Default Michael Jordan defends Bobcats execs, rebuilding plan, himself

“It’s absolutely wrong that I don’t want guys to challenge me. And the people who say that aren’t in the room,’’ Jordan told the Observer.

“The idea that people can’t do that is just wrong. Curtis (Polk, team vice chairman) has worked with me for over 20 years and he’s never had a problem telling me, ‘no.’ Rod (Higgins, president of basketball operations) has no problem telling me no. Fred (Whitfield, team president) has no problem telling me ‘no.’ And Rich (Cho, the team’s general manager) is about as direct and candid a person as you’ll ever meet.’’

Higgins and Whitfield both declined comment on the Brown interview. Brown, recently hired as coach at Southern Methodist, did not immediately return a phone call left on his cell phone.

Jordan also said Wednesday morning that while the Bobcats are in rebuilding mode, he never planned –or anticipated – a season where the team would finish last in the league, much less possibly with the worst winning percentage in NBA history.
