At right is former North Carolina player Buzz Peterson, assistant general manager of the Hornets, and at left is former North Carolina player Mitch Kupchak, general manager of the Hornets. Peterson knew Jordan as well as anyone when they were in college. Roommates and teammates at North Carolina, they spent countless days competing on the basketball court in practice and endless hours talking hoops. But Peterson never saw this coming: His roommate becoming an NBA owner and hosting the league’s All-Star game in his home state of North Carolina.
