HTL Thursdays brought to you by ESPN730: Michael Jordan trying to be the GOAT again

New, comment

Meanwhile, his team tries to do something they've struggled with all year, put together a winning streak on the road.

After a tumultuous start to his career as a basketball executive, it seems like Michael Jordan has his sights on being the GOAT once again. This time it will stand for "Greatest Owner of All Time." He's got a long way to go to win over Charlotte fans, still somewhat soured on NBA basketball, much less gain national recognition for franchise building. But a recent article by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports signals the tide might be shifting towards a favorable outlook for Jordan as an owner and the Charlotte Hornets as a viable NBA franchise. We'll take a closer look and give our thoughts with the help of guest Dustin Phifer.

  • The Hornets visit the Detroit Pistons to try and sweep the season series and start a rare road winning streak. We have what you need to know for Friday night.
  • Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lin are going Freaky Friday and trading slumps. Who's likely to break the spell first? We regress that mean.
