Michael Jordan trying to add "superstar" to Hornets


There is a lot of hype surrounding the Charlotte basketball franchise as people are excited about the return of the Charlotte Hornets. Not only should fans be excited for the name change, but Charlotte has a good, young team to go with it as well. The team was able to make the playoffs last year, and are looking to build off that success next year.

Owner Michael Jordan has big plans for the team, as it has been reported that Jordan is planning to add a “superstar” to the team, to form a Big 3 with Al Jefferson and Kemba Walker.

“I always thought it was a great destination. I think Big Al (Jefferson) proved you can come here and make a big difference.” Michael Jordan also added “Hopefully we can look at that and attract some other superstar.”

“I think we can make a big difference. We did last year with Big Al and some of the other acquisitions,” Jordan said. “I don’t anticipate this being any different. I think we’ll try to improve on what we did last year, which I’m very proud of.”

“The guys came out and took the initiative from coach. He was able to bond and get a really good effort. This off-season we have a lot of flexibility. I’ve been speaking about that the last three to four years how that flexibility is very important. We’ll utilize every resource to improve the team. I don’t think that will change this summer.”

Could that potential “superstar” be Carmelo Anthony? Or what is Michael Jordan’s definition of a superstar? Lance Stephenson is another possibility, but I don’t think he is superstar material. The only thing we know for sure is that Michael Jordan is doing everything possible to improve the team.
