08:08 AM ET 11.02 | In advance of the Bobcats' opener before a season many expect to be difficult, their owner offered the optics of his own motivation. A 7-59 record drove Michael Jordan out of his courtside seats, but he says last season won't drive him away from owning the Charlotte Bobcats long-term. "I'm in it for the long haul," Jordan told the Observer Thursday morning. ... "You're not going to run me out that easily. Losing is not something I take well, but it's not something I run from, either. It's my nature that when someone says I can't do something, I focus on trying to do it. So when people say we can't win here, it drives me nuts and gets me motivated to do everything I can to bring a winner here."

Hey Mike, no owner/coach is any better than his roster. Your roster sucks!
