Dear Jerry Richardson, Peter Karmanos and Michael Jordan,

Thank you for another year of depressing professional sports teams in the Carolinas. We know that you think that we, as fans, should be happy that you have graced our region with your presence. It was such a risk for you guys to choose to establish your teams in two of the fastest growing metropolises in the country. :sosp: But, you'll forgive us if we expect more than perrinial ineptitude with the occasional playoff run. (No, Michael, last year doesn't count for you.)

Jerry, you have brought us to the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. But, lately, its been much more low than high. We wanted to believe you when you said you would bring a Lombardi Trophy to the Carolinas within ten years. Its been 15 years and, although we have come close at times, your team is so far removed from its fleeting glory that it has become unrecognizable.

Peter, you did manage to bring us a Stanley Cup in the post-lockout season. Your crimes are different than the others. You continually field teams that are good enough to compete and make a run. The problem with you is that, regardless of talent, your teams start off like poo every year. You waste away talent on teams that under-perform until about February, when they make a run that gets our hopes up, only to choke when it counts.

Michael, just stop. Yes, you made the playoffs last year. But, being swept in the first round is more embarrassing than not making it all. Couple that with the fact that you continually trade away what few good players we have, only to get nothing in return. Congratulations, you have managed to make a professional sports team, in the largest city in the region, into the 13th most popular team in the Carolinas, behind the Panthers, Tarheel basketball, Duke basketball, Carolina Hurricanes, NC State football, Clemson football, University of South Carolina football, Wake Forest Basketball, App State football, UNC football, NC State basketball and the Durham Bulls.

So please guys, if it is not too much trouble, could you please try a little harder in the hopes that, one day, the Carolinas can stop being the laughing stock of professional sports.

Sincerely,
Your Fans

Michael's ego is too big to let his team be good enough to take the attention away from him

Maybe trading down will help ignite that excitement.

The parallels are kind of striking:

Trading away the Fan Favorites: Gerald Wallace/Ray Whitney/Chris Harris
The Salary Dumps: Chandler/Peppers/Corvo(kinda)
The youth movement Skinner/Henderson/Gettis

But hopefully, they all come together and dominate soon for a combined 9 championships.
