Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan is sick of watching his top executives be bashed as “yes’’ men.
Jordan, in an exclusive interview with The Charlotte Observer, responded to criticism from former Bobcats coach Larry Brown, who said Wednesday on Dan Patrick’s nationally syndicated radio show that Jordan’s top advisors “don’t have a clue’’ and made Brown “sick.’’
Previously, television commentators Charles Barkley and Jeff Van Gundy criticized Jordan and the Bobcats, who are an NBA-worst 7-57 headed into Wednesday’s game at Orlando. If the Bobcats don’t win one of their remaining two games, they’ll finish with the worst winning percentage in league history.
“It’s absolutely wrong that I don’t want guys to challenge me. And the people who say that aren’t in the room,’’ Jordan told the Observer.
