10:18 AM ET 04.01 | Michael Jordan apparently has an exit strategy to leave the Bobcats, which will undoubtedly make Charlotte fans take to the streets for a mass celebration, provided His Airness keeps his word. Nearing the end of another lost season as Bobcats owner, Jordan recently told his GM, Rich Cho, to start planning for a rebuilding campaign. He also dropped a bombshell, telling Cho and other deputies that if this one doesn't produce a winner and he continues to lose millions over the next "three to four years," then he intends to sell the team.

At least he's not showing us his Hanes.

Well Jordan it's kind of hard to win when you draft very poorly. Also name the last big name free agent that signed a contract with the Bobcats? You can't because there is none.

Interesting how arguably the most talented basketball player in history, doesn't seen to have an eye for talent.

All those rumors of Jordan being a bit of a cheapskate seems to be rather true. He never made a big trade for major talent.

MJ had Gerald Wallace and Stephen Jackson. They were a 7-8 seed and would have brought in some playoff revenue, but he wanted to blow the team up.

But they would never win with those two there. Jordan wanted to win now. Not build a team from the ground up. And when they traded those players. They got nothing in return.

Obviously you've never been to Charlotte. It is a far classier and nicer town then chicago. Chicago was cold, grimy, and full of fat slobs when I went. Charlotte > Chicago in terms of quality of life.

Leave the Charlotte fans alone dude! You have other avenues to make money.

I still remember the picture of Jordan leaving D.C. in a luxury car with Illinois plates.
