(Bobcats Coach Steve) Clifford communicates a lot with team owner Michael Jordan via text message. Clifford said he benefits from the feedback.

“He’ll text me sometimes just with things that he sees. He knows our team,” Clifford said before the game.

“I appreciate how he treats me – he gives me suggestions, but he always says, ‘You’re the coach; do what you think.’ ”

That’s very similar to how Jordan interacted with Clifford’s predecessor, Mike Dunlap. Jordan and the front office would offer feedback, but Dunlap was never dictated to, in terms of his player rotation.
