Jordan Stepping Away From Basketball Decisions

11 posts in this topic

Basically, Cho is running the show. Jordan will not interfere with his plan to build a championship team.

This is the smart thing to do. As much as I idolized MJ growing up and love having him apart of the Bobcats, he need to take a backseat when it comes to basketball personnel.

Good cause he sucks at it.

Leave all of the dirty work to The Cho.

I figured he'd already stepped away when he was at a hockey game last season and his lowly bobcats we're close to establishing the worst team win percentage.

MJ admitting this is one of the best things I've heard him do since taking over the team.

I thought we wanted an owner that was involved? You know, a guy who's at every game, lives in the city, and "acts like he cares"?

He's been letting Cho do his thing for a while now, this is really just a public acknowledgement of it

He can be that without making basketball decisions. If all you know about basketball is what ESPN tells you, sure, Mark Cuban makes some decisions but it doesn't mean every owner is like that.

True, but that is a far cry from an owner who micro manages, has to make every basketball decision, and sucks at all of it.

You can be a very passionate and involved owner while leaving the personnel and basketball decisions to someone like Cho.....you know, a guy who ACTUALLY has a fuging clue what he is doing.

Jordan should sit in the stands and wave at fans...not evaluate talent and negotiate potential trades.

maybe he should publicly call out his star players so that they leave for a lucrative contract in chicago

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
