Larry Brown -- the former Charlotte Bobcats head coach -- knows why the Bobcats aren't performing well this NBA season, as he's claiming it has something to do with the people surrounding Michael Jordan in the front office.

Brown -- who did an interview with NBA.TV -- says that Jordan could use some more "no" men in his life, when it comes to running the Charlotte Bobcats, who are currently 7-47 -- the worst record in the NBA.

"The biggest problem -- and he might get mad at me -- he needs more people to challenge him and I don't think he has enough of that", Brown said during the interview. Brown also added, "He needs more people around him who he has respect for who are not afraid to tell him what's right. That's the one thing I'm disappointed".

Brown, who last coaching job was in 2010 when he led the team to an 9-19 start, before being fired, went on to say, "he tries to help a lot of people, put a lot of his friends in positions where he can kind of help them, but at the end the day if they have his best interest they'll be challenging him because he does want the best. We made the playoffs, but he wasn't satisfied with that".
