From Hornets’ Instagram account: A class picture turns into an unexpected surprise as Hornets Chairman Michael Jordan visiting Hornets Nest Elementary students in their classrooms.
It’s still a huge deal when Michael Jordan walks in the room.
The Charlotte Hornets (man it is good to type that again) are doing a number of community events right now, promoting the team and the return of Buzz, the Hornet mascot. This is a team trying to build on the momentum of a successful year in a community where the relationship with the team needs to be rebuilt after a couple or previous owners shredded it. Jordan is figuring out this ownership thing more and more.
But there is still nothing like him walking into a classroom.
