CHARLOTTE - The owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, Michael Jordan recently sat down with Sporting Chance Magazine's Sherwood Frisbee and talked about his team which is languishing in last place in the entire NBA.
Jordan, who won six championship rings with the Chicago Bulls shook his head and said he could not believe how bad his team is playing.
He looked out the window of his office and said that the way the Bobcats are playing they would have a hard time beating the Slippery Rock State College Rockets.
Michael did get a smile on his face when he was asked about the talk that Charles "Fat Boy" Barkley is considering buying the team.
Jordan put down his bottle of Gatorade and replied that it is a fact. He went on to say that Charles had called him two days ago inquiring about the possibility of purchasing the Bobcats.
The former Bulls super star told him that he would have his attorney draw up the paperwork and if Barkley agreed to his sale price the deal would be made.
Jordan was asked what the asking price for the Charlotte team was. He looked out the window, grinned, and said that the team can be acquired for $1.3 million.
Frisbee asked, "$1.3 million, damn that's kinda high for a team with a record of 16-52, isn't it Michael?"
Jordan stood up and told him that the Los Angeles Lakers are worth $900 million, the New York Knicks are worth $780, and even the Cleveland Cavaliers are worth $329 million.
He lit up one of his 12 inch Rush Limbaugh cigars and said that at $1.3 million the Bobcats are a friggin steal.
SIDENOTE: Kenny "The Jet" Smith, a good friend of Charles "The Human Volcano" Barkley, stated that Charles will be talking to a bank in Mobile, Alabama about securing a loan to buy the Bobcats.
