Michael Jordan Rejected Allen Iverson Signing

What Larry wants, Larry gets?

Not automatically. Sure, coach Larry Brown holds great sway in sculpting the Charlotte Bobcats’ roster. But he’s not the only voice or the most powerful one.

And he’s been told no. Case in point: Allen Iverson.

“We had a short conversation about him,’’ recalled Bobcats owner Michael Jordan of the high-talent/high-maintenance shooting guard.

Jordan said that for all of Iverson’s ability, he wasn’t the right fit on a young team still establishing an identity. Jordan expressed that to Brown, who accepted Jordan’s judgment. And they all moved on.
