On Christmas Eve, we noted that Cam Newton's rookie year might qualify for G.O.A.T. status. (That's "Greatest Of All-Time" for those that don't know.) So it's fitting that Cam spent Wednesday evening with OG GOAT, Michael Jordan.

Newton, who lives in Charlotte, was visiting the Heat-Bobcats game and sitting courtside with MJ.

Unfortunately for Jordan, the Bobcats lost the game on a Dwyane Wade game-winning shot with less than three seconds left. But the bright side is that immediately after making the shot, Wade and LeBron James saluted Newton with a Superman shoutout.

The bigger issue, though, as our Eye on Basketball compadres note, is that Wade traveled on the final play of the game. Or maybe he was just trying to impress Cam with his "rushing" skills.

So here's an interesting aside: people apparently think Wade was trying to show up Cam. He wasn't, though

"Not showing up #Cam Newton yall-- jus paying respect to one of the great athletes 2day.." Wade tweeted on Thursday.

I thought that was obvious, but apparently it wasn't.

Everyone travels. Jordan traveled all the time. I'm a Knicks fan, Jordan crushed the team I was following for years and years, we didn't bitch about the traveling like you little girls do now.
