first time poster. I saw this blog on yahoo sports and it just really ticked me off!!!! This is the reason why we aren't evolving like we should...This loser. At least George Shinn new his players names
that is embarrassing
I swear I'm not pro-Johnson; he is a terrible public speaker, doesn't appear to have any common sense, whining about local businesses not stepping up and supporting the team like they should last in the Observer last April, and is a businessman before anything else, which conflicts with owning a sports team unless you're a Steinbrenner. Still, I wasn't all that put-off by video.
He acknowledges he's turned over all basketball decisions to MJ, and other than May, he got everything else right, even DJ's college. Yes, he skirted the ticket sales issue. What, would you rather he come out and say that sales are terrible? This could lead him down the path to whining about non-support and it'd look even worse. Instead of focusing on the negative of ticket sales, he focused on the positives the team has made in the off-season.
As for the joke about Cuban going first because he's got the team with the better record: I actually thought that was funny.
"The Charlotte Hornets name has been a mainstay throughout the region for many years, and we are excited to announce our intention to re-establish this historic brand. We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
Mavs = good team = great ticket sales
Bobcats = bad team = crappy ticket sales
It's a good thing he ignored the question but seriously Scott May and "the field" WTF BOB JOHNSON!
At least he wants to put the best players on the field
......Go Bobcats!!!!! (Hornets) ..
