Michael Jordan walks off as Charlotte Hornets almost blow a lead against LA Lakers with 16.8 seconds left


Michael Jordan’s legendary competitive fire continues to burn even as he watches from the sidelines as the owner of the Charlotte Hornets.

His team hosted the heavily-undermanned LA Lakers, who were without LeBron James and Anthony Davis due to their respective injuries, last night (28 January). The Hornets were seemingly cruising to a win before things got very interesting down the stretch.

The Buzz City team were comfortably leading by as many as 20 points before the LA Lakers mounted a huge comeback behind Russell Westbrook. Charlotte led by six points with under a minute left in the game when the Lakers rattled off five straight points. The flurry of baskets cut the lead to a single point with 16.8 seconds left in the game.

Out of sheer frustration and inability to directly affect the game, Michael Jordan almost walked out of his cozy suite. You can watch his reaction here:
