No hit curve ball. Straight ball, hit it very much. Curve ball, bats are afraid. I ask Jo-Buu to come. Take fear from bats.

Can we please just acknowledge that the only thing this guy was ever any good at was shooting hoops and getting away with fouls?

My theory: he looks at every player in the league through the "Jordan filter." He thinks to himself "I could see that guy as an important role player on a championship team." The problem, of course, is that the team has no Jordan to make the guy an effective role player.

Alternative theory: He's too busy smoking cigars and rolling around on piles of money to pay any attention.

It could go either way, really.

Michael please PLEASE just walk away. You could be known as the unquestioned GREATEST athlete of my generation but when you keep doing stupid shait like playing for the wiz you start raising questions. So please walk away and leave your legacy intact .......what left of it.

I'm going to disagree with the world and say that Jordan was pretty damn good at baseball.

I sure as hell couldn't hit .200 in AA. Yeah, that sucks by professional standards, but he clearly had at least some talent for the game. Also stole a whole bunch of bases.

He's too busy banging sluts in Florida to give a shiat about being an NBA manager. It depresses me, I was a huge Jordan fan as a kid but he turned out to be a real douchebag. Dumps his wife, leaves the kids so he can pal around with other ex-athletes and nail hos while getting lit every night.

I think this is closer to it. I really think it's quite simple - Jordan doesn't put that same time/effort/passion into being an great executive like he did being a great player. Just look at all the quotes from organizational people about how he's rarely around the team. Running a franchise is a full time job, and it seems Jordan wants to do it part time while living it up in the retired life the rest of the time.

Michael said that one of the good things he got out of his brief baseball career was that he was not hard on his NBA teammates when he came back. He learned that in his baseball career, he played as hard as he could, yet he was avg or below avg compared to his baseball teammates.

He realized how good he really was in basketball compared to his teammates. He also realized that his teammates did avg plays due to them being avg players instead of due to lack of effort. When he realized that, he was much more tolerable to their failures and much more willing to help them out.

He basically became a bit more humble with his talent.

So if I understood this article, a rumor has been thrown around that would make MJ look like an idiot if it did actually go down. I want my 45 seconds back, subby.

Charlotte Bobcats are a joke. The organization is a joke based on bad personel moves,a new arena that the city didnt really want or need, a botched atempt at a cable station to play bobcat games and lousy play.

I live in charlotte and the town gives the team the cold shoulder. No one cares about them or talks about them. NBA in charlotte is dead.

Not that I give a shiat now, but if he trades Gerald Wallace for Eddy Curry, that would be some of the most epic trade fail ever. I think the final nail is already in the coffin for any potential Bobcats fandom from me, but jesus, that would really do it.
 
2008-11-10 03:40:51 PM  
agree. Wallace has really been the one consistent bright point for the team. he hits the boards hard and will give you a solid 20 pt game nightly.

He was pretty good at banging whores on the road too.

are you trying to tell me Jesus Christ can't hit a curve ball?

He screwed up the Wizards franchise really bad.

At least in Charlotte he can place half the blame on Larry Brown.

LOL Kwame Brown with the #1 Pick.
