Michael Jordan Wants NBA To Consider Safety First And Not Play Meaningless Games

Anthony Sain

One of the proposals that were presented to NBA general managers and owners included all 30 NBA teams being invited to Orlando and playing regular-season games either as a tune-up to prepare for the playoffs or to solidify playoff seeding. Former NBA Legend and current owner of the Charlotte Hornets thinks that this is the wrong course of action.

Jordan's Hornets team is currently sitting in tenth place at 23-42, and 7 games behind the Orlando Magic for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.  Was this a statement to suggest that Jordan thinks his team is too far out to make it, or was this an attempt to get his team invited to Orlando to compete for a chance to make the playoffs?  Bringing back all 30 teams for any type of regular season or exhibition games also seems to be the least likely scenario as well.
