Jordan owning up to mistakes

8 posts in this topic

Good article, it's good to see MJ owning up, he's also improved, he's not perfect, but he's been wheeling and dealing with great success this year.

Its a thin line between being a good GM and a bad GM in the NBA. Alot of it depends on luck.

Yep, for example, Dwight Howard and Kwame Brown were similar prospects coming out of high school. Both were big men with the skills to eventually be great, and both were projected to be picked within the first couple of picks based mostly on potential. But each also carried a lot of risk because nobody knew how they would handle the rigors of the NBA, and there were questions about the maturity level of each. Unfortunately for Jordan, Brown wasn't emotionally ready to deal with life in the NBA, nor was he willing to put in the effort necessary to reach his potential, whereas Howard was just the opposite.

But based on what was known prior to their respective drafts, there was no way to know who would do what. So, in a sense, Jordan was unlucky that Brown did not have the proper mental toughness and work ethic, while the Magic were lucky that Howard had the right makeup to push himself. You never know what you get until you get him on the court.

I'll have to admit, I didn't like him making decisions, but MJ has done a much better job of late. Although I think a lot of that has to do with Brown. The job is getting done though, which is all that matters to me.

    • lol so they made Jinder the universal champion? big deal, the b show champion has never been even as prestigious as the intercontinental championship was in the early 90s. the real world champion is being held by a part timer, just like it kind of was in the early 90s whenever hogan was carrying it.
    • What are you waiting for? The final.solution?
    • This reminded me of his speech in Charleston (Boeing?). He talked of punishments for companies that tried to move jobs to other countries. Why hamstring countries so that they can't operate with efficiency and effectiveness. Seems awfully collectivist and anti-capitalist for someone who is touted as a pro-business capitalist. So here, with Carrier, he was applauded for some sort of effort to keep some amount of jobs in America. Yay. Oh wait, that wasn't actually sustainable? Federal Gov't meddling into corporate staffing decisions didn't work out as planned? Color me shocked. I don't think this guy has a clue what he is doing. He has no real ideology and doesn't understand , or care,  how things work or what the consequences to any action or comment will be.  I guess he is just throwing poo against the wall to see what sticks and what will appease his mouth-breathing, isolationist, supporters.
