    Alex Wong/Getty Images Last week, the New York Times reported that President Donald Trump asked South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) about being added to Mount Rushmore. Although he denied the claims, one oddsmaker has put the chance of that happening at 100/1 — rating him below Oprah Winfrey but above Kim Kardashian on the list. While Trump said he did not talk to Noem about adding his face to Mount Rushmore, and called the reports “fake news,” the president also said he was not opposed to the prospect. “Never suggested it although, based on all of the many things accomplished during the first 3 1/2 years, perhaps more than any other Presidency, sounds like a good idea to me!” Trump wrote on Twitter...

    (CBS)- The debate over who is the greatest of all time centering around Michael Jordan and LeBron James has been a topic of contention in sports for the last several years. On Tuesday, as part of a radio interview with Fox Sports Radio, President Donald Trump sided with those who choose Michael Jordan.

    To Charles Oakley, Michael Jordan the owner and Michael Jordan the former teammate are two different things. So when Jordan tried to help de-escalate the feud between Oakley and James Dolan in 2017 — calling for a talk with the two and commissioner Adam Silver after the ex-Knick was arrested and charged with assault following an incident at the Garden — Oakley didn’t fully appreciate it. “Michael Jordan shouldn’t have gotten involved,” Oakley, who was teammates with Jordan for three years on the Bulls, said in a recent interview with VLADTV. “It wasn’t nothing for him to do.

An original report came out back in May that Pippen was “so angry” and “beyond livid” at Michael Jordan for how he was portrayed in ESPN’s “The Last Dance” docuseries.

Jordan widely praised Pippen in the documentary that chronicled the Bulls’ dynasty in the 1990s as the best teammate he ever had — both players were elected to the Hall of Fame. But Jordan called out Pippen in the second episode for making a “selfish” decision to delay offseason surgery on a ruptured tendon in his ankle until after the start of the 1997-98 season.
