Michael Jordan Slaps NBA Rookie Upside the Head for Early Celebration

Michael Jordan Slaps NBA Rookie Upside the Head for Early Celebration

Hornets guard Malik Monk almost cost his team a win by celebrating prematurely late in Wednesday's game against the Pistons, and the team's owner let him know about it.

But as Lamb celebrated his first-ever National Basketball Association buzzer-beater, the officials huddled at the courtside monitor, where they determined that Monk and fellow substitute Bismack Biyombo had run several yards onto the floor on the opposite end of the court in anticipation of Lamb's shot going in.

Hornets owner Michael Jordan was none too pleased about it, and he was seen having some words with Monk afterward, apparently reminding his player to refrain from celebrating until the game was over. Jordan and Monk even shared a smile before going their separate ways, after which M.J. quickly went back to shaking his head.

Luckily for Monk, Charlotte stole the inbounds pass and escaped with a single-point win after Detroit hit a free throw. "No negative intent. Only love", Jordan told the Associated Press.

It's one thing for a Hornets player to upset head coach James Borrego.

The Pistons were given one foul shot, which they made.

With last night's victory, the Hornets climbed back over.500 for the season with a 14-13 mark.

"I did not realize we still had time on the clock", Biyombo said. He said, "I pay for this seat, so you guys need to sit down so I can watch the game"'. Monk is fourth on the team in scoring, averaging 10.3 points per game. "We just have to take away that basket and not allow him to get a good shot like that". But you've got to react the right way.
