I enjoyed reading this and thought I would share.
It's a long article and and touches on a lot of different topics but, really gives you an idea of who Michael Jordan is today...

Wow...riveting stuff. Thanks for sharing, Jason!
I saw this earlier; it's pretty cool, too. Sort of puts the $3 Million rebrand cost in a little perspective

I didn't realize his stake in the Bobcats was 80%.
Also really liked this part of the article..
LeBron James is the top seller among current NBA players with signature shoe deals, but Jordan outsold James by a 6 to 1 margin in 2012 in the U.S. ( Also Jordan holds a 6 to 1 margin in rings)
Still has this incredible draw. Its unexplainable. GOAT.
I don't know what to think about this article as far as the Bobcats are concerned. The majority of me reads things like this:And gets a basketball boner thinking about Jordan applying his legendary drive to this franchise. I love to know that the criticism around his ownership eats at him because that can only be a good thing for us.He feels pulled inward, toward his own most valuable and destructive traits. Slights roll through his mind, eating at him: worst record ever, can't build a team, absentee landlord. Jordan reads the things written about him, the fuel arriving in a packet of clips his staff prepares. He knows what people say. He needs to know, a needle for a hungry vein. There's a palpable simmering whenever you're around Jordan, as if Air Jordan is still in there, churning, trying to escape.
A small part of me sees his fiance and hopes her hot ass doesn't turn him into a retired Floridian on his rascal. We all know the power of woman.
Into the crevasse!

and remember guys, I'm doing this for the greater good. I'm taking one for the team.
Wish me luck.
Great article! Really enjoyed reading it earlier today. It definitely helps put in context all of the criticisms that have been put his way, even if they were justified.
SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
