Michael Jordan says he remains committed to Bobcats

THIS IS GOOD NEWS, CONSIDERING HE OWNS THE TEAM

Bobcats owner Michael Jordan says he’s “in it for the long haul” when it comes to seeing his struggling franchise transformed into a consistent winner.

He knows it won’t be a quick, easy process after Charlotte “hit rock bottom” last season. But the always-competitive Jordan says the franchise needs to start turning things around.

He said Thursday the Bobcats are not a playoff team now, “but we need to get the ball rolling in the right direction.”
