Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan met with members of the team Saturday to offer his input on the rocky early season, according to a report from the Charlotte Observer.
From the sounds of things, Jordan gave the Hornets a pep talk — but it hardly resembled Gregg Popovich-like proclamations booming from the gym.
“It wasn’t a talking-to,” forward Marvin Williams told the Observer. “He gave his input on what he’s seen, what he would like to see going forward.
“It was very constructive, very appreciative and very much needed.”
The Hornets, expected by many to be a playoff team this season, entered Monday at 9-16 overall and a miserable 1-10 on the road.
According to the Observer: “Jordan left Spectrum Center with a large group of friends right after Saturday’s (home loss to the Los Angeles Lakers), looking understandably glum. It’s been a rough first quarter of the season: Plenty of injuries to rotation players and coach Steve Clifford missed his third consecutive game with a yet-undisclosed health issue.”
