The Charlotte Bobcats needed a basketball coach to be the face of their fledgling franchise, and that’s just what they did. They hired some guy named Mike Dunlap. All you really need to know is he been a college assistant coach for the last 4 years. He latest stop was at St. Johns. Yes that St. Johns. The St. Johns that has been pedestrian, and made the NCAA Tournament once since prohibition. And yes, I’m talking about that NCAA Tournament. The Tournament that lets in virtually every team in the Union. I think if me and two other guys formed a team. They would let us play 3 on 3.

I can’t speak to Dunlap’s qualifications as an NBA coach, but you would think that with his resume an NBA team would stay away. Not Michael Jordan. My man is the undisputed champion of awarding unqualified individuals. After watching him draft Kwame Brown and Adam Morrison, this is to be expected. Also, when you add in the fact that he fired a hall of fame coach in Larry Brown (who was the only coach that every made the playoffs with the Bobcats). You have to conclude that Jordan doesn’t mind being terrible. As long as it’s on his own terms.

It’s popular to say that Michael Jordan doesn’t know what he’s doing. However, I would surmise that he knows exactly what he’s doing. He’s doing what he did for 12 years in the NBA (I don’t count his last 2 years with the Washington Wizards). Making sure he’s the reason his team wins.

Jordan has had the opportunity to concede power to other individuals in hopes of righting the ship in Charlotte. However, he has declined to take those steps. Why? Because he wants to be the reason his team succeeds. Even if it leaves him open to the possibility of residing over the worst team ever (2008 Detroit Lions or 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers style). He wants to do things on his own terms. Maybe it will work out eventually, but currently it has produced Bismack Biyombo, a coach named Mike Dunlap, and a bunch of two guards. We may have our doubts, but it’s all part of Jordan’s plan.
