The only thing Antonio Brown can say he has in common with Michael Jordan is that they both have reached the top of their respective sports and won a championship and they both have owned a team. The latter can be said very loosely given what has gone down since Brown has taken over an arena league team.
For some odd reason, the former NFL star WR is comparing himself to the greatest NBA player of all time.
It came as Michael Jordan’s NBA ownership tenure being over after the Hall of Famer agreed on a sale of the Charlotte Hornets to a group led by Hornets minority owner Gabe Plotkin and Atlanta Hawks minority owner Rick Schnall, the team announced Friday.
Jordan has been the owner of the Charlotte Hornets for the past 13 years.
Brown, on the other hand, has been the owner of the Albany Empire’s ownership group since this past March.
“Me n MJ get the same hate BLK Ownership archives,” Brown tweeted.
Jordan also will keep a minority stake in the team.
The sale will end his run as majority owner of the Hornets. He bought a controlling interest in the team from George Shinn in 2010 for $275 million after he became a part-owner in 2006.
During Jordan’s time at the helm of the franchise, he changed the name of the team back to the Hornets and became the first former NBA player to become a billionaire.
However, the team has made the postseason only twice since 2010.
Brown’s team was coming off back-to-back NAL championships before he took over and things went haywire. Now the franchise has been kicked out of the league.
