Watch: Michael Jordan Admonishes Malik Monk for Early Celebration, Slaps Guard on Head

It's one thing for a Hornets player to upset head coach James Borrego. It's another to draw the ire of owner Michael Jordan.

Second-year guard Malik Monk earned a chat with Jordan on Charlotte's bench during the final seconds of the Hornets' 108-107 victory over the Pistons on Wednesday as the pair discussed Monk's decision to jump onto the court after Jeremy Lamb hit a go-ahead jumper with 0.3 seconds remaining. Charlotte's bench was assesed a warning on the play, but still held on for the one-point victory. Monk is lucky to not have cost the Hornets a win, or he likely would have needed an extra chat with Jordan.
