I came back home. And I plan on staying home, Jordan said.Jordan, who grew up in Wilmington, North Carolina, talked at length how much of his family still lives in the state.And he said hes still driven to win.Me personally I could ride off into the sunset and never worry about a thing, Jordan said. But my pride brought me back to North Carolina for whatever reason.Jordan, who won six NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls, went on to say a lot of my credits from a basketball standpoint are going to be attributed to Chicago. But Im from North Carolina.Jordan also thanked his employees and his family for their input on his business decisions.I take input from all sources of this community be it from my family or be it from business leaders, be it from people walking in the streets, Jordan said. And that gives me a sense of my pride in my connection to the community. I dont take that for granted. I take it with a lot of pride and a lot of respect.The Hornets made the playoffs last year but were swept in the post-season by the Miami Heat.They are currently ninth in the Eastern Conference standings this season.We still have a long ways to go as an organization, Jordan said.
