Michael Jordan may be known to gamble and take a crazy shot or two, but after years of working to make the struggling Charlotte Bobcats viable, it looks like he may no longer be interested in trying to beat the odds.
Jordan, who owns the Bobcats, recently told Charlotte general manager Rich Cho to get ready for another rebuilding year, but if winning doesn't happen soon (meaning a few more of Jordan's millions down the drain), he’s ready to sell the team, the New York Daily News reports.
"I told Rich to make us better," the Daily News reports Jordan telling a team associate. "If that doesn’t work and I can’t make a profit in the next three to four years, then I’m selling."
Jordan had recently been looking for someone to buy half the team after the franchise lost about $20 million last season, but it now appears that he may go all in.
