Kwame Brown says he and Jordan are good

But then explain how Jordan signed off on inking Brown to a one-year deal with the Charlotte Bobcats? You can’t. Brown told the Charlotte Observer that the perception of their relationship is wrong.

“A lot of people speculate about my relationship with Michael,” says Brown, who speaks softly and is courteous. “But obviously I’m here, so it can’t be as bad as everybody says.”

“Don’t always believe what you read,” Brown says.

“I definitely wouldn’t have signed on if it was as horrible as you think it was,” Brown says.

Brown has some skills the Bobcats can use — he is a good defensive rebounder and a good one-on-one post defender when he can use his body on another big man. And with Dwight Howard and Shaquille O’Neal in the east, he’ll get his chance.

And anything that happened in the past between Jordan and Brown is in the past. They have moved on.

    Kwame Brown is just sleepwalking through his career. Goes to show you that if you are 6’11″ and can actually run… you can sign an NBA contract. You don’t have to shoot, dribble, play defense. Just be tall and goofy.
