I am surprised by the number of people who think that spending 110 million while missing the playoffs is acceptable. I stated that if the Hornets fail Cho would get fired. That lead to:
1. A dude mocking me with a picture of a kid.
2. A dude personally attacking the reporter who wrote the obvious (you can't p!ss away money and expect the boss to keep you on the job)
3. WORST off all: A defense of the Hornet's failure last year as acceptable or commendable or the best that they could do.
I've been watching MJ since his days as a freshman on campus and I can tell you this - he does not accept mediocrity.
In fact, I am guessing that the conversation between the boss and front office staff went like this: "You used MY MONEY to create one of the highest payrolls in the league and you MISSED the god d@mn playoffs?!?!? - You need to fix this sh!t"
Personally I think that Cho is brilliant but if the Hornets fail again I am sure that he will be out of a job. That would suck because I think the REAL issue is the coach's 1990s style of play.
But I understand that keeping Cho around after last year's performance was nothing short of charity.
