Michael Jordan: A 'Hard Cap' Hypocrite?

"I can't say so much ... but I know the owners are not going to move off what we feel is very necessary for us to get a deal in place where we can co-exist as partners. We need a lot of financial support throughout the league as well as revenue sharing to keep this business afloat. Jordan said small-market teams would benefit greatly from a "hard" salary cap, and it would allow clubs such as Milwaukee to plan a future on key players including the Australian centre.

HoopsVibe’s Actual Quick Call: It rings hollow.
Yesterday Bobcats buyer Michael Jordan said have-not markets, like Charlotte, charge a adamantine bacon cap to attack with the accept markets.
Jordan is right. If the NBA wants parity, they charge akin the arena acreage with an NFL actualization cap and acquirement sharing.
This is one allotment of the story, though. Owners like Jordan charge to anticipate about how they’ve run their business, and can't aloof acquaint players to sacrifice.
Can Jordan candidly say he’s done aggregate accessible to administer the Bobcats responsibly?
The acknowledgment is no. It has to be.
Jordan, who additionally serves as the team’s arch of basketball operations, active off on or traded for several poor contracts.

There are four albatrosses currently on the roster: Matt Carroll ($4 actor per annum) , Boris Diaw ($8 actor per annum), DeSagana Diop ($7 actor per annum), and Corey Maggette ($10 actor per annum).
Tyrus Thomas has yet to ability his potential, however, that didn’t anticipate Jordan from handing him a 5-year, $40 actor alliance aftermost summer.
Jordan additionally drafted Adam Morrison, who is out of the NBA, advanced of Rudy Gay, a agitating amateur and accomplished scorer for the Memphis Grizzlies.
Clearly, Jordan has overpaid players. This would be forgivable if he was alive as adamantine as possible. This hasn’t been the case.

Before acceptable majority owner, Jordan didn’t do about abundant to administer the agenda finer or coin ties with bounded businesses and people.
He was generally photographed partying at clubs … in Chicago, in Miami, in anywhere but Charlotte. He took time off to appear the Super Bowl.
There was little attack to anatomy partnerships with Charlotte breadth companies. And he capital actualization fees for accessory association events.

Word, of course, advance quickly. And Charlotte admirers - who were austere afore by the NBA and the Hornets - backward away.
To be fair, things bigger already Jordan bought majority ascendancy from above BET King Bob Johnson. He confused to Charlotte and put in the work.
Jordan still bears some accusation for the Bobcats’ situation. He can't ask the players to accommodation on the fresh Collective Bargaining Agreement after actuality able to accomplish added changes to how he runs his team.
Right now, his attitude on the adamantine cap is hypocritical.
