The LA Times is saying King of Pop Michael Jackson died today after suffering a heart attack. He was 50. Because this is a sports blog, here's a video, via NESW Sports, of Jackson playing one-on-one with Michael Jordan. RIP.

Oh, and here's Chad Johnson's measured response (h/t Rookies):

Michael Jackson Dies. Chad Johnson Says It's "Just As Sad As 9/11."

That's all for us. Watch the procession of flamboyant seersucker suits known as the NBA Draft tonight and please stick around for KOGOD's live blog. Things will get going in a half-hour or so.

Thanks for your continued support of Deadspin. Onward.
