Michael Jordan Buys Charlotte Bobcats
Former Black Entertainment Television owner and Charlotte Bobcats owner Robert (Bob) Johnson, left in photo, has sold the basketball team to former Chicago Bulls basketball legend Michael Jordan, right in photo. Jordan was already a minority owner and head of basketball operations. It appears that Johnson gave Jordan the deal that the late Washington Wizards owner Abe Pollin never intended to give to the legend. The Bobcats play in the Time Warner Cable Arena.
Jordan is a native North Carolinian and led the University of North Carolina to an NCAA Championship in 1982 (of course with a last minute winning shot). After basketball playing stints with the Chicago Bulls, the Washington Wizards and the debacle with Pollin, Jordan began his current role with the Bobcats in 2006. Congratulations Michael
