NBA star Lance Stephenson tells TMZ Sports ... despite his disappointing 1 year run in Charlotte, he's still on good terms with the team's owner Michael Jordan.
Stephenson had a tough go during his stint with the Hornets -- and acknowledged it in his goodbye note to the city ... saying, "the past year didn't work out as I hoped."
In fact, one media outlet described him as "Michael Jordan's worst mistake" and Hornets general manager Rich Cho said Lance was never a "good fit."
Now that Stephenson's in L.A. to join his new team -- the Clippers -- so, we had to ask how he left things with His Airness ... and it sounds positive.
Well, as positive as it can be ...
