It was recently reported that Michael Jordan would sell the Charlotte Bobcats if they can’t turn things around in the next few years. However, Jordan replied to the statement saying that he is 100-percent committed to the team.
“I was disturbed to hear the false report that I intend to sell my majority interest in the Charlotte Bobcats,” Jordan said in a statement. “I am 100 percent committed to building the Bobcats into a contender and have no plans to sell the team.”
Jordan bought the team in March 2010, but since then, the Bobcats have struggled and now stand at a league-worst 7-43 record.
However, the future does look bright for the team with a shot-blocking big man in Bismack Biyombo. They’ll also be led by former college National Champion, Kemba Walker, at point guard. And if they’re lucky enough to win the lottery, they can land Anthony Davis to pair up with Biyombo next season.
We’ll see what Jordan does, but according to his NBA career, he doesn’t quit that easily.
