Happy Birthday Michael Jordan
February 17, 2012 by staff
Happy Birthday Michael Jordan, Happy birthday, Michael Jordan! Today the NBA legend turns 49. But considering the woeful state of the team he runs and a recent legal setback, “His Airness” may not be in the mood to celebrate.
The Jordan-owned Charlotte Bobcats are 3-26 and flirting with NBA futility.
Because of the lockout-shortened season Charlotte won’t challenge the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers’ record of 72 losses. However, the Bobcats have lost 16 straight games and have a worse winning percentage (.103) than that infamous 76ers team.
“Everybody wants to make history but you don’t want to make history that way,” said Bobcats guard Matt Carroll, currently in his second stint with Charlotte. “You don’t want to be that team.”
Jordan isn’t talking as the losses continue to mount.
Meanwhile, on Thursday a federal judge ruled that a national grocery store chain’s reference to Jordan in an ad-like magazine layout was constitutionally protected free speech – a decision that thwarts the former Chicago Bulls player’s bid for control of his billion-dollar image.
