Al Jefferson to Charlotte Bobcats Good Sign for Michael Jordan, Cody Zeller
I still don’t believe it. Michael Jordan actually did something right as an NBA executive. A week after greatly disappointing Charlotte Bobcats fans everywhere in the 2013 NBA Draft, Jordan signed free agent big man Al Jefferson, which gives the Charlotte faithful hope their team might soon become something more than a cellar dweller.
Jefferson is one of the most underrated players in the NBA — a big man who is fundamentally sound on both ends of the floor, one who can score and play good defense. The best part? He could make the Cody Zeller pick a good one.
I know, Zeller’s name is now considered profanity in Charlotte and I was shocked when Jordan picked Zeller with Nerlsens Noel and Ben McLemore both on the board and that wasn’t the smartest pick, but at least now Zeller has a veteran mentor, so he has a chance to be a great complementary big man in Charlotte.
Don’t be depressed, Bobcats fans. It took Jordan a while to figure things out as a player and he turned out to be the greatest ever, so be patient with him as an executive. The Jefferson signing was a monumental step in this team’s future, so keep your eyes on that silver lining.
