C'mon Michael...you got it man!
I consider this to be good news. I like the progress this group has made. The devil you know is better than the devil you dont. IMO.

Concerning this season and the next, I think this is good. Any major shake-up, especially concerning the return on Larry next season is liable to hurt our run at the playoffs. At least in the short-term, I'll take the devil I know.
am i the only one who thinks this is a terrible thing??
Where Trading Happens As Much As It Does On
Nope I am with you on that...I really want Postolos as owner.
I'm torn on this...on the one hand I don't want to lose LB, on the other hand Postolos track record is good. I really don't know how I feel about the whole situation at all, other than being happy that Bob Johnson is finally not going to be apart of this team.

Here's everything from Bonnell
Charlotte Bobcats managing partner Michael Jordan recently told coach Larry Brown he's doing everything he can to buy controlling interest in the team.
"I'm trying my hardest to get this thing done,'' Brown quoted Jordan as saying last week.
Then Brown added, "I'm hopeful that at the end of the day Michael will be running the Bobcats.''
All that was in reaction to NBA commissioner David Stern's comments Saturday that the Bobcats would likely be sold in the next 60 days. Jordan and a group led by former Houston Rockets president George Postolos are the only known bidders.
A lot more on this in Tuesday's Observer, but here's the clincher. Point guard Raymond Felton predicted it's "likely'' Jordan ends up with the team, based on what he's heard. And Raymond isn't usually quick to speculate on such things.I think if Ray wants MJ around, that says something. And if he didn't want MJ, he wouldn't have said anything, to those of you who will say he didn't state his preference.Additional quotes from Charlotte Bobcats coach Larry Brown on his concerns if an ownership change would result in Michael Jordan leaving the organization:
"He just said, 'Larry, I'm trying my best' (to buy the team) and I know he is,'' Brown said.
(What would it mean to have as prominent a former player as Jordan as a majority team owner?)
"He's as good a player as we've ever had in this sport. He's a wonderful guy. I think when the NBA bounced back, Magic (Johnson) and Larry (Bird) and Michael sustained it. A lot of people owe a lot to him. And I don't think (commissioner) David Stern takes that lightly. I think he admires Michael and realizes what he means to our sport.
"I just think we've got to have him involved. I see Magic involved (with the Los Angeles Lakers). I see guys like (Joe) Dumars involved, and it's only made our league better. I just can't see the NBA without him being involved.''
I'm going to bank on MJ's competitive nature on this one. He was labeled a failure in DC although he left the organization in better shape than when he arrived. Currently we are in good shape to make our first playoff appearance in team history. He played a significant role in bringing in LB and I believe the Rod Higgins hire was MJ too, correct? I don't think Rod gets credit for the moves we made over the past couple years (I know, I know...draft picks aside).
I'm not a Carolina guy - but I certainly prefer Jordan to the out of town ownership group. Jordan's North Carolina connection (to the state, not the university), and obvious desire to be an NBA champ in another way, both appeal to me as a sixth-year STH. You get older, you get wiser. We'll have an owner who will put winning first. Profits and good things will follow. Go Cats!

I think Hendo is the next MJ. Clearly already a better player than MJ was at this point in his career. Maybe better than SJack.We'll have to see but, this guy looks like 2nd GOAT (behind Allen Iverson) material to me
