    The Cincoro Tequila founding team. Jamie McCarthy/Staff/Getty Images Michael Jordan is a cofounder of Cincoro Tequila. He was seen drinking the brand's $1,800 Extra Añejo variety on the 2020 ESPN series "The Last Dance," and fans can sip on it for National Tequila Day this year on July 24. I tried the tequila and thought it felt smooth, looked beautiful, and tasted like caramel. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Michael Jordan is known as the greatest basketball player of all time. He's also a bit of a real-estate collector, a Nike collaborator, and as of 2019, a cofounder of the liquor company Cincoro Tequila.  According to a Forbes interview, Jordan and his four cofounders, Jeanie Buss, Wes Edens, Wyc Grousbeck, and Emilia Fazzalari, wanted a better option for sipping tequila than what was already on the shelves. A representative for the company told Insider that they wanted "something delicious with a smooth, long finish like a fine cognac or whiskey." So they created their own brand and named it Cincoro, which is a combination of the...
    Michael Avenatti, the high-profile civil attorney who gained fame through a lawsuit against Donald Trump and ensuing cable news appearances, embezzled nearly $10 million in settlement funds that should have gone to his clients, a U.S. attorney told jurors on Wednesday, July 21. The latest criminal jury trial involving Avenatti began at the federal courthouse in Santa Ana, with the Century City resident denying that he ever stole from any client. Avenatti – who made the last-minute decision to represent himself in this trial – first appeared in the public eye while representing porn actress Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against Trump. He quickly became a broadcast news favorite with his fiery denunciations of Trump, and even mulled his potential presidential prospects. Then came a flurry of federal criminal cases in California and New York, sparking his public downfall. The current trial focuses on 10 counts of wire fraud, related to allegations that Avenatti defrauded five clients by stealing money they were owed from settlements he had negotiated. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brett Sagel told jurors that Avenatti would hide exact terms...
    In this article NKEMichael Avenatti, attorney and founding partner of Eagan Avenatti LP, second left, exits from federal court in New York, U.S., on Tuesday, May 28, 2019.Louis Lanzano | Bloomberg | Getty ImagesNike has asked a Manhattan federal judge to order fallen lawyer Michael Avenatti to pay more than $856,000 in restitution for his botched extortion of the giant athletic apparel company. The revised restitution request to Judge Paul Gardephe is significantly less than the $1.7 million Nike had been seeking from Avenatti, the once high-flying attorney who was convicted at trial last year of trying to shake down the company for up to $25 million. The lower dollar amount now sought, $856,162, was calculated after Nike removed attorney fees for the law firm Boies Schiller Flexner related to several areas of work, as Gardephe had suggested, and after Avenatti objected to those areas being factored in. That included media monitoring, the company's response to "Mr. Avenatti's post-arrest attacks on the company," as well as fees related to work whose nature has been redacted in court filings, according to...
    More On: giannis antetokounmpo Why it still may be too early to count out the Bucks Suns halfway home to first NBA championship Banged-up NBA star ‘felt good’ day after Game 1 of the Finals Greek Freak returns in style A hyperextended knee didn’t stop Giannis Antetokounmpo from having one of the best quarters in NBA Finals history. The two-time MVP scored 20 of his playoff career-high 42 points in the third quarter Thursday night, despite Milwaukee losing to Phoenix, 118-108, to fall behind 2-0 in the series. Antetokounmpo become the fourth player in NBA history to score 20 points in a single quarter in a Finals game — putting him in good company alongside NBA greats Michael Jordan, Isiah Thomas and Joe Dumars. Jordan was the last to do it when he scored 22 points in the second quarter of a Finals game on June 16, 1993. Antetokounmpo, who shot 15-fot-22 from the field, also recorded 12 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal in one of the best postseason performances of his career. The 26-year-old went 11-for-18 from the...
    Allen Weisselberg cut an awkward figure as a guest judge on his boss's reality television show. It was a rare public appearance for a senior Trump Organization executive more used to signing checks in the background than discussing pet massages with Donald Trump in the second season of The Apprentice, when two teams were tasked with running dog grooming businesses. 'That was your 15 minutes of fame,' said his old college friend Marty Weinbaum an accountant in Florida, according to a 2016 profile in the Wall Street Journal. Neither of them realized that 17 years after the TV appearance Weisselberg would emerge as the key to a three-year investigation of the Trump Organization and its executives. The Trump Organization's chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg (left) appeared in episode seven of the second season of The Apprentice. On Thursday he is expected to become the first executive charged in the New York District Attorney's long-running investigation into the company and could hold the key to whether the former president himself will face charges Prosecutors are believed to have been...
     Michael Cohen told Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday that Manhattan prosecutors investigating the Trump Organization have the evidence needed to press criminal charges — whether or not the company’s executives flip. While on Thursday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, Cohen discussed the ongoing criminal investigation into Donald Trump’s company, conducted by both New York Attorney General Letitia James and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.  “When it comes to the Department of Justice, and I’ve said this in many many tweets, the wheels of justice turn slowly but eventually they do turn full circle,” Cohen said, later admitting that Trump will “fight like the dog that he is.” Cohen acknowledged that Trump has both money and power behind him, but still claimed that the former president is “in trouble.” “He’s in trouble, Allen Weisselberg’s in trouble, Weisselberg’s kids, Matt Calamari, Rudy Giuliani, they’re all in trouble,” Cohen continued. “Why? Because there’s documentary evidence that’s in their [prosecutors’] possession.” While Cohen predicted that Weisselberg, the organization’s CFO, or Calamari, the company’s COO, would end up cooperating with the prosecutors, he suggested that it did not even...
    In this article MSTRVIDEO9:2609:26Microstrategy's Michael Saylor on the company's bitcoin futureFast MoneyMicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor told CNBC on Tuesday he sees a bright future for a range of cryptocurrencies, not just bitcoin.  Saylor, one of the most vocal bitcoin proponents, has over the past year raised the profile of his enterprise software company by investing heavily in the world's largest cryptocurrency by market value. In an interview Tuesday on "Fast Money," Saylor said different cryptocurrencies serve different purposes, but it might take time for newcomers to the digital asset space to recognize those distinctions. For example, Saylor said, he sees bitcoin as "digital property" and a store of value, while ether and the Ethereum blockchain seek to disrupt traditional finance.  "You're going to want to build your buildings on a solid footing of granite, so bitcoin is made to last forever — high integrity, very durable. Ethereum is trying to dematerialize exchanges and the finance establishment," Saylor said. "I think that as the market starts to understand these things, there's a place for everybody." MicroStrategy announced Monday that it recently...
    Virgin Galactic completed its third successful launch into outer space Saturday in New Mexico, according to the company, which aspires to become the first-ever commercial space line. The spacecraft, named VSS Unity, was the first completed flight from Virgin Galactic in over two years. "Space travel is a bold and adventurous endeavor," Chief Executive Officer of Virgin Galactic Michael Colglazier said in a statement.

    Queen Elizabeth II's cousin, Prince Michael of Kent, is the subject of a new investigative report that found he is essentially selling his royal status for personal profit to those seeking access to Russian President Vladimir Putin.  The undercover investigation was conducted by the Sunday Times and Channel 4. Reporters for the outlets posed as investors of a fake South Korean gold company seeking contacts in the Kremlin to further its business in Russia. Prince Michael, 78, allegedly told the reporters by Zoom that he would give their company his royal endorsement in a recorded speech for a $200,000-fee. He added that he was happy to use his home in Kensington Palace as a backdrop for the endorsement. The royal’s business partner, Simon Reading, also reportedly told the fake investors that Michael could be hired for 10,000 pounds ($14,000) a day to make "confidential" representations on behalf of the fictitious gold firm, House of Haedong, to Putin.

In a Zoom meeting, Prince Michael also reportedly offered to deliver a recorded speech endorsing the South Korean company with Kensington Palace, where he resides, as a backdrop—for the princely sum of $200,000. But the company, called the House of Haedong, was fake, and the apparent executives were undercover reporters working for the Sunday Times and Channel 4. “If he is representing the House of Haedong, he could mention that to Putin and Putin would find the right person who is interested in South Korea or interested in gold,” the prince’s longtime business partner, Simon Issacs, also known as the “Marquess of Reading,” told the undercover...

    On Monday, in federal court in Brooklyn, Michael Hlady, aka Michael Peters, pleaded guilty before United States Chief District Court Judge Margo K. Brodie to conspiring to extort a startup company for millions of dollars in the cryptocurrency Ether (ETH).  When sentenced, Hlady faces up to 20 years in prison, as well as a fine.  The victim company, which was not named, was a startup mobile-based business that issued cryptocurrency tokens such as ETH as loyalty rewards for generating user traffic to its clients’ products.   To raise capital, the company planned to conduct an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) in November 2017. In connection with the ICO, Hlady told the company’s executives that he had been a part of the Irish Republican Army, the National Security Agency, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation; that he had been shot at and had killed people; and that he had “taken down” a head of state.

    Michael Rapaport’s defamation case against Barstool Sports was struck down on Monday. The suit, filed along with one for breach of contract, was filed three years ago by the actor-comedian-director-podcaster. The defamation suit centered around a t-shirt depicting Rapaport as a clown with a red mark on his chin — which Rapaport claims insinuated he had herpes. U.S. Southern District Court Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald, in a 64-page opinion, wrote that a “reasonable audience” could conclude the image was exaggerated. “While hardly flattering to Rapaport, this image standing alone is not actionable because a reasonable audience would not understand the shirt to be asserting as a fact that Rapaport has herpes,” Buchwald’s ruling read. Rapaport, who was hired to do “rants” for Barstool Sports in 2017, claimed he was terminated “without cause or justification” in February 2018 by company founder Dave Portnoy. The company claims that the 51-year-old’s tweet — saying anyone calling themselves a “stoolie” (a nickname for fans of Barstool Sports) has “already lost in life” — was grounds for the dismissal. The breach of contract suit,...
