COACH SMART ON JORDAN:

“He needs to work on his ability mentally to respond to mistakes, to respond to coaching, to respond to anything that doesn’t go his way. That was a challenge for him last year. At times it caused him to snowball in the wrong direction. The thing is, a lot of times things were out of his control. We define response as your ability to move to the next most important thing. He can take a significant jump if he can do that.”
