Michael Jordan's greatest NBA Finals moments

JUNE 5, 1991. L.A. LAKERS AT BULLS. Flight 7:47 took off with just under 8 minutes left in Game 2 of the Michael vs. Magic Finals. In the midst of a 15-2 run that sank the Lakers – for the series, it turned out, after an L.A. win in Game 1 created much nervousness in Chicago – Jordan scored on a wouldn't-believe-it-unless-I-saw-it-with-my-own-eyes shot.

UNC Basketball: Brice Johnson’s biggest moments as a Tar Heel

Go through a dictionary and you’ll find few words that can’t be used to describe the career of UNC forward Brice Johnson. The first three years of his tenure at UNC were defined by maddening inconsistency and flashes of greatness all culminating into a senior season that would go down as one of the best in North Carolina history.

Michael Jordan used to take money from Scottie Pippen by betting him on pre-recorded races

Golden State's James Michael McAdoo sees 1st NBA Finals action in a cameo role

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr unveiled one novel response to his team’s 30-point loss Wednesday night in Game 3: He sent James Michael McAdoo into Game 4 on Friday night.

Harrison Barnes has Warriors convinced of his likely $20M value, sources say

Harrison Barnes, so often the forgotten Warrior, has quietly been Golden State’s most consistent player in this NBA Finals, averaging 12.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game while shooting 51.3 percent from the field and 42.9 percent on 3-pointers. Getting his stroke back represents good timing. When July 1 hits, Barnes will be eligible for restricted free agency. (Sporting News)

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. Even with a physical task on the defensive end, Barnes has been a consistence force on offense. (Carolina Blue)

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. Felton, who turns 32 on June 26, earned $4.54 million last season and could possibly double that figure once he becomes a free agent. (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)

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.
