Michael Jordan held meeting with Hornets players to address woes
The GOAT wants to kick the monkey off the Charlotte Hornets’ back. That’s Hornets team owner and basketball legend Michael Jordan, who gathered his players in a meeting just before the squad took on the Los Angeles Lakers at home last Saturday in hopes of detecting any issues that could be slowing the team down, per Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.
Owner Michael Jordan met with the players before Saturday’s game with the Los Angeles Lakers, looking for answers to what’s ailing this roster.
Jordan is growing concerned about the status of his team. The Hornets are just 4-13 in their last 17 games, and are currently riding a three-game skid. Jordan, however, didn’t give the players a tongue-lashing or acted anything close to being vitriolic when he spoke to his team.
By the description of veteran forward Marvin Williams, Michael Jordan didn’t berate. It was more of a fact-finding mission: With the coaches out of the room, he asked for concerns.
Despite Jordan’s pep-talk, the Hornets still lost to the Lakers, 110-99. The team is now 9-16 through their first 25 games. There’s still a ton of basketball left to play for the Hornets, but they need to find a cure to their woes as soon as possible, as the competition in the Eastern Conference has seemingly grown tighter than it was in recent years.
