The sneakers from Michael Jordan's most iconic moments

Nobody wants the flu, but Michael Jordan fans sure do love a flu game. As we hit the anniversary of Michael Jordan’s “flu game” during the 1997 NBA Finals, we look not only at the iconic moments that defined MJ’s career, but also the sneakers he wore while making those moments. After all, with Jordan Brand giving us a retro version of the Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game,” these sneaker moments can get recreated. (Sports Illustrated)

The joys of seeing James Michael McAdoo play in the NBA Finals

As a fan of the Tar Heels and someone who's followed James Michael McAdoo’s career pretty closely over the past few years, I couldn’t help but smile when I saw him enter Game 4 of the NBA Finals because I felt happy for him. McAdoo has been through a lot of ups and downs in his career, but here he was, playing big minutes in a pivotal game for the Warriors. (Hardwood Paroxysm)

Harrison Barnes' steady play key for Warriors in Finals

In addition to being counted on to knock down big threes when Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, or Draymond Green drive and kick, Harrison Barnes has been tasked with guarding Cavaliers star LeBron James throughout the NBA Finals.

Chansky’s Notebook: Forever’s Voice

Like other legends we know, Woody’s voice will always be with us. The way Woody Durham and his family handled his recent diagnosis is like he called UNC games in the heyday of his 40-year career as Voice of the Tar Heels. Perfectly. Friends and those who heard Woody speak in recent years knew something was amiss, and while he was trying to find out exactly what, his family made the decision that he would no longer be in the public eye.

Only 22 days away from becoming an unrestricted free agent, Dallas Mavericks guard Raymond Felton wants to make one thing perfectly clear. "This is where I want to be,’’ Felton said, referring to a return to the Mavericks.

UNC's Top 30 Basketball Players Ever: No. 22 Raymond Felton

Felton was an important player early in Roy Williams’ tenure. He served not only as an example to the other players as Williams worked to gain their trust, but he was a tough leader by his junior season and an assassin on the perimeter, perfectly complementing the Tar Heels’ balanced attack.

Games vs. Indiana and Kentucky give UNC a tough non-conference schedule

We've got UNC slotted as the No. 7 team in the early Top 25 headed into next season. So, will the Tar Heels have a top-10 schedule?

Carolina Pull Up

Chansky’s Notebook: Vinsanity of Teammates

Dean Smith was a master of tough love, and he stayed on Vince Carter to play harder, play smarter and be a better teammate.

Nov. 21-23, Maui Invitational in Lahaina, Hawaii: The tournament bracket has not been set but UNC could face a combination Chaminade, Connecticut, Georgetown, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Tennessee or Wisconsin. It is unlikely that the Tar Heels will be on the same side of the bracket as the Volunteers as UNC plays them later in the season. (Carolina Blue)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC nonconference basketball schedule

The 2016-17 nonconference schedule is almost deceptive because no one is exactly sure how the Maui Invitational bracket will unfold. Without those exact matchups, the headliners on the nonconference schedule are a Dec. 17 date with Kentucky in Las Vegas and an ACC/Big Ten Challenge trip to Indiana. But the Tar Heels could also face Wisconsin and Oregon in Maui. (GoHeels.com)
