This week's cover story | The Michael Jordan backlash
Here's a sneak peek at what's coming up in this week's Time Out Chicago, on newsstands tomorrow:
- Few would question whether Michael Jordan was the greatest basketball player of all time. But with the Charlotte Bobcats burdended with the worst season in NBA history (not to mention his other recent failings), people's faith in all things MJ is rattled. Surprisingly, it seems Jordan's cool exterior is rattled by this as well. TOC's editor in chief Frank Sennett examines Jordan's slippery slope.
- And there was much Gen-Xer rejoicing: Theater Wit is premiering a stage adaptation of Trainspotting, and this time the action is set in Kansas City.
- "Somebody said to me that I speak English almost like somebody for whom English is not their first language," and more awesome things Christopher Walken said to Film editor Ben Kenigsberg in advance of his appearance at the Chicago International Film Festival.
