Do you think Sir Charles could be the next GM of our Bobcats? He and Jordan are like Bartles & Jaymes, and the bread truck wants to be a GM. So do you think it's possible?

Barkley doesnt have what it takes to be a GM. Now Kenny Smith on the other hand...

I like Chuck but he is too laid back and undisciplined. I agree with KT on the Jet. Point guards and guys who were great but also knew how to defer to the superstars are suited for GM's.

Should have said guards. So far shooting guards come to mind. Dumars, Kerr, Ainge etc.
West might be the only flat out superstar in any sport to transistion well into the front office.

I know you didn't just call Kerr a good GM.

Barkley would not do well. He would use his feel o meter way too much and get himself in trouble with the salary cap. Actually I don't think Kenny would be any good either. They both focus too much on "name" players. They would probably be alright at adding players to a team that already had it's superstar or stars. I think they would both utterly fail at building a franchise from the ground up. Right now Kevin Pritchard of the Blazers and Sam Presti in OKC are doing a masterful job of how to clean house and build from scratch.

Pritchard was a guard. Not sure Presti's background.
Man. You guys are some hairsplitters.
Guards in the last 25 years appear to be the better GM's when compared to other former players postions.
How is that? wow

Isiah Thomas was a PG and he was more than a disaster in the front office. He managed to ruin an entire league.
