Obama attends Wizards vs Bulls game

President Barack Obama took a break from politics Friday to sit courtside at a basketball game between his hometown team Chicago Bulls and the Washington Wizards.

Obama's been on a winning streak in politics, but that didn't help his Bulls. The president pumped his fist and grinned when the Bulls scored some of their points. But he was largely subdued, clapping politely, with his Chicago team losing for much of the game.

Obama left the match early with about four minutes remaining — and his hometown team trailing about 17 points. Though he has called himself a fan of the Bulls, Obama got a hearty welcome from Wizards fans when he arrived at the Verizon Center.

No other night would have been more appropriate to rock your K1X Obama Wizards shirt!

Officials slightly delayed the game, waiting for his entrance. Once he entered, fans gave him a standing ovation and flashed their cameras.

Obama sat court side across the court from the Wizards in seats that are usually taken by season ticket holders. White House senior adviser David Axelrod chose his seat in another section right before Obama entered.

Once the game was under way, Obama chatted much of the time with a Chicago friend, and shook hands with fans as they passed in front of him. He stayed in his courtside seat for most of the game, but he left with 47.8 seconds left in the first half to make a visit to Wizards owner Abe Pollin's suite. Obama returned to his seat by the court in the second half.

Obama got up to leave with just under 4 1/2 minutes left, not staying to endure the 113-90 final score of the winning Wizards. Obama had already welcomed the Bulls into town Thursday, when the team visited him at the White House and presented him with a jersey.




New MJ Motorsorts Website Lauching

Just a heads up, the new 2009 Michael Jordan Motorsports website launching at the start of bike week.

Michael Jordan: The Gift and the Curse

Thank you, Michael Jordan. You are the reason I began watching basketball. Being a Chicago Bulls fan in the 1990s was my rite of passage, and watching you play the game is still my greatest basketball memory.

The shadow MJ casts over the United Center is as real as the statue of him that resides out front. However, there may be a chance that the shadow Michael casts over the second city is a little too omnipotent.

MJ is by far the greatest player of all time, and today's players definitely know that. Any player attempting to measure up to MJ's feats on the court is as impossible as three-peating twice in the same decade. Oh wait, MJ did that too.

Michael Jordan was Chicago's gift. However, as Chi-Town continues to get passed up by one big time free agent after another, it appears as if he is also Chicago's curse.

What Jordan did for Chicago has been well over-documented, therefore forgive me if I choose to forgo "waxing poetic" over his stellar 15-year career. This is about the curse of the greatest.

The fact is, today's great players want to forge their own legacy on the court, and that will not happen in Chicago anytime in the near future.

The 2010 free agency class will be the free agency class of a life-time. An ambitious general manager can go out and build a championship team with a few swipes of the pen, a-la the big three in Boston. LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Amare Stoudemire, and a myriad of perennial All-Stars will all likely opt out their contracts, and therefore they will all be available on the market. And chances are the Bulls will not land any of them.

Not only because the Bulls have one of the worst front-offices in the league (which they do), or because they are always hesitant to pay the big bucks (which they are), or the fact they are lead by a first year coach in Vinny Del Negro that had absolutely zero prior coaching experience, but because good players simply do not want to have to face daily comparisons to the greatest player to ever put on a basketball jersey.

Whether they admit it or not, every player that picks up a ball wants to be "Like Mike," but that does not mean that they want a daily reminder of how they can never reach his pinnacle of dominance.

I realize that even hinting around the idea that anything Jordan did for Chicago has had an adverse effect is nothing short of sacrilege. However, it will be impossible for any one player to win over a Chicago crowd when most of them will still be wearing the first guy's shoes.

As time moves forward and a new generation of hoop stars continue to come into the league that have only seen MJ play on highlight tapes, the legacy of Jordan will slowly fade into more of a distant memory. Until then Bulls fans, memories may be all that's left to hold onto for a while.

Thank Jeremy Johnson of the Daily Vidette for the story.

Stevie Dread

Chicago legend, Stevie “Dread” Snyder came up at a time long before shoe deals, bangin’ video part deadlines, photo incentives and Fuel TV. A time when best thing about being a skater then is that it was totally hated. You were the black sheep, and that was the point. Thats why you were a skater. Stevie represents the true spirit of skate and destroy. And now Nike is honoring him with his own pair of kicks.

Chi-town’s Uprise Skateboards will be hosting a special release party for Stevie's Nike SB Blazers alongside Stevie, whom has been involved with Uprise since their beginnings in ‘97.

Mike makes a wish come true in the Bahamas

Michael Jordan, regarded as the greatest basketball player of all time and a successful business leader, now has a new title announced Saturday, January 24th, 2009 – Chief Wish Ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Jordan was formally introduced in his new role by David Williams, Make-A-Wish Foundation of America president and chief executive officer, at the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational golf tournament. The tournament was held at Kerzner International’s Atlantis, Paradise Island resort and Ocean Club Golf Course in The Bahamas.

Jordan, who has granted more than 175 wishes during the past two decades, will serve as lead figure for the Foundation’s newly formed Wish Ambassador Council and as a national spokesman, assisting the Foundation’s efforts to increase wish-granting outreach.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Wish Ambassador Council is composed of people who are passionate about the Foundation’s work, including the Make-A-Wish® founders, celebrities and national sports figures such as Jordan, former wish children, wish parents and Foundation supporters.

"An estimated 27,000 children are diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions in the United States each year, and I’m eager to do what I can to help the Make-A-Wish Foundation reach out to even more of these courageous children," Jordan said. "Granting children’s wishes through the Foundation has always been important to me. It’s a truly humbling, inspiring experience to see the smiles and joy that granting a wish brings to a child. I want to help even more children have that same opportunity."

The Make-A-Wish Foundation has increased its number of wishes granted each year since 1985, including 13,425 in 2008, the most in its 28-year history. Yet that many more seriously ill children may be eligible for a wish from the Foundation, creating the opportunity to increase its outreach efforts.

"We are extremely honored for Michael Jordan to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation as our first Chief Wish Ambassador," Williams said. "Michael is one of the Foundation’s most popular celebrity wish granters ever. He has a great appreciation and enthusiasm for our mission, and we’re delighted for him to help us reach out to even more children with life-threatening medical conditions."

To celebrate the occasion, Jordan also granted the wish of 7-year-old Donovan Russell of Sacramento, Calif. Russell, along with his family, met his basketball idol in a private meeting Friday at Atlantis, Paradise Island, and he is enjoying a number of activities at the resort as part of his wish experience.

Also on Saturday, the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational made a $150,000 contribution to the Make-A-Wish Foundation as one of the tournament’s charity beneficiaries. The eighth annual tournament will distribute more than $500,000 to selected charities this year.

"We appreciate the generosity of Michael, Kerzner International and everyone involved with the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational," Williams said. "This wonderful contribution will help us grant the heartfelt wishes of dozens more children who truly deserve the hope, strength and joy that comes from a wish experience."

About the Make-A-Wish Foundation: The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Founded in 1980 when a group of caring volunteers helped a young boy fulfill his dream of becoming a police officer, the Foundation is now the largest wish-granting charity in the world, with 66 chapters in the United States and its territories. With the help of generous donors and more than 26,000 volunteers, the Make-A-Wish Foundation grants a wish every 40 minutes and has granted more than 174,000 wishes in the United States since its inception.

Michael Jordan "On The Flipside"

My friend Aubrey Aquino started a new show called "On The Flipside", exclusively dedicated to featuring the world of sports celebrities, entertainment and lifestyle.
It’s an inside look at the lives of professional athletes when they’re not in uniform, from red carpet events to hobbies, hanging at home.

On the latest episode Aubrey was out in Phoenix for the NBA All-Star game and then out to the Bahamas for the Michael Jordan Celebrity Golf Invitational plus lots of other cool stuff.

Mike Buys A Humble Three Bedroom in Miami

It seems Michael Jordan and his 30 year-old Cuban-American beau Yvette Prieto have indeed bought a 3-bedroom house together in Miami for whopping $281,000.

Instead of building on the two lots he bought at the Bears Club in West Palm Beach last year, the retired basketball superstar took a 30-year mortgage and is playing house in modest suburban Miami with his new galpal, Cuban model Yvette Prieto.

Must be love!

According to Miami-Dade County records, the 30-year-old hottie and Mike now co-own a home in the Highlands at Kendall gated community just west of Miami.

It’s a small humble thing, compared to what the 46-year-old Jordan is used to. Property appraiser records list the three- bedroom home at 5,500 square feet.

But it’s anonymous enough. None of the neighbors realize that the six-time NBA champion is on the deed of the SW 92nd Terrace two-story villa.

Said the sexy-voiced Prieto: “I can’t talk about the house just yet. Sorry.”

The lovebirds, last spotted together at the NBA All-Star game in Phoenix Feb. 15, paid a down market $281,000 for it.

They took out a 30-year, $196,000-mortagage. Yep. One of the best-paid basketball players ever actually went to Suntrust Mortgage for the cash.

Why? Probably because Prieto, who’s also a mortgage holder, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2002. It took her two years to get her finances straightened.

Fucking Mike will get your finances straightened out real quick!

Thank my man Dro from for the heads up.


Obama's Basketball Skills Critiqued By NBA Greats

Yeah, we've been inundated with Barack + Basketball news and information. But I honestly have no problem with it. The NBA/Basketball is largely ignored by Joe Sports fan and most of the major sports networks in favor of Football and Baseball. If it takes Barack Obama to draw attention to the most outstanding sport in the entire world, then I am all for it.

Anyhow, here is video of some past and present NBA greats critiquing President Obama's on court skills.

Thank for the info.

Air Jordan 1 DTRT Metallics

Spike Lee’s influence on Jordan Brand, and on the sneaker culture, has just stepped up to a new level. Spike has been behind recent kicks, like the Spizike, and a number of colorways of other Jordans influenced by the film Do The Right Thing. This year the film celebrates its 20th Anniversary, and in order to celebrate in style two versions of the Air Jordan 1’s will be released.

The Air Jordan 1 DTRT Metallics are a slight variation of the OG metallic colorways that have become a grail for many collectors over the years. The DTRT versions that are said to drop later this summer feature inner liners that have DTRT inspiration. Two colorways will release, white and metallic red, along with a white and metallic green.

Look for these at select Jordan Urban Accounts in July, along with the matching shirt.

Thank for the info.

Don't you wish Michael Jordan would do this!


A Tribute to Johnny "Red" Kerr

A few hours before the Bulls paid tribute to Johnny ‘‘Red’’ Kerr on Tuesday night during halftime of the game with the Detroit Pistons, a couple of cynical sorts on sports talk radio were speculating whether both Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen would show up.

What the radio hosts didn’t understand was the effect Kerr has had on everyone he has met during his more than four decades with the organization as its first coach, a broadcaster and general goodwill ambassador. ‘‘For me to come back here and honor him,’’ Jordan said before the ceremony, ‘‘they didn’t have to ask me twice.’’

The Bulls wore their red road uniforms in honor of Kerr and countless clips of him as a player (at Illinois and in the NBA with the Syracuse Nats) and broadcaster were shown on the United Center scoreboard during stoppages in play throughout the game.

The halftime tribute ran long, lasting at least a half hour, but no one was complaining.

With the ailing Kerr (who is battling prostate cancer) sitting courtside in a makeshift wheelchair — a regular one isn’t designed for the frame of a former center — the program began with a proclamation from Mayor Daley declaring Tuesday as Johnny ‘‘Red’’ Kerr appreciation day and was followed by a video message from NBA commissioner David Stern.

The first live speaker was former NBA legend Dolph Schayes, who was a teammate of Kerr’s. Illinois native and Phoenix Suns founder Jerry Colangelo presented Kerr with the John W. BunnLifetime Achievement Award from the Basketball Hall of Fame and Jordan and Pippen paid their respects with comments about what Kerr meant to them. Before the game, there was speculation he might not be well enough to attend, but the UC crowd first caught a glimpse of him in a suite during the first half and let out a loud ovation.

‘‘For him to battle all that and come out and give us a chance to say goodbye, say hello — just reminisce,’’ Jordan said outside the suite during the first half. ‘‘He may not even feel good today, but he’s gonna come.

That’s why I came. I owed him that and the fans owe him that. He made many people smile for many years.’’

One of those people was President Obama, who taped a video message that was played toward the end of the ceremony. The final speaker — besides Kerr and his son, Matt — was Bulls general manager John Paxson, who presented him with a glass-enclosed photo collection and unveiled the bust (from the waist up) of Kerr that will be displayed on the UC’s main concourse.

‘‘He’s deserved that for a long time,’’ said Jordan, whose statue stands outside Gate 4. ‘‘He should have probably been out there before me. He started it all.’’

Matt Kerr spoke for his father at the end of the ceremony, thanking everyone for the tribute. But despite his voice being weak, Red Kerr grabbed the microphone to say a few words.

He called Tuesday ‘‘the happiest day of his life’’ — a fact, no doubt, enhanced by the Bulls’ stunning 107-102 comeback win — and also said: ‘‘You’ll see me here on occasion. What I miss most of all is this hardwood floor at the United Center.’’

Beforehand Jordan paid Kerr the ultimate tribune. ‘‘Johnny is the face of the franchise,’’ he said. ‘‘You could say Michael Jordan, you could say Jerry Sloan, you could say a lot of people. To me, it’s Johnny ‘‘Red’’ Kerr.’’

Although the tribute was emotional, Jordan provided a light moment when he went over and clapped his hands as chalk dust fell on Kerr — just like before games.

‘‘I don’t know how it started,’’ Jordan said. ‘‘I think he had a nice suit on and I wanted to mess him up a little. It became a pregame ritual.

‘‘Now LeBron [James] has taken it to another level. You see LeBron do it, I think of Johnny way back when.’’

Bobcats' Michael Jordan admits to errors

Michael Jordan's résumé as an executive has been tarnished by the name Kwame Brown, his much-maligned choice with the first pick in the 2001 draft when he ran the Washington Wizards.

This year, Jordan has to live with another failed decision: ex-Gonzaga standout Adam Morrison, the first player Jordan drafted for the Charlotte Bobcats. After not meeting expectations, Morrison — the third player drafted in 2006 — and guard Shannon Brown were traded to the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday for ex-Sonics forward Vladimir Radmanovic.

In a rare conference call with media Tuesday, Hall of Fame player Jordan owned up to the mistakes but insisted some other moves he has made as managing partner of the Bobcats have positioned the struggling franchise to compete later.

The 20-31 Bobcats, coached by Larry Brown, have made three trades and used a league-high 23 players. Forward Morrison, 24, who missed all of last season because of a knee injury, averaged 4.5 points on 36 percent shooting for Charlotte this season and didn't fit Brown's system.

"Coming off an injury last year, he seemed to have lost his confidence a little bit," Jordan said of Morrison. "He didn't have the understanding of how Larry expected him to play, both offensively and defensively."\

The Ghost of Michael Jordan Past

Kobe Bryant went Kobe and dropped 61 on the Knicks and looked like the ghost of Michael Jordan past just 6 points better. Kobe now owns the record for the most points scored in Madison Square Garden breaking the old record set by Michael Jordan which was 55 Points.

The final damage was Los Angeles Lakers 126 vs. New York Knicks 117.

The Lakers play the Raptors tonight, lets see how close to 81 points Bryant can get with Jay Triano as the coach. Sam Mitchell is praying for Bryant to drop 82 I’m sure.

Dude is a monster!

Thank for the story.
