CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Hornets players say team owner Michael Jordan recently spoke to them about what it takes to be a champion.

He emphasized the need for accountability — even if it means making teammates comfortable. Those are some of the same qualities that were on display  during the 10-part documentary the “Last Dance,” which focused on Jordan’s sixth and final NBA championship run with the Chicago Bulls.

Hornets point guard Devonte Graham said Jordan told players they can’t be uncomfortable “calling out teammates” in practice when things aren’t going as planned or when mistakes become repetitive.
