Lucas: Marcus Paige Looks Back

The bitter ending to his second season at Carolina left Marcus Paige uninterested in watching much of the remainder of the Tournament. He watched the Final Four, but actively avoided any of the other games from UNC's regional. "The whole experience," he says, "is fuel for going to Indianapolis next year." Oh yes, Paige is well aware of the location of the 2015 Final Four. (GoHeels.com)

Harrison Barnes bounces back

Harrison Barnes is bouncing back from a miserable campaign to become a key factor in the playoffs once again. For those who know Barnes, it was a matter of when, not if. He struggles with confidence, presses too much and still has some skills he needs to work out. But adversity is nothing new to the 21-year-old. He always gets there, somehow. His natural talent and work ethic usually overcome his inexperience. (San Jose Mercury News)

UNC 0-for-This Year in ACC Team Titles?

Barring UNC winning one of the last three championships, the Heels will finish the 2013-14 season without winning a single official ACC title in any team sport. What's worse UNC only had one team finish in the first place. The women's tennis team ended up in a four way tie for first during regular season play. Per UNC, the Tar Heels have never not won at least one ACC title in something. (Tar Heel Blog)

Nearing 40, Vince Carter, Tim Duncan still starring

Thanks to a sensational game-winning 3-point shot by 37-year-old former UNC star Vince Carter on Saturday, the Mavericks won 109-108 to take a 2-1 series lead. The entire game and Carter’s heroics were reminders of a time when the ACC was the NBA’s most important talent incubator, in part because the players stayed in school long enough to mature on and off the court.

Revised pre-season basketball top 25: Post-deadline edition

6. North Carolina Tar Heels: Point guard Marcus Paige played well enough in 2013-14 to earn a fair amount of NBA discussion. Brice Johnson was just as promising, even in more limited minutes. But both players were always likely to come back, and now that they have, Roy Williams has more talent and experience at his disposal than at any time in the past five years. (ESPN.com)

NBA early-entry winners and losers

Winners - North Carolina: The Tar Heels were in a danger zone. UNC lost James Michael McAdoo. It could have seen point guard Marcus Paige and forward Brice Johnson bolt too. But that didn’t happen. Having Paige return is huge for coach Roy Williams. Paige will be the preseason favorite for ACC Player of the Year. His return was a must for UNC to be a conference title contender. (ESPN.com)

Michael Jordan on Life Out of the Spotlight, Changing Sick Kids’ Lives

Michael Jordan is arguably the greatest basketball player of all time, but the athlete known far and wide for his gravity-defying feats on the court and six NBA championships has been working quietly for 20 years to help make dreams come true for children with life-threatening illnesses. As an ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Jordan, 51, has helped change the lives of more than 200 sick children. (ABC News)

Winning 3 never far from Vince Carter's mind

None of us knew it, but Vince Carter had been holding on to the corner jumper he missed in Game 7 of 2001 Eastern Conference semifinals against the Philadelphia 76ers for 4,724 days. The missed jumper didn't consume Carter, but he has worked on that particular shot every practice since then -- always waiting and hoping for redemption. (ESPN.com)

Michael Jordan 'Disgusted' by Alleged Donald Sterling Comments

Michael Jordan says he's both disgusted and outraged by the racist comments allegedly made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. Jordan released a statement Sunday addressing the matter as both a current owner and a former player.

Did LeBron James stare down Jordan on a breakaway dunk? ‘No. Don’t start that.’

During the third quarter of Miami’s Game 3 win over the Bobcats, LeBron James was seen looking at the sideline area as he converted an uncontested breakaway slam. That’s not intensely interesting by itself, obviously. But Bobcats owner Michael Jordan just happened to be sitting exactly where LeBron’s gaze appeared to be fixed. (NBC Sports)
