Michael Jordan may be the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, but that doesn’t mean he’s above lacing up the sneakers and working out with his team once in a while.
On Tuesday, the NBA legend decided to mix it up with his team during practice. The Charlotte Observer says MJ went one-on-one with Gerald Henderson and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
“It’s pretty cool,” said Henderson. “He has a unique viewpoint. He’s always got something helpful to say, and it’s great to have him out here.
“He’s attentive. He watches every game, he watches every practice,” said Henderson. “He always feels like he can help you.”
A few Bobcats players raved about the 49-year-old’s ability.
“He’s still got it. He can still shoot,” Henderson said. “I don’t know about his defense, but he can still score.”
Bismack Biyombo thinks Jordan could still play if he wanted to.
“He can still play the game. Honestly, the way I see him, I think he can still play if he wants to,” said Biyombo.

Jamie Patrice Thomas, who is the wife of Charlotte Bobcats forward Tyrus Thomas, was arrested outside of a Charlotte bar around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday morning at the NC Music Factory outside of the Label night club. The club was housing a Chris Paul hosted party, and the party got a little out of hand toward the latter portion of the evening thanks to Jamie and some other ladies.
On Wednesday, Dime Magazine release a video of Michael Jordan playing hoops in a Charlotte Bobcats’ practice. Air-Jordan, now a tender 49 years young, looked terrific as he was working with Gerald Henderson and company of footwork and defense. Any chance to catch a glimpse of MJ in action is worth posting on this network.

For those of you who miss seeing Michael Jordan take to the court, dominate the competition, and take to the air for dunks, well brace yourself for the following video.
OK so maybe MJ isn't getting insane air like he used to but Jordan took to the court in a recent Bobcats practice which I am sure was a treat for the players and a bit intimidating considering he is MJ and owner...
Chris Paul balled out with 19 points in Charlotte last night against the Bobcats, then balled out at the Label night club afterward. Multiple people, including the wife of Charlotte Bobcats player Tyrus Thomas were arrested during a fight outside an uptown bar early Thursday morning around 2:30 a.m. No NBA stars were reportedly arrested so we are guessing this was a cat fight...
The Bobcats gave the Clippers a solid fight in a 100-94 loss on Wednesday night, but enter their third meeting with the Atlanta Hawks on an embarrassing nine game slide.

“There are no limitations on this team,” Warriors coach Mark Jackson said, perhaps overstating his team’s abilities just a smidge. “They’re all committed and everybody hangs on to the rope.” The Bobcats, meanwhile, are hanging from a rope, having lost 8 in a row, most of them at home, most of them more convincingly than [...]
No, Michael Jordan is not considering another comeback. Let’s just get that out of the way right now.
However, basketball’s former shining star and current Charlotte Bobcats chairman took to the court recently to help his team glean some wisdom from a former six-time NBA champion. For the lowly Bobcats and guard Gerald Henderson, it’s a chance to learn from one of the greatest...
