Major Bobcats Announcement Coming Soon?

I think most anyone who regularly follows the Bobcats would wholeheartedly disagree with you about Bob Johnson doing more than MJ. Ok, so he bought the expansion team that helped get the uptown arena built. Outside of that he did nothing but alienate the city. When did you ever hear announcements about donating money to middle school sports programs to keep them going? Or the Cats Care initiative where the owner MJ was helping others hand out food to the needy? While MJ's track record of building a winning team is certainly not very good at the moment, his track record off the court in the community is far better. Jordan did more in 6 months than Bob Johnson did in 6 years.

Exactly.

All Johnson did was pay for the team. Then....he did absolutely nothing. He was a terrible owner.

Shinn was a piece of human garbage. He was a crook and had low morals. That is why Charlotte turned their back on him. It was to force him to sell the team. He was just too damn arrogant to do it.

The citizens of Charlotte said that we would rather not have an NBA team....than have an NBA team run by the likes of George Shinn.

The city has not embraced the Bobcats for one reason.......THEY SUCK.....and they have always sucked.

More racist ignorance from you....why are we not surprised.

Still trying to spew that whole "People did not want Cam because he is black" thing. It was crap then...and it is crap now.

People questioned Cam because of the offense he ran at Auburn and the fact that he did NOT display the skills at Auburn necessary to be an NFL QB....but is has been shown that he did not do those things at Auburn BECAUSE of the offense they ran...not becuase of a lack of skill.

He has proven to be an incredible talent....and the city has fully embraced him.

If everyone was against him because of color....they would still be against him.

There were people that did not want Cam because he's black. Hell look at the Marriage Proposition if you need any proof that there's still hate and bigotry right in your own backyard.

But unfortunately for you Bob was born, and he did put up the money to pay the expansion fee for us to get our Bobcats franchise. He did come up with the Bobcats logo and scheme, organization, etc, thus he is the FOUNDER of our NBA team. He did oversee the team its first 5 years of existence. He did bring Jordan into the fold and ultimately sold him the team. You guys can allow your bitterness to hold you and keep romanticizing the Hornets, the rest of us are living in 2012 supporting our Cats.

And then he bailed on the bobcats because he hated them.

No. It's not happening.

Good, although the Bobcat have been a terrible fail for most of their existence, i'm still holding out hope that we can somewhat become at least a midtier team that occasionally sees some success. Being this bad now is just ....insufferable.

In Biyombo I trust :cam:

anyone speculating that we could be contracted?

No way the NBA allows a team to be contracted (at least while David Stern is running things). Hell, New Orleans hasnt had an owner for like 6 months or something and yet the NBA wont even allow it to be sold cheaply because it would hurt the league's image. Contracting a team makes the NBA look weak as a whole even if you could argue that it could help

MJ is doing great in my opinion. I've been to games before MJ and after. I've seen a 100% turn around in general atmosphere, from the Lady Cats to the party vibe going on in the arena regardless of the f***kary on the floor.

MJ really deserves our support. He is an NC guy and our most famous.

He deserves this chance. He even loved the Hornets enough to try and buy the team from Shinn. If there was a name change MJ would be the perfect person to do it. For him it would be a win win.

Mj is doing great locally because his "celebrity" is more likeable and tolerable to Charlotte. As for the product on the floor, hes done nothing. Mj regularly gets ripped NATIONALLY as an owner. Wins and losses, we had more Ws when Bob was here, and more talent. MJ has yet to open his wallet and is turning TWC Arena into a glamorized Jumpman Outlet rather a place where competitive bball is,played. Our fans nationally could care less about "the politics of Charlotte", they only care about the product on the floor.

The ONLY reason the "national" media talks about the Bobcats is MJ. Any publicity is good publicity at this point. They would find a way to rip him regardless.

He just became the owner and was smart enough to hire Cho so I'll give him a pass for now. Our next couple moves with Cho may be the beginning of a lasting turnaround.
