On Friday night, the Charlotte Hornets defeated the New York Knicks 104-96 at the Spectrum Center, their home court. While everything appeared to be going Charlotte’s way down the stretch, Michael Jordan was enraged from his perch in a suite high above the floor due to a decision made by Kelly Oubre.
With just under 40 seconds remaining and the Hornets leading by seven points, Oubre chose to ascend and attempt a three-pointer that he missed. The catch: He did it seven seconds into the shot clock, so it’s not like he was praying for something he couldn’t get later in the time.
Although it was a wide open corner three in Oubre’s defense, it wasn’t his greatest decision. Fortunately for him, the Hornets did not suffer as a result — New York did not score again that night — but a camera panned up and showed Jordan shouting at Oubre for making a bad decision.
Oubre had a decent night off the bench, scoring 12 points in 27 minutes and shooting 4-for-10 from three-point range. However, the most important point here is that every broadcast of Hornets games should feature the option to watch a stream of Michael Jordan reacting to events that occur throughout the game.
