D-Lee may be returning to NL Central

Derrek Lee was a fan favorite and team leader during his seven seasons in Chicago. After stints with the Braves and Orioles, Lee found his way back into the NL Central when he was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates last summer.

He became a free agent in the offseason and never caught on with a team, but that may change soon.

Reports indicate Lee may again make his return to the NL Central, as the Brewers have expressed a lot of interest in the veteran first baseman. Milwaukee's starting first baseman Mat Gamel tore his ACL and is lost for the season.

If Lee were to sign with the Brewers, he would be reunited with teammate Aramis Ramirez. The two made up the Cubs' corner infield from 2004 until the trade deadline in '10 when Lee was traded.

That would be really cool to see Lee return to the NL Central and give Cubs fans more of a chance to see him play before he retires.

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.
