Ok, you're just not getting it. As a businessman, as a husband, as a father, etc... yes he's a joke.

As a player who had to come to the realization that it is nigh impossible to carry a team, especially a team with weaknesses in several spots, he is THE top expert. He had to put up with a lotta BS early on & his advice to Cam here is Gol... Plat... Fugging unobtainium.

In the context of the interview & this thread, you made a dumb ass statement.

I think he's a joke. If you feel otherwise then good for you.

On rare occasions csx is a halfway decent poster. Must be off the wagon again.

So much fail in this thread.

In the NBA you have to be really bad before you can be good (unless you are the Lakers). OKC did it, Miami did it, now Charlotte is doing it. It was designed for the team to be bad last year, however they were unlucky in the lottery like usual. They lost coin flips for Chris Paul and Derrick Rose. What can you do about that?

MJ has actually been a decent owner, taking over a sinking ship from Bob Johnson that burned every bridge possible in Charlotte. He's rebuilt connections and sold more tickets. Now he wants to win...unfortunately, the NBA is a screwed up league where you have to be bad for at least 3 seasons to stockpile high draft picks and get way under the cap.

The Bobcats (or probably Hornets in 2015) will be playoff ready in a couple of years. Just give it time. At least they have a plan, unlike the Panthers.

It's easy to be really bad, though. You can't really take pride in getting the worst grade in your class.

Jordan sucks as an owner but has been tru what Cam is and want to be (Pie for Jordan's towel over the Head)... GOAT


Jordan doesn't suck as an owner. He sucked at making personnel decisions. But he finally did the right thing and gave all those controls to Cho. Jordan has shown great improvement over the past year or 2.

Yes, but it is the only way for small market teams like Charlotte to win in the future. The worst thing you can do in the NBA is be a middle of the pack team just missing or just making the playoffs, like the Bobcats from 2005-2010. There is no way to take that next step. Again, OKC was really bad for 3 seasons, getting Durant, Westbrook and Harden really high in the draft. Now noone is complaining about how bad OKC is as a franchise.

MJ has done some great things since he became majority owner, anyone who can't see that is just ignorant of the sport and the process of trying to compete with a small market team in it.

He's a much better owner than crummy Richardson, MJ actually invested in a good GM and has put a plan into motion, meanwhile the Panthers are a disorganized shitshow.

I can't believe this thread. Jeebus, if MJ can't speak to how to handle pressure as an athlete under the media microscope, who can? Regardless of what you think of him personally or as a business owner.....

the whole "100 post count minimum to start threads" thing was a myth.

they had it and then for some unknown reason that they don't want to share got rid of it...or there's no option for it on this platform, but i doubt it.

Go *** yourself

They guy has been a disaster at everything he's done outside of playing on the court. As an owner and a "basketball" guy he's been maybe the worst at what he does. His team is a laughing stock of the NBA.


You're an idiot. He's not giving a GM or owner advice, he's giving a PLAYER advice. As a team sport PLAYER, there may have never been any better ever than MJ.
