Michael Jordan Reportedly Wasn't Happy With His Former Bulls Teammates' Reactions To The Last Dance: "I Don't Think He Was Particularly Thrilled With Some Of The Blowback... It Flummoxed Him."

Michael Jordan Reportedly Wasn't Happy With His Former Bulls Teammates' Reactions To The Last Dance: "I Don't Think He Was Particularly Thrilled With Some Of The Blowback... It Flummoxed Him."

Michael Jordan is the GOAT, most agree on this, and a lot of people who were beginning to doubt it were convinced again after watching The Last Dance documentary that aired in 2020. The struggles he faced throughout his career were portrayed in the show, as well as the way that he along with his teammates and coach overcame them to become arguably the greatest dynasty in NBA history. 

However, his teammates weren't best pleased with the whole thing. His co-star in Scottie Pippen has gone on record talking about his issues with the way he was portrayed in the documentary. Horace Grant, who is implied to have been the source for the book 'The Jordan Rules' which was an issue for the team, has also spoken about how he wasn't and that it was a lie that MJ had put out

And while Jordan has kept a tight lid on his feelings about the things his former teammates have said, Jackie MacMullan, who interviewed him, recently revealed on The Hoop Collective podcast that MJ seemed surprised by the reactions he received. 

"I don't think he was particularly thrilled with the blowback from The Last Dance and some of the things that came back at him. I think some of it flummoxed him a little bit to be honest."

Michael Jordan is no longer on very good terms with a lot of his peers from the 90s, and Charles Oakley explained recently that his relationships with the people he was once friends with are unlikely to be repaired anytime soon

It's a shame that it has come to this considering just how amazing those Chicago Bulls teams were and what they meant to fans of the NBA. Just goes to show that no matter how wonderful something may look from the outside, there's no way to tell how people in these positions feel about the situation as well as about one another.
