John Thompson to interview Michael Jordan on NBA TV


The fascination in this interview will be to see how deferential ex-coach John Thompson is to new Charlotte Bobcat owner Michael Jordan in this "exclusive" sit-down that NBA TV is showing Sunday at 9 a.m. While it is nice to get an interview with Jordan, one might have hoped the network devoted to NBA basketball could have chosen a journalist rather than an ex-coach to do the questioning.

Jordan's Bobcats play the defending Eastern Conference champion Orlando Magic in a first-round NBA playoff series beginning Sunday at 2:30 PDT on TNT.
