Larry Brown: I Came Here because of Michael Jordan

Larry Brown has never been more emphatic, explaining why he took the Charlotte Bobcats coaching job.

“I came here because of Michael (Jordan) – no other reason,” Brown said pregame Tuesday. “And I’m not disappointed by what’s happened thus far in my relationship with him. I know we’ll get this thing done.”

Brown reiterated that had Jordan not been running the basketball operation, Brown would be coaching college ball on the West Coast (i.e. Stanford).
