Former NBA great Michael Jordan has taken another step towards greatness in finally becoming the majority part owner of the Charlotte Bobcats Wednesday. Jordan, arguably the best to ever step foot on an NBA court or to ever play the game, is back in the NBA, well sort of. A deal that has been in the works for months now was taken care of Wednesday. Joining his partner Robert Johnson, MJ will try and get the Bobcats on one of the best playoff fun tracks he possibly can.
Commissioner David Stern stated he was “elated to have Michael back in the league.” MJ even had a word of wisdom from Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban “Welcome to my world, Michael,” he said. “Get out the checkbook.”
We all know that MJ is very excited about this change, but there are no people more excited than the players. “He’s known as the best player to ever play this game, he’ll be a big asset to this team,” Bobcats Raymond Felton said. “He’s going to be a guy who’s probably going to come down and talk junk to us a lot and mess with us, but he’s a great man. The NBA world is happy to have MJ back in control. After the announcement, the Bobcats won their first game with MJ on the staff Wednesday, so technically MJ is 1-0.
