Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan wants to see his players follow the legend's lead and hold teammates more accountable.
Jordan held a Zoom meeting following the conclusion of ESPN's "The Last Dance" documentary series, and he encouraged Hornets players to call each other out, according to Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer.
"How you have to be comfortable calling your teammates out," point guard Devonte Graham recalled Jordan saying. "That's going to make you guys even better. You'll bond better. Your team is stronger.
"There is more of a respect level, instead of not saying anything and letting guys mess up over and over and over again and you're losing and losing."
Jordan defended his aggressiveness toward teammates in the seventh episode of "The Last Dance," explaining that it came down to him wanting to win.
The Hornets will not be among the teams included in the NBA's restart, and they finished the 2019-20 season with a 23-42 record.
