Nothing Michael Jordan can ever do will change his GOAT status as a player on the NBA's basketball court. In the NBA's boardroom, however, he has been an absolute train-wreck.

Almost as bad as an executive, as he was great as a player, Jordan is currently pile-driving the Charlotte Bobcats into the NBA abyss this season. They are seriously the worst NBA team I've seen in the last 10 years, and I would give the Kentucky Wildcats a chance to beat them at Rupp if Charlotte came in on the second night of a back-to-back. 

Which might be just about too much losing for Jordan to swallow at this point, and it appears he may have an exit strategy as a result. This according to The New York Daily News.com:

Nearing the end of another lost season as Bobcats owner, Jordan recently told his GM, Rich Cho, to start planning for a rebuilding campaign. He also dropped a bombshell, telling Cho and other deputies that if this one doesn't produce a winner and he continues to lose millions over the next "three to four years," then he intends to sell the team.

"I told Rich to make us better," Jordan told one associate recently. "If that doesn't work and I can't make a profit in the next three to four years, then I'm selling."

This is a change of plans for Jordan, who over almost the past year has been seeking a buyer to purchase half the team. The Bobcats lost $20 million last season and they're headed for more big losses this season.

Jordan has since denied this claim.

Kwame Brown and the Charlotte Bobcats fans are at least a couple groups of people who might hope Jordan does end up walking away. You can't necessarily be good at everything in life, and this just might be one thing that Jordan is bad at. He sold a lot of shoes in his day though, played the game of basketball better than anyone who has ever lived has ever played it, but he just might suck forever as NBA an owner. Probably is time for MJ to just focus on pummelling Charles Barkley on the golf course everyday anyhow, and leave the League executive business to somebody else I think.
