Good Players Turned Bad Execs

Michael Jordan

Arguably the game's greatest player, Jordan was anything but an MVP as a front-office leader. In a little more than a year as the Wizards' president of basketball operations, Jordan took a team that had gone 29-53 in the season of his arrival and rebuilt it into a 19-63 failure. After a short-lived comeback in uniform for two seasons, Jordan eventually made his way to the Bobcats' front office 2006 and then purchased majority ownership of the team in 2010. Under his leadership, the Bobcats have made it to the postseason just once, getting swept by the Magic in the first round in 2010, and are on pace to record the worst winning percentage in league history (1.06) this season.
