If You Can't Beat 'Em, Join 'Em

This is a simple, short post because the picture speaks a thousand words (and a couple billion dollars).

The Charlotte Bobcats completed their fourth season last night at home against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Bobcats finished the season 32-50, obviously missing the playoffs. While the record is bad, the team is performing on par with how young NBA franchises have in the past.

The team and its ownership seem to realize the challenges they face (many locals still haven't warmed up to Charlotte's second NBA team since the Hornets left), but they also need to stop being stubborn and give the fans what they want. The fans want a winning team, which understandably can take time (but time is running out). And the fans also want this: to see the team's star owners present at games.

Bobcats majority owner Bob Johnson seated next to minority owners Nelly and Michael Jordan at the team's final game of the season.


  1. Jarvis, you are so one point with that. I just had this converstaion yesterday: we absolutely want to see our team win however, we need to be courted. I found it most disappointing to finally hear from Nelly on the day of the last game. I mean it's not rocket science; why have celebrity owners and affiliates if they themselves do not seem to support their own team?

    Look forward to reading more of your blog- I have been hounding my clients on the neccessity of blogging, without much
    luck:(. Hopefully once they start reading yours (I'm forwarding) it will finally click.

  2. Hey Jarvis.

    I agree 100 percent with this entry about the Bobcats. Honestly, it seems as if noone is running that team but three figureheads.

    While MJ was a great player, he is a hack in the front office.
