Presidents Cup Now Safe From Adding Kwame Brown as Captain's Pick
Yes, the news is true, Michael Jordan will not be at this year's Presidents Cup, due to ongoing labor disputes with the NBA.
That's the news, so I have to simply ask this; isn't it hilarious that Jordan decided not to be part of this team the ONE year the NBA ISN'T playing? Wouldn't it make more sense for him to ditch out when no teams are doing anything, and no contact with players is allowed, instead of doing so when there isn't any basketball?
PTI's Michael Wilbon said a few weeks back that he already had Christmas plans to do something that didn't involve the NBA because he was sure there wouldn't be any games during that time, and isn't this exactly the same approach for MJ? Make plans that don't include basketball when there isn't any basketball?!?!
Anyway, it's a sad day, and cigar sales in Australia are sure to take a hit, but that doesn't stop us from posting the strangest bro-hug in sports history from the 2010 Ryder Cup; Jordan and Thomas Bjorn! Who would have thunk it?!
(Also, worth noting, I was confused by his addition nearly a year ago. One year is a cute idea, every year seems overkill.)
