In Acquiring Bobcats
THE JORDAN RULES: FanHouse.com's Kevin Blackistone said of Jordan possibly owning the Bobcats, "This is perfect for him and this is a good place to do it." Blackistone: "This is a franchise that’s been beat up, been beat up so much that it’s very cheap, valued at $284(M) right now which is less than what Bob Johnson actually bought it for.” Dallas Morning News columnist Tim Cowlishaw: “He’d be a great owner as long as his first order of business is to hire a GM and realize he’s not going to go spend the 80 hours a week working the phones and doing the things that the modern GM does" ("Around The Horn," ESPN, 6/26). ESPN’s Michael Wilbon said Jordan should own the team because “he hasn’t shown he can run the team" ("PTI," ESPN, 6/26).
STAYING ON: In N.Y., Julian Garcia reported Nets Sports & Entertainment President & CEO Brett Yormark, while "not ruling out the possibility of a sale" of the team, said that interest in buying a stake in the team has "increased only because of the team's impending move to Brooklyn and not because" Nets Owner Bruce Ratner is looking to sell. Yormark: "The current ownership group remains committed to the Nets and to Brooklyn and the Barclays Center" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 6/27).
