There is light at the end of the tunnel if we stay smart.

Therein lay the problem....the owner is not smart....quite the opposite actually.

So how do you know MJ is calling all the shots?  You have access to information that we don't or are you just assuming it? 

LOL....well he is the owner.  If that wasn't a clue for you, just take a look at the track record of the team since Jordan took over in 2006....

....7 head coaches and 4 GM's later the team sucks and the franchise is completely boxed in from a salary cap perspective.

As the inimitable Bill Parcels said....."you are what your record says you are".

The Bobcats track record says the business is completely mismanaged, top to bottom. 

(but Ol' Air Train Wreck has made a lot of his running buddies happy w/ big salaries over the years, so there is that)

There have been reports about MJ meddling. Sometimes, well one time, it worked, which was Kemba. Others were not so great, like Frank. Frank was pointed out well before the draft as someone MJ liked a lot. Jordan is a dominant figure in basketball and it is hard to say no to him, even if you really want to. The team has faltered since he took over. Only making the playoffs 3 times. THREE TIMES and all of those 1st round exits. 48-34 is the best record we have gotten. No back to back winning seasons. The team is ran poorly at best. Jordan has to do a better job, there is no excuses. The Carolinas want him to do a good job. Very few want him to fail. He needs to stop worrying about making a profit solely and care more about winning and building a winner. BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

So what's your thesis?

Do you believe the best player in the history of basketball just hired a 5'5" guy from Burma with a background in engineering and just turned the team over to him 100% while sitting idly in the background?

That the story you are hanging your hat on?

I have no idea how much MJ is involved.  I doubt it is as much as you think it is but I am sure he is involved.  I suspect it is less now than it has been now that Mitch is here.  Mitch does not have to be here, other teams would like to have him as GM.

You "have no idea"....I have a very strong idea.  Not sure why you'd ever argue any point you "have no idea" about.

Kupchak was out of the league for over a year and I have seen zero evidence any other team interviewed him for anything.  If other teams wanted him, he wouldn't be here....this place is a career killer for most (Coach Clifford the exception).

Buzz Peterson was on wfnz today and I missed it...anybody hear it?...what did he say?

I would be willing to bet nothing of consequence was said....

....pretty interesting really -- The Buzzard has been on Air Train Wreck's butt buddy payroll for years and years and years and I cannot EVER remember him saying anything for public consumption (learned from the best, Ol' Trainer hissef).

Which show was he on?  There's probably a stream available to replay...
