Someone has to say this: Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball ever, fears LeBron James. And LeBron James, his closest rival for that distinction, is definitely gunning for him. All the evidence one needs was the small media skirmish Jordan stirred up when he said he'd take Kobe Bryant over LeBron because “five beats one,” referring to the number of championship rings adorning their respective hands. He went on to point out that LeBron was indeed many years younger and may yet get five, but the unspoken subtext was, “Six.” That's Jordan's count, and following the...

While scanning YouTube for Crosstown Classic clips, I came upon this gem from 1994, back when the game was a yearly charity event before the days of interleague play. The '94 game at Wrigley Field is the only one for which I recall any specific detail, and it's not exactly because the Sox's starting right-fielder was a 31-year-old rookie, but more specifically because the right-fielder was Michael Jordan. Here, then, are 23 observations and notes on the video in honor of No. 45. (In order of appearance …)

 You can't blame “Fruitvale Station” star Michael B. Jordan for being tempted. “I was actually thinking about calling up Michael Jordan's Steakhouse [today] and just getting dinner reservations,” the 26-year-old actor says. “Just to see what kind of table I would get.” In the Sundance Award-winning, real life-based drama opening Friday, Jordan - who's named after his dad, not the Bulls legend--continues to establish his name on his own. The film depicts the last 24 hours lived by Oscar...

CANTON, OHIO - 2027 I was telling everyone I would just get up here and say thanks, but there are too many people to mention. First, thank you to Arizona, Detroit, Oakland, Miami, Carolina, Hartford and San Francisco for not believing in me. Without you being so incredibly stupid, I never would have ended up in the greatest city in the world. Thank you to that one quarterback, Jay Butler or whatever, for always getting hurt. Without you, I would never be here. Thanks to Alshon Jeffery.

Twenty-five years ago, the Chicago sports landscape was ruled by three men: Michael Jordan, Walter Payton and Andre Dawson. And in January 1988, the magazine Chicago Times pulled off a greater feat than having them all in the same city. They got them all in the same photo. It was such a big deal that TV stations showed up in droves. If you've got $8,000 burning a hole in your pocket, you can buy a signed print at the David Leonardis Gallery in Bucktown. The photographer is Chicagoan Marc Hauser, whose resume includes Jimi Hendrix, Julia Roberts, Woody Allen...

The Bulls are headed to their fifth consecutive postseason - without Derrick Rose, no less - and it's their eighth appearance in the past nine years. Playoff time has always been exciting in Chicago and this year should be no different. So RedEye asked current Bulls and veteran reporters about their favorite NBA postseason memories, either watching as a kid or playing in the NBA. And as you would expect, Michael Jordan's name came up. A lot. Kirk Hinrich My favorite playoff memory, probably, is Michael Jordan in the finals in Utah.

Why isn't it enough for fans to enjoy watching athletes based only on their skills and accomplishments? Why do we need to know about a player's personal life? Why do we need athletes to be nice people? Those questions lead me to the most polarizing sports figure today: LeBron James. Why do fans hate him so much? By reading Twitter and Facebook, many believe James is a spoiled, arrogant, self-centered crybaby who gets all the calls he wants. The angst LeBron conjures has me thinking about another superstar who continues to sell sneakers years after he retired: Michael Jordan.
