08:09 AM ET 04.26 | The ultimate winner is close to going down in the record books as the owner of the worst team in NBA history, and his number of critics grows. The harshest comments to date came Wednesday morning from ex-Bobcats coach (and Hall of Famer) Larry Brown. Brown said on Dan Patrick's nationally syndicated radio show that Jordan's top advisers didn't challenge his opinions and "don't have a clue." Brown even suggested Jordan placed "spies" in the basketball operation to check up on him and his assistants. Jordan, in a telephone interview, defended the franchise's staff, some of whom were brought in after Brown's dismissal. ... Jordan said he didn't expect such harsh criticism from Brown, like Jordan a former North Carolina player, but it also didn't "surprise" him after Jordan let Brown go in December 2010. "I imagine he was pretty upset we chose to change directions," Jordan said of Brown.

Not many can make this claim... Isiah stands on a pedestal for this.

Speaking of moving on, they'll move on whenever you move on from your infatuation of Lebron James and his family. Lol Don't be a hypocrite and practice what you preach bro!

I think the only person MJ would defer to would be Phil.

You just don't get the concept of saying whatever you want whenever you want. I'm man enough to be a hypocrite... what do you stand for? You think Lebron touting Kids to stay in school is not hypocrisy? Just so you know he went to the NBA to make money instead of going to college. Y're just hiding from your own reality... wake up!
