And there’s doctors and there’s lawyers and business executives; and they’re all made out of ticky-tacky and they all look just the same. -Malvina Reynolds
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! I think it was Gary Payton who said it last night. I think it was Gary Payton who said Michael Jordan deserves Executive of the Year. I think Gary Payton is right. This isn’t the Wizards. Not Kwame Brown. This is something different. This is the new style Michael Jordan. It’s the new style. Four and three and two and one. What up! When I’m on the mic, the suckers run. Suckers have been running from the Bobcats all right.
Don’t look now but, the Bobcats are fresh off three straight wins in California. Don’t look now but, the Bobcats just came home and routed the Bulls, 96-80. Don’t look now but, Michael Jordan’s Bobcats are 13-11 over their last twenty-four games after having started the season 13-24. How about that?
While with the Wizards, Jordan was labeled lazy. While with the Wizards, folks said Jordan was mailing it in. While with the Wizards, his work ethic was put into question. Nobody’s talking that mess now. Nobody’s giving him stress now. Not a second guess now. How can there be?
Jordan’s Bobcats have been one of the NBA’s most active teams all season. First they haul Hall of Fame coach Next Town Larry Brown out of his two-year sabbatical. Then, they proceed to pull off three trades and use a league-high twenty-three players. That’s not lazy. That’s not mailing it in. That’s a work ethic.
Yes, last year, Jordan drafted Adam “the Moustache” Morrison ahead of the likes of Rudy Gay and Brandon Roy. That was last year. This is this year. This year, he corrected that mistake. This year, he sent the Moustache packing. This year, he brought in Raja Bell, Boris Diaw, Sean Singletary and 7-foot defensive specialist DeSagana Diop. This year, he’s turning things around. This year, he’s got prospects. This year, he’s bona fide. This year, he deserves Executive of the Year.
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
