The Charlotte Bobcats just suffered through the worst season in NBA history, but management is confident that their fortunes will turn at tonight’s NBA draft.
Bobcats majority owner and head of basketball operations Michael Jordan announced Thursday that his sources are telling him that Anthony Davis, arguably the best prospect in the draft, will be available when the Bobcats make their selection at number two.
“We know he’s a project,” Jordan said, “but there’s just something about this kid that we really like.”
Jordan, who has been widely criticized for his decision-making as an executive, says that he is fully committed to taking Davis with the second overall pick in the draft. This despite the fact that Davis has been considered the consensus number one pick since his first game at the University of Kentucky last season.
When asked what he would do if Davis is selected by the New Orleans Hornets with the first pick in the draft, Jordan criticized the media for their lack of knowledge of the situation.
“You guys think you know what’s going on, but you’ve never played the game,” said Jordan, “I have reliable sources that have been with me since day one, and I think my track record speaks for itself.”
When asked if he had a backup plan if Davis is off the board by the time he picks, Jordan was equally defensive.
“Backup plans are for losers,” said Jordan, “I have six rings. You do the math.”
