Things are getting ugly between two of Chicago's favorite sons.

No, we're not talking about another round of the Barack Obama vs. Kanye West feud. In fact, Kanye expressed his support for Obama last night...right before Democrats got trounced at the polls.

But these days the Prez has bigger problems on his hands than politics.

A little-known sneaker pitchman by the name of Michael Jordan has been calling out Obama's golf game. And Barry ain't havin' it:

Yes, the president of the United States just verbally posterized his airness by hitting him in his one weak spot:

Derek Jeter will retire at the end of the 2014 MLB season, and with the year's halfway point upon us, tributes to the legendary Yankees shortstop have begun rolling in.

Earlier today, Nike unveiled a 2-minute commercial set to air during Tueday's All Star Game in which fans ranging from Spike Lee to Carmelo Anthony to a group of begrudgingly respectful Bostonians all tip their caps in tribute to El Capitan.

A group of Mets even join in the show of respect. Fortunately, their faces are digitally blurred so as to keep their lockers un-vandalized by teammates.

As for Mr. Met, himself, well...he probably should've thought twice before appearing in the spot. Dude's got the world's most recognizable head.

Check out the video above to see a wide array of sports fans show their love for Jeets.

Perhaps you've heard, but Kim Kardashian married Kanye West this weekend.

No, really! Those kids just up and decided to get married with no fanfare at all.

We kid... a lot. But while we await word on just how much Kim and Kanye spent to tie the knot in Florence (we know how much they earned, approximately: $20 million), let's take a look at some of the most expensive wedding bills in celebrity history.

From athletes to singers to members of British Royalty, brides and grooms from a number of industries have often spared no expense in pledging their love and loyalty to their spouse for eternity.

Or, you know, for 72 days...

Prince William and Kate Middleton
In fairness, $32 million of the $34 million tab went to security. The rest of the money was spent on flowers ($800,000) food ($150,000) and champagne ($60,000), among other details.

In a new book entitled Michael Jordan: The Life, the NBA legend reveals to author Ronald Lazenby that he considered himself to be racist "against all white people" while growing up in North Carolina.

Jordan recalls that the Ku Klux Klan held major influence in Wilmington, NC during the 1960s and 70s, even providing Bibles to churches and uniforms to area basketball teams in order to maintain their power.

The six-time NBA champion says he was subjected to frequent bigotry and ridicule during his childhood and teen years and received harsh punishments from authority figures when he attempted to fight back.

During one incident in 1977, Jordan was suspended from school when he threw a soda in retaliation against a girl who attacked him with racial slurs.

NBA legend Michael Jordan and his second wife, Yvette Prieto, welcomed the birth of identical twin baby daughters in Florida on Sunday, February 9.

Estee Portnoy, MJ’s spokeswoman, confirmed the births of Victoria and Ysabel, who are Yvette's first two children and His Airness' fourth and fifth.

“Yvette Jordan and the babies are doing well and the family is overjoyed at their arrival,” Portnoy said in a statement regarding the joyous news.

Jordan and Yvette Prieto, a Cuban-American former model, dated for a number of years before he proposed in December 2011 and they wed in April 2013.

Word of Jordan's wife's pregnancy first surfaced last November.

The six-time NBA champion and his first wife, Juanita, divorced in 2006 after 17 years. They have three grown children in Jeffrey (25), Marcus (23) and Jasmine (21).

His Airness will soon welcome his heirness. Michael Jordan and wife Yvette Preito are expecting their first child together, the NBA legend's rep has confirmed.

They've been keeping this on the D.L., but a photo first appearing on Terez Owens shows that she is very pregnant, so the child should be here soon.

The baby will be the first for Yvette, while Jordan, now the Charlotte Bobcats owner, has three children from his previous marriage to Juanita Venoy.

The duo were married 17 years before splitting in 2006. They have sons Jeffrey Michael, 24, and Marcus James, 22, and daughter Jasmine, 19, together.

Jordan, 50, and Yvette Prieto, 34, tied the knot seven months ago in a lavish wedding held in Palm Beach, Fla. They've been together more than five years.

Stop us if you've heard this one, but Laquetta Theus claims Michael Jordan is her baby daddy, and the NBA legend claims he's nothing of the sort.

Laquetta filed a paternity suit in Georgia, claiming she gave birth to Juyana Rachelle Henderson in August 2010 and that His Airness is the father.

She's seeking child support. Hardcore.

"Michael Jordan, when are you going to support your 2-year-old daughter?" Theus wrote on Facebook. "You drop 10 million on your nice wedding ... that was nice."

"But don’t you think it time that you support your daughter?"

If this is anything like the lawsuit filed against Jordan earlier this year by Pamela Smith, who made nearly identical claims, we're guessing he begs to differ.

Michael Jordan is a married man who has moved from the playing court to the owner's suite.

He's also 50 years old.

But the greatest basketball player of all-time (sorry, LeBron James, only four more titles to go) can still throw it down when need be... such as when he's one-on-one with a kid at the Flight School basketball camp.

In the the following video, Jordan gives the little guy a few pump fakes and backs him down... before exploding to the rim for an earth-shattering slam dunk!!!

Or at least a slam dunk. Watch His Airness soar again now:

Pamela Smith, Michael Jordan's alleged baby mama, is not actually his baby mama - and a judge has ruled that she will now pay for the false accusations.

Pamela Smith, Michael Jordan

Pamela Smith filed a paternity suit against MJ, claiming he fathered her 17-year-old son Taj and demanding a DNA test, full custody and child support.

Jordan did have a fling with Smith while he was married to his first wife Juanita, but denied paternity and asked a judge to fine her for wasting his time.

His Airness' wish was granted.
