Vince Carter ‘slams’ Trump on T-shirt. Controversial or not, he says he’d wear it.

Vince Carter had one of the most memorable dunks of all time. In the 2000 Sydney Olympics, the 6-foot-6 swingman leaped over Frederic Weis, a 7-1 Frenchman, to throw down a filthy right-hand dunk. Now a former Fox Sports and Bleacher Report employee is bringing back the iconic moment while making a political statement. (Sacramento Bee)

Roy Williams at the PGA Championship

If you go to a Roy Williams press conference it is a good bet that you will hear some sort of golf reference, golf anecdote, or golf analogy. The UNC head coach loves golf. So it was no surprising to see Williams at the PGA Championship on Thursday. The tournament is being held at Charlotte's Quail Hollow Club. (Inside Carolina)

Joel Berry Works With Chris Paul

After helping lead UNC to the 2017 national championship, Joel Berry will enter the 2017-18 season as one of the premier point guards in the country. But the 6-0, 195-pound guard from Apopka, Fla., isn't resting on his laurels. This past week Berry took part in Chris Paul's Elite Guard Camp, an intensive multi-day workout featuring 20 of the nation's best college guards. (Inside Carolina)

Brooker recently shared some of the recruiting letters he got from former North Carolina coach Dean Smith. (Charlotte Observer)

It’s Brice Johnson’s Time to Shine

Brice Johnson showed big signs of improvement during the NBA Summer League. Johnson put up solid numbers and looked like he could be a threat, at least off of the bench. In 5 games, he averaged 14 points on 57.7% shooting, 5.2 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1 block. If he can provide help across the board like this, he’ll have a huge impact for the Clippers.

Vince Carter? Justin Jackson? NBA's Best Veteran-Youngster Position Battles

There will be several players vying to start at small forward for the Sacramento Kings, but for intrigue's sake, let's hope the battle comes down to Vince Carter and rookie Justin Jackson. It's not every day you see two guys with an age gap of 18 years fighting for the same job. Carter, 40, is the oldest active player in the NBA. (Bleacher Report)

Lucas: Champs To Receive Unique Ring Presentation

Earlier this summer, photographs of UNC's 2017 championship ring made the rounds on social media. But each NCAA basketball champion actually gets two rings; one is a fairly standard ring provided by the NCAA itself. That's the one you might have already seen. The other is the "big" ring, the one designed and crafted specifically for that championship team. (GoHeels.com)
