Michael Jordan is now the owner. How much impact will that have?
The pessimist (cynic?) would say that Brown is merely trying to gild his legacy with an end-career "turnaround", bringing a team from the throes of expansion to the playoffs and leaving them on supposedly solid footing -- only to have everyone realize after it's too late to do anything about it that he'd mortgaged the next three years on two years of middling success. As always, it's probably more complicated than that.
