The Most Controversial Owners in Sports History

Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan is the best basketball player to ever exist. With that said, he’s also proven to be a horrid owner. He first assumed the role as a basketball executive with the Washington Wizards. With this newfound title, he drafted Kwame Brown No. 1 overall in 2001. When he took his “talents” to the Charlotte Bobcats, he selected Adam Morrison at No. 3 over the likes of Brandon Roy and Rudy Gay, and took Michael Kidd-Gilchrist over Damian Lillard, Andre Drummond, and Bradley Beal. Beyond these head-scratching decisions, the Charlotte (Bobcats/Hornets) franchise has yet to win a playoff series since he’s arrived.
