Michael Jordan RumorsAll NBA Players
Adam Silver was asked about Jordan’s comments on ESPN’s “Mike and Mike” on Monday. Silver, well aware of the competitiveness that exists within Jordan, said it made him chuckle. After all, this might be the most competitive basketball player ever saying this in a year where his team isn’t being picked to win the championship. “I chuckled a little bit because this notion that maybe the most competitive athlete in the history all of sports is frustrated a little bit that his team isn’t predicted to win the championship this year. So I take it with a bit of a grain of salt. And also here’s a guy who in his last six full seasons as a Chicago Bull won the championship. So at the time, of course, everyone defined that Bulls team as a super team.”
Jordan speaking about Tiger Woods, via Cigar Aficionado: I don’t know if I could’ve survived in this Twitter time, where you don’t have the privacy that you would want and what seems to be very innocent can always be misinterpreted.
During an interview with Cigar Aficionado magazine, he expressed his disappointment. “I think it’s going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint. You’re going to have one or two teams that are going to be great, and another 28 teams that are going to be garbage. Or they’re going to have a tough time surviving in the business environment.”, he said.
NBA Hall of Famer and Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan isn’t a fan of the NBA’s so-callled “Super Team” era. “I think it’s going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint,” Jordan said in an interview with Cigar Aficianado magazine. “You’re going to have one or two teams that are going to be great, and another 28 teams that are going to be garbage. Or they’re going to have a tough time surviving in the business environment.”
Hornets owner Michael Jordan is donating $7 million to launch two medical clinics in troubled Charlotte communities, in one of the largest gifts ever from the basketball legend with deep ties to North Carolina. Novant Health is expected on Monday to announce Jordan’s personal gift, which will fund Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics to be built in north and northwest Charlotte. One will be at 3149 and 3153 Freedom Drive; the other will be in the Brightwalk development on Statesville Avenue.
The Hornets declined comment on Nelly’s arrest Saturday. Nelly, 42, was part of the original ownership group formed by founder Bob Johnson in 2004, when this expansion team was called the Charlotte Bobcats. In the spring of 2010, Johnson sold controlling interest to Michael Jordan.
Peter Vecsey: “Harrison’s the kind of guy who will remember that forever,” said someone who knows him extremely well. “He still holds a grudge against the teams that didn’t draft him.” Especially the Charlotte Hornets! Michael Jordan’s team opted for Kentucky’s Michael Kidd-Gilchrist at No. 2 over Barnes, who played in state at the University of North Carolina.
