Michael Jordan sightings in Charlotte used to be rare enough that they had a Halley's Comet quality.

Look over there. Did you see that bald head? Was that him?

Maybe it was. Hard to tell, because inevitably a door was closing somewhere, and you weren't invited inside.

Not anymore. In the three months or so since Jordan bought the Charlotte Bobcats from Bob Johnson and became the team's majority owner, Jordan's visibility both in the community and in the Bobcats' offices has increased dramatically.

It's pretty cool that he is starting to be the great owner, the one no one thought he could be.

Yeah, i'm glad Mike is showing some love for his team. It's not enough to just playoff of the name "Jordan" and hope people will care enough to come to the games and sign as free agents. He's got to show he's the kind of owner that cares about his organization, the players, the fans, and winning!

Yeah, I am a big MJ fan but I had my doubts we he first became owner. However, it is now safe to say those doubts are gone.

Last year he routinely showed up for home games and then immediately got on his private jet and flew back to Chicago.

I will withhold judgment for now.

Anything is an upgrade from the last joker to own the team....

Michael Jordan's ego is too big to not having a winning franchise. He may sink a lot of money into the Bobcats, he may have to remake the team a few times, but Michael Jordan will bring a consistently good team to Charlotte.

When he's in the position to make Bobcats great....... he will. He's already done some good things. I hope he will get Chris Paul to come play when he's available.

Jordan is making a commitment to the city, I agree. As far as being committed to winning, I think he's on the same page as Bob. Both being better than Shinn ever was. Minus LJ's $75 million dollar contract, which seems like a bargain these days, the last years of the Hornets in Charlotte, saw the club trade away talent after talent! Luckily, through that entire mess, GM Bob Bass turned out some pretty good rosters.

I don't much care about him being a part of the community. I think it's pretty creepy that people care to know where MJ eats or watches a game. I guess being the big fish, in a small pond, appeals to some? Yet, MJ has shown a desire to win --- which I appreciate. Still, even when Bob was here, he wasn't afraid to resign Okafor or trade for Jason Richardson, and take on his hefty contract.

I know Shinn brought professional basketball to Charlotte and will always be owed a debt of gratitude for that. BUT Bob showed a commitment to winning that Shinn never did, and if that's not enough, he brought in MJ, who brought in Larry Brown. Larry Brown? How awesome is that.

Ignore his comment ckad79. His favorite player is "Gerald Wallace" and he credits him for being the backbone of this franchise. Yet he claims the owner who brought G-Force in, re-signed him as a FA when he had the choice not to (like Shinn did most times), and built a team around him "isnt commited". LMAO.

Its knowing that your owner isn't some guy just worried about the bottom line, that he's just as much a fan as the rest of the community. There's something almost romantic about knowing that the hometown guy has made it big and owns the franchise, but isn't about to forget where he came from.

And yes, I know MJ isn't from Charlotte.
