Whenever the Bulls play at Charlotte, there’s a chance for a Michael Jordan sighting. Usually the majority owner of the Hornets is tucked away in a skybox, watching his team struggle against a far-superior Bulls team.

Last night when the Hornets jumped out to a 17-point lead and extended it to 35 at one point, Jordan was front and center for the throttling.

Coincidence?

Bulls TV analyst and former Jordan teammate Stacey King didn’t think so.

As the cameras showed Jordan sitting in his seats with wife Yvette Prieto, King called him out for grandstanding:

“He started out in a suite, but once his team jumped out to a 17-point lead, he decided to mosey on down to the seats,” King said. “I’m calling him out. I’m calling him out. You don’t see him here very often. But he was up in the suites, and as soon as Charlotte jumped out to that 17-point lead, he kinda moon-walked down there to the seat. I caught him. Don’t try to be slick.”

The Latest
Admittedly still trying to grasp the idea of forward Patrick Williams now lost for the season, rather than seeing his players give in to the growing adversity, Bulls coach Billy Donovan watched them turn the second half in New Orleans into a brawl, and eventually a win.
Two beloved former Hawks — Kane and Alex DeBrincat — led a late comeback for Detroit en route to a 3-2 overtime decision on an emotional day at the United Center.
Coach Billy Donovan will continue using different looks and schemes to help fill the void at a very thin spot on the roster, but a lot of the responsibility will fall on Caruso.
A 35-year-old man was going northbound in the 1400 block of North Clark Street before 6 p.m. Sunday when a person in another car fired at him, police said. He was hospitalized in serious condition.
The Cubs and Bellinger agreed to terms on a three-year, $80 million contract, sources confirmed Sunday.
