Jordan’s Hard Stance Bad for Bobcats?
Would (Michael) Jordan’s tough stance become a hindrance to future player recruitment? A former player agent, who would be quoted only anonymously because of on-going business dealings with the NBA, said that’s a legitimate concern.
“Players and agents sometimes hold grudges. These people have a lot of pride,” the agent said.
A source close to Jordan said that’s a calculated risk the owner was willing to take because changing the system is so essential to the Bobcats’ future. There are three distinct elements to remaking NBA economics: The division of revenue between players and owners, the system that controls free agency and the revenue sharing among the 30 franchises.
