Minority Owner Shares In Bobcats
COMMUNITY REAX: At presstime, the Charlotte Observer article has generated 28 comments on the newspaper's Web site. One commenter writes Johnson "won't move the team but if he sold it to the right people it would be gone in a blink." Another commenter said, "Mr. Johnson may or may not move the Bobcats - of course he is going to say he will never move the team. The moment people think the team is going to move, revenues will sink even lower." Yet another commenter writes, "The writing is on the wall relative to Jordan becoming the eventual owner, and that's a good thing. ... MJ has the potential to be a very good owner, and I could see him becoming more beloved for his dedication to the community than his star status IF he spends the time here and lives here." Another wrote the "best move" for the team is to "sell Jordan the majority ownership rights" (CHARLOTTEOBSERVER.com, 4/16).
