07:13 AM ET 03.19 | Michael Jordan's new rules include seeing a lot more of him around the gym and office. He said he is open to changing the team's nickname. He said he now owns 80 percent of the team and is going to do things his way. He said he will have a home in Charlotte -- although he still won't live here full-time -- and that he plans to partner closely with city leaders to increase the franchise's buzz factor, community-service efforts and bottom line. Over and over, Jordan stressed that you would see and hear from him more. He sounded ready to dive in rather than dabble. He called the chance to become the first former NBA player to own a team -- especially the only one located in his home state -- a "dream come true." He said he would embrace a new role as the face of the franchise.
