Jordan Critical Of New Players

Michael Jordan must be getting old. He's criticizing the upcoming generation of players.

"They won't let coaches tell them how to improve," Jordan said.

He also talked about those who leave college early to play in the pros.

"A player who stays in college for four years is the player who's going to be good."

Jordan left North Carolina after his junior year.

"The problem is that a lot of the young kids look at my success too much and they think they can take shortcuts to get it," Jordan said in an interview for the November issue of Maxim magazine.

He told of some North Carolina players who came to his basketball camp.

"They were the worst I ever had," Jordan said. "They wanted my car to go downtown and go shopping. They didn't want to do any work. They thought that since I was a North Carolina guy, I'd give them a free ride."
