It's been years since Michael Jordan faced a pesky guard like the little kid he dunked on at his basketball camp over the weekend. Jordan proved that his post game is still formidable even at age 50. It will be a while before another youngster even thinks about guarding Jordan in the paint again. Don't let the grey hairs fool ya. Jordan is not ashamed to posterize a snot-nosed kid.

Doc Rivers Son Defends Him On Twitter

The sports world is buzzing today about the dismantling of the NBA's Boston Celtics. The team's stars Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce were traded to the Brooklyn Nets, while their coach Doc Rivers is heading to the Los Angeles Clippers.

ESPN's Bill Simmons took Rivers' departure unusually hard during a mini meltdown on ESPN's live coverage of the NBA draft.

"I would like to call him a idiot but I'm too classy for that, said Rivers, responding to Simmons' comment that Rivers "quit" on the Celtics.

The last time I checked, this was still a free country where a coach has the freedom to accept a $21 million contract to take his talents to another team.

Flo Rida's Manager Banned from the NBA Finals

Rapper Flo Rida and his manager, Freezy, will not attend game 6 or 7 of the NBA Finals at the American Airlines Arena in Miami. That's because the NBA front office has banned Flo Rida's manager for behaving a bit too ghetto during the games.

Flo Rida, who has been a fixture at court side during the playoffs, will not be in his pricey court side seat tonight for game 6 of the matchup between defending champions Miami heat and the San Antonio Spurs.

“We ride together,” said Freezy, whose real name is Lee Prince. Flo Rida flew to Las Vegas after hearing about his manager's banishment. He will watch game 6 there, his manager says.

Freezy, who is still in Miami, told the Miami Herald that NBA attorneys warned him he will be arrested if he showed up at the arena tonight.

“This is an act of discrimination,” he told the Herald. “I am not an outside celebrity. I am a local fan and I’m gonna get emotional watching my team play,” Freezy said.

Miami police officers escorted Freezy from game 7 of the Eastern Conference series between the Heat and the Indiana Pacers after he threatened to see one of Indiana's players outside after the game. Miami won that series in 7 games. They will also defend their NBA title in 7 games.

    With the HEAT comfortably in the lead by double digits late in the 4th quarter, Indiana coach Frank Vogel emptied his bench. Reserve forward Jeff Pendergraph -- who played just 3 minutes in the entire series -- wanted to make the most of his 2 minutes in the spotlight.

    The 6 ft 9 in. Pendergraph set a hard screen on 6' 2" Heat guard Norris Cole forcing Cole to fight through the screen. Pendergraph shoved Cole who responded by assuming a boxer's stance. Both players were ejected.
