NBA Approves Jordan’s Purchase Of Bobcats
Via: The Urban Daily
Michael Jordan left the hardwood for good in 2003 but he is still making NBA history.
Today he became the first former player to be a majority team owner in the NBA when his $275 million bid to buy the Charlotte Bobcats was unanimously approved by the league’s Board of Governors on Wednesday.
Jordan will take over the money-losing team immediately from Bob Johnson after serving as a minority investor with the final say on basketball decisions since 2006.
“Purchasing the Bobcats is the culmination of my post-playing career goal of becoming the majority owner of an NBA franchise,” Jordan said in a statement. “I am especially pleased to have the opportunity to build a winning team in my home state of North Carolina.”
