It’s been a while since Bobcats Chairman/Owner Mike Jordan joined his team’s practice, and this most recent one was indeed a treat.
While the ‘Cats are sporting a somewhat positively surprising 7 -13 record (they won 7 games total last year), getting $ to work out with you definitely can’t hurt. It seems the players appreciated the opportunity to get MJ’s feedback and thoughts on their games:
“I had a chance to talk to him about my game, and obviously he sees a lot more than I see and we see on the floor. He also knows the game better than we do, so he’s always giving advice. I think it’s very good for us.”
“He’s the best ever to play and has that competitive nature. I think he always feels like he can help you, so it’s good. We played a little one-on-one and did some shooting drills, so that’s always a lot of fun. He wants to win, so it gets competitive.”

I miss MJ. It’s sad that my son will grow-up without him. I am GLAD that Kobe will be done by the time my son starts to take an interest in the game. (Needs to learn how to talk, hand-eye coordination, that type of stuff first). BAM
