If Michael Jordan wants to win a championship, and we all know he does, he should hire Kyle Busch. Childress can’t support the greatest of his era. Chevy will never let Childress get better than Hendrick. Money rules. Childress lost out by putting nepotism in front of recruiting. Chevy is all in on Hendrick. Jordan has something in Reddick, but championship? Nah. Probably not there. Denny will never let Jordan hire his nemesis!
Jordan’s loss. Busch would probably jump to get back in Toyota camp and would definitely put 23×1 in conversation of trophies. Alot of trophies. Not just wishes.


Michael Jordan doesn’t care about winning. He only cares about making money. Look at his record since he bought an NBA team. Now look at his trades. He got rid of high salary players all the time. He made trades based on how cheap this guy was versus another players salary. You don’t have to believe me, look at the records, stats and news through the years.
