National Basketball Association icon Jordan slaps Charlotte Hornets star Monk after early celebration

Michael Jordan Smacked Malik Monk Upside The Head After His Technical For Running On Court (VIDEO)

One of those players was Monk, a second-year guard, who then retreated to the bench only to be scolded by Jordan, the legendary former Chicago Bulls star who now owns the Hornets.

But as Lamb celebrated his first-ever National Basketball Association buzzer-beater, the officials huddled at the courtside monitor, where they determined that Monk and fellow substitute Bismack Biyombo had run several yards onto the floor on the opposite end of the court in anticipation of Lamb's shot going in.

The Pistons were awarded one technical foul shot as a result, which brought them to within one, but the desperation heave with.3 seconds remaining came up short as the Hornets held on by the final of 108-107.

Understandably, Jordan was none too pleased with Monk and let him know about it by smacking him upside the head with a pair of dope slaps.

It was all in good fun, but if the miscue cost Charlotte the game, Jordan may have been less forgiving. "I was watching the replay and you could see I was all the way out there (and) Malik was on the court".

Deep into the fourth quarter against the Pistons Jeremy Hunt put the Hornets up 108-106 with just 0.3 seconds left on the clock.

It's one thing for a Hornets player to upset head coach James Borrego.

"I thought they were going to call like three techs, get three free throws - something like that", Lamb said, per ESPN.

He finished with 31 points and had nine assists and eight rebounds for the Hornets, who won their third straight and moved into sixth place in the Eastern Conference - a half-game ahead of Detroit.
