Champs & Chumps - Michael Jordan & Randy Moss
In sports, there are always teams and players who rise to greatness and perform their best under pressure... these are the champs. There are also teams and players who fold under pressure or who don't show enough energy or desire to win big games... these are the chumps.
For example, The LA Lakers and the Williams sisters are usually always champs, while the LA Clippers and Phil Mickelson are almost always chumps.

The Champ - Michael Jordan
It's a fact that Michael Jordan doesn't have the game he had five years ago with the Chicago Bulls. Still, he's better than 90 percent of the chumps out there who take home million-dollar pay checks each week to play in the NBA. So, it's good news for basketball fans and the NBA that Michael Jordan announced on September 26th that he'll be putting his shoes and jersey on and playing the 2002-2003 season with the Washington Wizards. He doesn't drive to the hoop like he used to, and his fade away jump shot is a bit off, but Michael Jordan at half-speed is still more exciting to watch than any of the stiffs that play for the Grizzlies, the Nuggets or the Warriors.
The Chump - Randy Moss
If Randy Moss put as much effort into catching footballs as he did into making excuses for his questionable behavior, the Minnesota Vikings might have a chance of making the NFL playoffs. On September 24, 2002, police say Randy pushed a traffic officer with his car, after she stepped in front of his vehicle to stop him from making an illegal turn. He pushed her for half a block before she fell off the hood of the car.
Two days after the incident, Randy apologized to his teammates, his family and his friends but for some reason didn't think it was necessary to say sorry to the traffic officer who ended up on the hood of his car. It's just the latest case of chumptivity from Randy Moss. He's already been criticized this season for making half-hearted efforts at catching the ball for the 0-3 Vikings. And, last year he said, "I play when I want to play," just days after signing a multi-gazillion dollar contract with the Vikings.
