What do you know? More negativity staring us in the face.
If MJ leaves I don't ever see this getting turned around. Not because MJ is such a great owner, but that would be two owners that gave up on this team and after that I think it would just continue for 18-20 years until one could pay to relocate. Really disappointing to hear this.
If he didn't want to lose money and fan interest, you don't pull legendary moves like trading for the "dust chip."
Nearing the end of another lost season as Bobcats owner, Jordan recently told his GM, Rich Cho, to start planning for a rebuilding campaign. He also dropped a bombshell, telling Cho and other deputies that if this one doesn’t produce a winner and he continues to lose millions over the next “three to four years,” then he intends to sell the team.
“I told Rich to make us better,” Jordan told one associate recently. “If that doesn’t work and I can’t make a profit in the next three to four years, then I’m selling.”
This is a change of plans for Jordan, who over almost the past year has been seeking a buyer to purchase half the team. The Bobcats lost $20 million last season and they’re headed for more big losses this season.
