Bobcats Minority Owner Says Rebuild Is Tough, But Fans Still See Entertainment Value
Published April 10, 2012
ROUGH TIMES: In DC, Rick Maese wrote Bobcats Owner Michael Jordan is “the game’s greatest player,” but he has now “become one of its most curious owners, a fanatical competitor who can’t field a competitive team.” Former Bobcats head coach Sam Vincent said, “The work he put in to be a great player and the work you put in to be a great executive, those are different things. That additional time you spend on jump shots, running, dunking, I don’t know if he puts in that same amount of time as an executive or if he even cares to” (WASHINGTON POST, 4/8). In Charlotte, Scott Fowler noted he watched the Bobcats “in person for the first time in a few weeks Saturday night,” and was "struck by how far, far, far away the Bobcats are from being a legitimately good NBA team” (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 4/9).
