Within hours of Larry Brown's comments blasting the Bobcats' staff, Michael Jordan responded to the bashing in an interview with the Charlotte Observer.

"It's absolutely wrong that I don't want guys to challenge me. And the people who say that aren't in the room," Jordan began in response to Brown's accusations of his team being a "yes" organization.

Brown continued to tell the "Dan Patrick Show" that the people around Jordan "make him sick" and are "clueless." Jordan has denied those accusations and says he's very happy and confident with his staff.

Jordan added that he never expected the Bobcats to hold the incredibly low-scoring record of 7-57, but he feels the organization has made positive steps that will hopefully be better responded to in the future.

He has no thoughts of abandoning the team.

In terms of Larry Brown himself, Jordan says he isn't shocked by his accusations since he was let go in December of 2010. However, Jordan continues to deny Brown's comments about managements issues within the organization.

"Brown had a lot of input on whatever we did. I never sidestepped him in making a decision. I gave my advice as a former player. I thought we developed a trust where everyone could share his opinion. I gave my input, but I wasn't the only one whose opinion counted."
