Michael Jordan Will Use His Name to Hype Bobcats

“Now that I have invested in this process, I assume his responsibility in terms of putting my face on this organization and obviously trying to move to the next level,” said Jordan, who will buy a home here but remain a resident of Chicago.

“I understand the expectations of the city,” he said. “I understand what they endured obviously when the team left.

“They want to win again. They want to feel good about their basketball team. I’m on board with that. I’m trying to get that feeling back here again.”

Jordan added: “I want this place to be like when we used to come to play, it was the loudest thing. You’d hear that buzzing and all that crazy stuff. I want that same feeling to come back here. And it’s going to take some time. Obviously, it starts on the basketball court. And at the same time, building that relationship back with the community. That’s what I want to do.”
