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.
