Michael Jordan regrets putting on any uniform other than Chicago's, says Ray Lewis

Michael Jordan regrets putting on any uniform other than Chicago's, says Ray Lewis

Ray Lewis was on FS1 discussing the future of Aaron Rodgers and in the process dropped a nugget many fans in Washington might not know, and maybe wish they didn't know, about Michael Jordan.

Lewis told Colin Cowherd and Jason Whitlock on Speak For Yourself: 

"This is the honest goddamn truth. M.J. – I’ll never forget this – said to me, “The only thing I regret is putting on another uniform.”

Whether that means Jordan regretted moving to baseball for two years or coming out of retirement with the Wizards, well, we'll leave that speculation up to you. 

Jordan will always be remembered for his time in Chicago, so this isn't a massive surprise that he wants to always be remembered as a Chicago Bull. However, he did have a huge impact on the Wizards franchise and front office in his time in Washington.

Celtics' Isaiah Thomas not yet in the clear with hip injury, will get tests next month

Isaiah Thomas was shut down by the Celtics during the Eastern Conference Finals due to an impingement and labral tear in his right hip, an injury that did not require surgery, just rest. In a few weeks the Celtics hope to know more about his timeline to recovery.

Thomas evidently isn't quite in the clear despite three months having passed. According to Celtics head coach Brad Stevens, Boston will run more tests on Thomas' hip in early September.

Here is what Stevens said on The Vertical Podcast with Chris Mannix, as transcribed by CSN NE:

“He has another follow-up and another scan in the early part of September when he arrives back here out east, and from there we will know an exact timeline," Stevens said. "Obviously, it’s been a lot of appropriate rest, a lot of rehab. There have been some good strides here certainly in the last month or few weeks, but we’re not going to know that until after that early September timeframe... Ultimately, obviously you want to go into every season 110 percent healthy and we’ll find out where we stand with everybody, but more so you want what’s best for him.”

Thomas doesn't need to rush into anything and he has extra incentive to take things slowly. This is the final year of his contract and he's already stated he is gunning for a max deal next summer.

John Wall was back on the court this weekend playing in James Harden's charity basketball game down in Houston at Rice University and once again put on a show like he did weeks ago in the Miami Pro League.

This time Wall and Harden were joined by Chris Paul, who is now Harden's teammate on the Rockets. The trio combined to make a highlight video that quickly blew up on social media:

Some of Wall's best highlights are on defense when he's guarding Paul. It's not often you see that in these types of videos.
