The last time Hall of Famer Larry Brown patrolled the sidelines for a basketball team, he was guiding the Charlotte Bobcats to a 9-19 record to start the 2010 season. Brown was fired after that horrific start in Charlotte and has been resting his mind and body in retirement ever since. But it looks like the 71-year-old will be once more roaming the sidelines.

After, you guessed it, another Bobcats loss — this time a double-digit loss to a shorthanded...

Bobcats try to avoid ignominy

This business of finishing the season with the worst winning percentage in NBA history is getting serious. It's hard to picture who the Bobcats can beat over their last six games. The Bobcats need one victory to have a better winning percentage than the 9-73 Philadelphia 76ers in 1972-73. But the Bobcats 7-53 in this lockout-shortened NBA season, haven't won in a franchise...

Being Michael Jordan is hard if you’re not Michael Jordan (Video)

ESPN unveiled a tremendous new commercial over the weekend about an everyday schlub who happens to share a name with one the world’s most popular athletes. I guess now we see why the guy who played Wallace on “The Wire” (and Vince on “Friday Night Lights”) goes by Michael B. Jordan. And you’re probably thinking, Why not go by something else, like “Mike”? Well,...
