When Vernon E. Jordan Jr. stood before microphones and cameras in a hotel ballroom last week and quoted the biblical admonition, "To whom much is given, much is required," some members of the vast Washington legal community chuckled and rolled their eyes. It seemed an unlikely explanation for why Jordan, power broker supreme and Clinton friend without peer, admitted to having helped a 24-year-old intern find a job. Not only because the former civil rights leader has been criticized by at least one prominent black leader for trading his previous career - and his principles - for a life of privilege.

Marple Township Commissioner Robert Jordan had gone to court expecting to face a jury of his peers on charges stemming from an altercation in the township building Jan. 15. Instead, the charges were dropped, apparently ending what Jordan's attorney, John M. Gallagher Jr., described as "this whole little mess. " Patricia Keates, president of the Marple Board of Commissioners, along with her husband, Robert, and library board member Maureen Muehsam dropped complaints charging Jordan with simple assault and terroristic threats just as Jordan's trial was scheduled to begin Monday in Delaware County Court, Media.

After Michael Jordan announced his comeback yesterday, the world of television shifted into overdrive. NBC, the NBA's primary network, immediately began to make changes to today's edition of The NBA on NBC to capitalize on the return of the man many call the greatest player to ever step on a basketball court. Ironically, NBC already had the game between the Chicago Bulls and the Indiana Pacers scheduled for noon today before Jordan made his decision to return to the Bulls.

When Michael Jordan walks away from basketball, at the end of this season or whenever, exactly what does the NBA lose? Its best player. Sellouts. TV ratings. Income. Charisma. All of the above. "We'd lose the only household name in basketball," said the Sixers' Scott Williams, who spent the first four seasons of his career as a teammate of Jordan with the Chicago Bulls. "People who don't know anything about basketball know him. " People who don't know anything else about the league know that Jordan, a free agent-to-be, has said he will return to the Bulls only under certain circumstances.

When Penncrest's Josh Jordan sets his mind on accomplishing something, it is a pretty good bet the cross-country runner is going to get the job done. At the Delaware County Championships at Rose Tree Park in Media, the junior kept repeating a simple, but powerful, message. "When I got there, I looked at everyone else and I said to myself 'I came here to win,' and I just kept repeating that to myself. " And win he did, posting a time of 16 minutes, 2 seconds, his best of the year and 30 seconds faster than his finish a year ago. "Josh just had it that day," Penncrest coach John Baker said.

The Chicago Bulls' Michael Jordan capped a season of honors yesterday by capturing the NBA's most valuable player award. He became the first player to win MVP and defensive player of the year honors the same season. But Jordan still has not reached his primary goal - bringing the NBA championship to Chicago. Jordan, who averaged 35.0 points per game to lead the league in scoring for the second consecutive season, was golfing in the Carolinas and could not even be reached by his own team to be congratulated, Krause said.

Only Michael Jordan, and only in Cleveland. Jordan did it to the Cavaliers and their fans again, hitting an 18-foot jumper at the buzzer last night to give the Washington Wizards a 93-92 win. Jordan victimized Cleveland throughout his career with the Chicago Bulls, and although he's now wearing a Washington jersey, No. 23 still has the Cavs' number. "Everybody in the place knew where the ball was going," Jordan said. "I've had some big shots in Cleveland, and they keep going in. " With 1.6 seconds left and Washington down, 92-91, Jordan got free on a defensive switch and calmly drained his jumper for the Wizards, who trailed by 12 points in the fourth quarter.

If Michael Jordan hits a home run and it's not on video, did it happen? The Birmingham Barons outfielder, whose career highlights so far have been filmed inside NBA arenas, hopes to find a videotape of his first professional home run. Jordan's homer at Hoover (Ala.) Stadium on Saturday came so late in the evening that local television photographers had already packed up. "It was the bottom of the eighth and a late night," said team spokesman Chris Pika. "We would like to have a copy of it, and I think Michael would, too. " So the Barons are trying to get the word out to anyone in the record crowd of 13,751 who might have had a camera running when Jordan hit his homer.

With Michael Jordan back in the Big Apple, this NBA labor talk thing was perceived to be growing serious. Perceptions, of course, have been known to disappoint. David Falk, agent of His Airness, did say Jordan wouldn't become involved again until he thought discussions aimed at breaking the five-month-old NBA labor stalemate reached a more serious stage. Jordan's silky touch didn't seem to have much effect yesterday, with no new proposals offered in meetings between league and union officials in New York that didn't end until nearly midnight.

When he heard the news that John Kruk had been signed for three years at $7.2 million, he had mixed feelings - understandably so. Basically, he was happy for his teammate. But he wasn't so happy for himself. As Ricky Jordan put it yesterday, "(Kruk) is a good player, and he deserves what he got. As you know, the guy can play some first base. People talk about Andres Galarraga and Will Clark, but I think he's one of the top three. He can hit and play defense. It's no surprise that they wanted to sign him. " But Jordan knows what this means for him: another season in limbo.

Jordan Matthews was the Eagles receiver with the lowest percentage of dropped passes last season, which, given his competition for that distinction, is a bit like being the least aromatic elephant in the circus. Pretty much, they all stunk. Still, it was better to be Matthews, who, according to sportingcharts.com, had just five drops in 128 targeted passes. Defining a drop isn't that easy, but guys like Riley Cooper, Nelson Agholor, and Josh Huff nearly doubled Matthews' percentage, so it's a reasonable measure to adopt.

Perhaps the most apt place to interview comedian Jordan Peele and rapper/actor Method Man about their new movie Keanu , co-starring a flat-out adorable kitten, is Brewerytown's Le Cat Cafe, where as Peele and Method Man discussed the action comedy, the first attempt at movie stardom for Peele and his comedy partner Keegan-Michael Key, cats hopped on furniture and slid under the table. Peele bestowed some cat-rap names. "We've got Mewdacris up there," he said, pointing to one kitty.

Jordan Matthews last took part in an Eagles practice almost four months ago. There was uncertainty about who would coach the Eagles, who would play quarterback, and even how he would be used. The Eagles return to the practice field this week for voluntary minicamp with answers to all those questions. New coach Doug Pederson will lead his team in drills for the first time on Tuesday. Sam Bradford is the starting quarterback after re-signing with the team before free agency. He will participate in his first spring practice since 2013, one month after hosting Matthews and Zach Ertz at his home in Oklahoma.

W hen Jordan Burroughs looked at his name high on the wall of the gymnasium, he also saw two numbers. One was his career wins: 115. One was his career losses: 20. Back at Winslow Township High School for an informal meet-and-greet on Tuesday night, Burroughs joked about his victory total, which places him about 175th on South Jersey's all-time list. "I thought I had more," Burroughs said with a smile. But it's the other number that underlines the lesson that Burroughs' astounding post-high school success provides for other wrestlers, and for athletes in other sports.

THE EAGLES' coaching staff was thrilled to discover what it had in Jordan Hicks last season. Hicks, a third-round rookie from Texas, stepped in as a starter in Week 3 and constantly made plays, rarely stepped wrong. He picked up the system effortlessly, showed speed, instincts, toughness. If Hicks was "Simba" to DeMeco Ryans' "Mufasa," as former coach Chip Kelly and Hicks' teammates alleged, Hicks' ability to think in sync with Ryans allowed Ryans to be much more effective running down prey than he was after Hicks went down with a torn pectoral tendon, in the eighth game of the season, at Dallas.

IOWA CITY, Iowa - This is how scary a wrestler three-time world champion Jordan Burroughs has become: The two highest-ranked competitors in his weight class, 163 pounds, jumped up one class at the U.S. Olympic team trials to avoid him. Last year's world medal earned Burroughs, of Sicklerville and Winslow Township High in Camden County, an automatic berth in Sunday night's best-of-three trials championship series at the University of Iowa. That advantage helped Burroughs, the defending Olympic champion, rout Andrew Howe in a rematch of 2012 trials finalists, 9-3 and 10-0.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Young love runs hot. When Jordan Spieth strode Thursday to the 12th tee, the guts of Amen Corner, he was reviewing what had just happened on treacherous 11th: a risky, 218-yard approach shot and a 10-foot par save, typical of Spieth's opening-round brilliance. Suddenly, he found himself awash in adoration. Thousands of fans gave him a standing ovation. He tipped his cap once, twice, three times, and then he blushed a little bit. "It was one of the coolest moments I've ever had here," Spieth acknowledged.

WITH THEIR matching white headbands, dark shoes and white socks, Korey Billbury and Jordan Price looked like twins wearing different colors on the floor of Tom Gola Arena. For large portions of the game, wherever Price was on the La Salle offensive end, Billbury stood right with him, making it nearly impossible to get the ball in the hands of La Salle's leading scorer, let alone get him a good look at the basket. Virginia Commonwealth, the top team in the Atlantic 10, knew the best way to beat the Explorers, the league's cellar-dweller: keep the league's second-leading scorer off the scoreboard as much as possible.
