Why did MJ just trade away his best player?

MJ is getting on my nerves very fast! He have destroyed one of my favourite teams with this move. WTF is he doing?

I actually like this trade for Charlotte. Admit that they aren't going anywhere and get something in return for Wallace. Also a great trade for Wallace, gives portland a real chance at the conference finals.

It's not too bad for Charlotte. They'll be able to rebuild, which it seems like they're trying to do. A decent SF who plays defence and can hit the jumper in Cunningham and two first round picks. It'll save them some money as well.

I'm surprised to see that more teams weren't going after Crash if this is all Jordan wanted. At least he got some draft picks out of it

Wallace is one of my fav players and I hated to see him go. In fact I am surprised Jordan did this....
But business minded :
He gets Prez for a couple years to man the paint with Kwame , and he gets two draft picks that is HUGE for a young franchise new owner.

Once Wallaces contract expires , I would not doubt he resigns with the Bobcats... He knows it was a business move , and we have to remember Wallace was given a chance by this team to prove himself.
I would not doubt he returns.

Anyone that doesnt understand this trade for the Bobcats doesnt understand how a team like the Bobcats need to rebuild. You are exactly right.

Yep those two lottery draft picks are really going to help the Bobcats' future!

Oh wait. The Blazers aren't in the lottery are they?

Not much of a source but on facebook someone said that Joel Przybilla will be bought out and return to Portland.

Man I left home for class at 3PM thinking the reports that said MJ was getting cold feet were true, and he'd come to his senses. Crash is by far my favorite Bobcat of all-time, I can't believe we gave up the best player in our franchise's history for that package.

Guess theres no reason for me to try to make it to the TWC Arena now, unless I'm trying to see the visiting team.

Gerald's style of play + Portland trainers = career ending injury

we got a steal theres no way to convince anyone otherwise. i didnt think we would get that done for a second with what we were offering.
im kinda interested to see what daunte does in charlotte where he may get more run. he's super athletic. strong. hustler and very smart. he could be a very decent player.

and its not the trainers in portland. roy had knee problems all through college. camby is known to be injury prone. oden is a monster of a man whos body was still coming into its own. its pure god-awful bad luck thats been the problem with our injuries
