a magazine cover. [Jay Cutler Superstar] Michael Jordan’s perfection explained. [Hardwood Paroxysm] The best fantasy football team names by city. Yeah, mine is in there for Chicago. “Offense is not our Forte”. Bam. [Detroit4lyfe] Ted Lilly was nominated by his teammates [...]
Random retro baseball player Kelly Gruber (I actually remember this guy). Love this series, when are we going to get Mark “The Bird” Fidrych? [Sharapova's Thigh] Danny Ainge better think twice before stepping to Michael Jordan. A great clip from the 1993 NBA Finals. [Pippen Ain't Easy] Is Tony Dungy trying to get Marvin Harrison [...]
A scathing review of Cubs management, ownership, and scouting. Even though they are overpaying for an underperforming team right now, I would say 3 playoff appearances in the last 6 years isn’t all that bad. [MidwestSportsFans] Remember that pitcher for the White Sox a few years ago, Jim Parque? Well he admits to having done [...]
