Michael Jordan is most famous for being the greatest basketball player to ever live. But nowadays his identity isn’t quite that anymore. No, today he is popularly known as arguably the worst team owner in the NBA. However, things are starting to change.

First, you have the drafting of LaMelo Ball to kickstart the revolution. Arguably the best player in the 2020 NBA draft class, when healthy, he ascends to an All-Star level already.

After he was drafted, what the Hornets needed the most, was a big man he could be paired with. And fortunately for Charlotte, they recently drafted Mark Williams, someone so good, he has fans dancing even amidst LaMelo Ball’s freak injury.

As team owner, Michael Jordan was bound to join the fun at some point. And so, he decided to show up to the most recent Hornets’ game… only to be the victim of a hilariously embarrassing incident.
