Also, the Hornets are still without a Head Coach as the 2023 draft nears. So in such a time of pressure and work, MJ was not one to entertain the fans.

Michael Jordan doesn’t like these meets

Two ecstatic fans were waiting around in hopes of seeing Hornets’ young All-Star LaMelo Ball. But they had no idea what was about to hit them. In a scream of excitement, the fans couldn’t believe their eyes. His Airness himself came into the parking lot and they requested him for a picture. But to their unfortunate luck, Jordan did not want to be in front of the camera.

While the Hornets supporters didn’t get the ideal reaction from Jordan, they must have high hopes from the one they wanted to meet. Their 20-year-old point guard, LaMelo has made a huge noise in the league. After winning ROTY, he stepped up his game big time. And Ball remains to be Charlotte’s one hope. His flashy passing vision and scoring ability allow him to manipulate the game to his will. With time to further enhance his gifts, Ball is set for a bright future. Putting up 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 7 assists, LaMelo will have to step up big next season if Jordan wants to compete.
