Michael Jordan discusses his reasons for never wanting to work as an NBA coach.

Many outstanding NBA players wish to continue in some capacity with the sport they grew up playing even after they retire from competition. NBA players frequently accept positions as general manager, coaches, or in other capacities, and occasionally they even perform even better as coaches than they did as players. However, many NBA luminaries never seemed to be able to apply the information they acquired while playing in the league to the players or teams they were coaching, and as a result, they never seemed to have the same level of success as head coaches.

Michael Jordan, who is regarded as the GOAT by many NBA fans today, is without a doubt one of the most intelligent and gifted players of all time. People knew he would be involved in basketball in some capacity after he eventually left the NBA in 2003, and coaching was one of his possibilities at the time. However, he never went down that path without providing a valid justification for why coaching was never a possibility for him.

Jordan made the even more audacious decision to become the Charlotte Hornets’ team owner rather than take on the role of coach. Jordan knows that it takes time and that being a small market team has its challenges in drawing big stars, even though the team hasn’t had any notable success in a number of years. Jordan has the opportunity to control an NBA organization, which allows him to properly develop potential and pick players in order to have a good impact.
