Jordan Wants to Buy the Bobcats

Michael just has to work out the details: “The Charlotte Bobcats are for sale and Michael Jordan is interested. First, he has to put an ownership group together. Addressing the issue on Thursday night for the first time since the news last month that majority owner Bob Johnson is seeking to sell, Jordan shied away from going into detail about his plans. But Jordan, who holds a minority stake in the team and runs basketball operations, made it clear he’d like to gain majority control. ‘I would like to put together a team to do that, yeah,’ Jordan said.”

    Why niQ….of all commentors

    lol my bad. i’m just saying, I would expect Jordan to be more into the Bulls at least. But that’s really pushing it. But I must admit they made a good draft pick in Gerald Henderson. Early Clark would have been good too. but ah wells.

  • niQ

    and by Early i mean Earl. but Early sounds good too.

    Can he get Kevin Bacon and Charlie Sheen to go in as his investors? I’m sure Bacon still has plenty of that Tremors money lying around. Bob hasn’t been the worst owner but that C-set debacle was ridiculous.

    JBCATS. Charles Oakley will soon be employed as director of practice beatdown personnel. Juwan Howard might be employed again, as might Dennis Rodman being getting a call. But the BETCATS really just need Ron Artest + Iverson.

    from past MJ management, he’s probably asking Pippen outta retirement, hire Collins as coach, then overpay any North Carolina alumni.

    Blinguo: Juwan Howard is employed still, as our power forward. If we brought Oakley in to teach Emeka how to be a banger i would really really really like Jordan. And if Bob Johnson sells the team, the screen name may/may not change. I havent decided.

    Will Lee: By reading your comments, i take it that you are some sort of mental patient. i forgive you my unwitty brother who tries real hard to get lolz.

    BET, do you seriously endorse this Jordan as an owner? He’ll always be a slave, never a master. If Money gets that team, you might as well swear-off the NBA and focus strictly on the college game.

    @Niq: why the Bobcats you ask? Let’s see: Jordan grew up in Wilmington, North Carolina. What was the famous college program he attended? Oh right, the North Carolina Tar Heels! And Charlotte is in which state? North Carolina!

    Jordan is notorious for surrounding himself and his organizations with his cronies. He ousted Bernie Bickerstaff to put in Sam Vincent, a former teammate, whom he then replaced with Larry Brown, a fellow UNC alum. In Washington, he fired Leonard Hamilton and installed Doug Collins, his former coach. If he takes over the Bobcats, he needs to shorten his coattails and learn how to get a real HR department to help him pick his personnel. Also, never hire any of the bums responsible for Kwame Brown and Adam Morrison as scouts, and don’t listen to Larry Brown either, because he’ll come back in a month and tell you something else.

    Chintao: but i will have insurance that my team never becomes ‘The Seatle Bobsonics’ or some other odd thing like ‘The Kansas City Bobcats’

  • chintao

    Good point, BET. On the other hand, as a Knick fan, I can tell you that I pray everyday that Dolan will clear the detritus that is the current Knick team by moving it elsewhere. Just leave the team name, the retired jerseys, and the championship banners, thanks.
