First, thank you to Arizona, Detroit, Oakland, Miami, Carolina, Hartford and San Francisco for not believing in me.

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.

The photographer is Chicagoan Marc Hauser, whose resume includes Jimi Hendrix, Julia Roberts, Woody Allen...

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 Grant...
