Transcript from a question-and-answer session with Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan on Thursday, Nov. 1, 2012
Q: Are you committed to being this team’s owner for the long haul?
A: “I’m in it for the long haul. I was frustrated. For a guy who played the game of basketball, I could only do so much sitting in that (owner’s) seat. I think some of you guys (asked) why I wasn’t sitting in my normal seats. It was too close and I couldn’t control my emotions. I moved myself back up, so that I could scream and yell without you guys hearing me.
“You’re not going to run me out that easily. Losing is not something I take well, but it’s not something I run from, either. It’s my nature that when someone says I can’t do something, I focus on trying to do it. So when people say we can’t win here, it drives me nuts and gets me motivated to do everything I can to bring a winner here.’’
