NBA agent David Falk admitted in an radio interview with WJFK in DC that Michael Jordan, then with the Wizards, didn't make the decision to draft Kwame Brown with the top overall pick in 2001.

"That was not his decision," Falk said. "That was someone else's decision. Kwame Brown was the first high school player ever drafted (#1 overall) and certain people in the organization thought that would have tremendous promotional value on ticket sales."

Falk continued on the subject, saying that Jordan wanted to bring Elton Brand to Washington instead.

"Michael wanted Elton Brand. They wanted to make a trade, he wanted to bring in Elton Brand."

Interesting.

Whatever the case... Kwame Brown has been one of the most influential trade commodities in NBA history.

He landed Caron Butler in Washington.

He landed Pau Gasol in Los Angeles.

MJ, imo, would be better as a coach

They're both losers.. Losers with no winning mentality, and no pride whatsoever. Both can't carry a team anywhere (without the help of Sam Cassell)
I'm a DIE HARD Clippers fan, and proud. I respect the Lakers and watch them every chance I get.

Respect me and I'll respect you. Don't respect me... we'll cross that bridge when we get there :)

Not only that, he liked putting everyone under the bus... Shaq badmouthing his former team mates, and Kobe's trade demand were NOTHING compared to what MJ was doing, but of course no one remembers that now...
