Hall of Fame Rumors

According to the 53-year-old, Jordan and he agreed on a presentation process a long time ago. That was when Jordan was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Per Kukoc, both athletes were playing golf, and Toni asked Michael whether he would like to be the presenter if Kukoc ever enter the HOF. Then Jordan interrupted Kukoc and promised that he would be the one to take Toni into the House. Many years have passed. When Kukoc found out that this would happen, he sent Jordan a message asking if that promise was worth it. MJ replied with a short message: “If I promised you, then you know there is no problem.”

CJ McCollum is the embodiment of a movement among NBA players who enjoy wine beyond a glass at dinner. All-Stars such as LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony of the Los Angeles Lakers, Chris Paul and Devin Booker of the Phoenix Suns, and notable players such as retired Channing Frye, New Orleans Pelicans’ Josh Hart, Sacramento Kings’ Moe Harkless and Seth Curry of the Philadelphia 76ers are all immersed in the wine culture. Hall of Fame guard Dwyane Wade has had his own brand, Wade Cellars, since 2014.

Noah, of course, reached his most prominent playing career heights under Thibodeau, earning two All-Star Game berths, an All-NBA designation and winning Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2014 when he finished fourth in most valuable player voting. Always passionate and prideful, Noah resonated deeply among a fan base that surely is itching to show him some love. And close friends Derrick Rose and Taj Gibson will be on the opposing bench. Beyond Noah, the Bulls also plan to honor Toni Kukoc’s recent induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame at an Oct. 30 game against the Utah Jazz. And there also will be a Noah bobblehead giveaway, again against the Knicks, courtesy of NBC Sports Chicago on Nov. 21.
