Larry Brown Sports:
Larry Brown continued his criticism of Michael Jordan’s Bobcats this week, and Jordan has responded.
Brown was announced as SMU’s new basketball coach last week, and he also gave a lengthy interview to NBA.com. In that interview, Brown, who was fired by Michael Jordan as coach of the Bobcats in December 2010, was critical of Charlotte’s front office.
“The biggest problem — and [Michael Jordan] might get mad at me — he needs more people to challenge him and I don’t think he has enough of that,” Brown told NBA.com. “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 in. 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 of the day if they have his best interests they’ll be challenging him because he does want to be the best. We made the playoffs, but he wasn’t satisfied with that.”
