Are n*ggas really trying to hate on MJ for being with the small market side?

Ask yourself, would you go against your own self interest? He's a owner now, he's trying to maximize his dollars to the best of his abilities.. Can't hate on him for that, the reason why Bob Johnson sold them was because he was losing money by keeping that team.. Mike not trying to go down the same path..

He didnt deal with the same issues. Back in his day players weren't grossly overpaid. He was the best in the league in his prime and was clearing around 3-5mil a year. The Bulls knew it was such a travesty that he had been vastly underpaid so long that they offered him 30+ million dollar deals his last couple seasons as backpay.

Jordan and the owners have a business to run so they have the right to not want to give players more of the revenue than they get.

but he was probably grossly underpaid i realize youre just responding to dude comment, but this is the core problem. what happened to players salaries in the past is irrelevant. lebron, kobe, wade etc are some of the most famous people on earth. hell just a few years ago, yao ming was literally the face of the league to 1 billion people in China, and people in this thread saying players overpaid. logically, the only way the players can be overpaid is if youre admitting that the league itself made too much money. because essentially, the players are responsible for all of its worth. and youre right, they have a business to run. but that doesnt make it "good" business

The NBA PA should have gotten MJ to run it instead of Billy Hunter... Billy gonna cave to the these owners... They should split it 50/50 and give the players incentives...

MJ fought for that 57% the players got, now he's doing the same for the other side... It's just business... But they're losing fans left and right...

When did Chris Paul stop being a superstar?
Cp3 was drafted by Charlotte, didn't go there by choice. In fact off the top of my head no one of note has voluntarily went to either Franchise in Charlotte ever. They drafted Zo and grand mama.

no sir, Raymond Felton was drafted the year Chris Paul, and Derron Williams came out. How old are you again?



Chris Paul being with Team Jordan, our ability to pay a max contract, and the fact that the NBA owns the hornets will all play a big part(do you think the NBA as a whole wants to see him go to the KNICKS? I think not)
