Kwame Brown, Michael Jordan officially reunited
It's not on a par with, say Tiger and Elin deciding to scrap their divorce and give marriage another whirl, but one famous star-crossed couple is together again.
Kwame Brown and Michael Jordan.
Even Brown's agent, Mark Bartlestein, admits it might seem like "War of the Roses 2" meets "Armageddon."
"Most people would think (Brown) would run away from going back to play for Michael again. That's not the case. Kwame welcomes it," Bartlestein told the Charlotte Observer.
In 2001, Jordan, the Wizards' president of basketball operations at the time, plucked Brown, a Georgia high-schooler, with the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft. Brown, 28, lasted in D.C. until 2005 and signed a one-year, $1.3 million deal with the Bobcats.
"The challenge of going to Charlotte and playing for Michael again and getting to play for Larry Brown, a great teacher, will be good for him," Bartlestein said. "They spent a lot of time recruiting him."
Brown has averqaged 6.7 points and 5.4 rebounds with four teams, most recently the Detroit Pistons, over nine seasons. The Boston Celtics reportedly considered signing Brown, then landed Shaquille O'Neal.
