Michael Jordan was a great basketball player. He was just not a nice guy to a lot of people. Sam Smith, the longtime Bulls reporter who wrote the illuminating MJ bookThe Jordan Rules, appeared on Tolbert,Krueger and brooks podcast and told a story in which Jordan is way more cruel than we’ve seen in the documentary.
Jordan, Smith says, wouldn’t let Horace Grant eat on the team plane if Grant had a lousy game.
The reason you won’t hear many stories of Jordan’s cruelty in The Last Dance is that Jordan has creative control over the doc. This might make Jordan one of the biggest jerks....but on the court in my opinion..he was the very best.
