Bears reinstate running back Unga

Running back Harvey Unga, who has yet to appear in a regular-season game, is back with the Bears after being reinstated from the reserveleft squad list Monday.

Unga played in the preseason, but was placed on the left squad list on Sept. 3, 2011 when he was excused from training camp for personal reasons.

The former star at BYU was selected in the 2010 supplemental draft and spent his rookie season on injured reserve. At 6-foot, 237 pounds, Unga could serve as a fullback for Matt Forte, Kahlil Bell and Michael Bush.

He had 27 yards on nine carries in preseason action last year.

Steve Kerr: 'By the way, I kicked MJ's ass'

The story of Steve Kerr and Michael Jordan getting into a fight in training camp has become infamous in NBA history.

It was the undersized guard who was a 3-point specialist standing up to the greatest player ever who was notorious for his competitive nature. Kerr still brings it up every so often, and made a reference to it (to comedic effect) on Tuesday.

"By the way, I kicked MJ's ass," Kerr said.

At the beginning of the clip, the Warriors coach is talking about an on-court confrontation between Draymond Green and Kevin Durant, which carried over to the locker room after the game.

Kerr's altercation with Jordan took place in 1995, the summer before the Bulls went 72-10 and won the fourth of the team's six titles. The two got matched up in a scrimmage and Jordan, ever the trash talker, starting jawwing at Kerr. Kerr didn't back down, which led to the two needing to be separated.

Apparently Kerr can still laugh about the whole thing, too.
