  • After Horace Grant left for Orlando the Bulls needed to sign Dennis Rodman to fill the empty void. Dennis Rodman and Horace Grant did all the dirty work and were never given any credit for their contributions. Michael Jordan hardly ever covered the other teams star player that was mostly Pippen and Ron Harper’s job. Rodman shut out Shaq and Karl Malone while Jordan had it easy. Look at what happen to Jordan in Washington a lot of points but no playoffs or championships. Same thing like in the 80’s a lot of points but no championships. Jordan needed help.

  • This is just my opinion but it sounds like some hating going on here. Horace Grant, Craig Hodges and whoever else with issues, this is for you. 1. I never saw any of you take a winning shot. 2. Each of you have rings because of 23. 3. Neither of you haters will ever be as good as 23, even in your dreams. 4. If 23 never came to the Bulls we wouldn't be here talking about any dance, get it yet. 5. Of course there are different rules for MJ and Scottie, they were the stars, everyone else was the supporting cast. Deal with and stay in your lane.

  • WILT CHAMBERLAIN IS THE GOAT!!! Larry Bird was 23-11 vs. Michael Jordan including 6-0 in the playoffs even though Michael Jordan scored 63 points in a game against the Celtics who still won!!! I guess Larry Bird was better than Michael Jordan. No, but Larry had BETTER PLAYERS AROUND HIM, just like Russell did vs Chamberlain. IT IS A TEAM GAME, yet Chamberlain’s teams took Russell’s teams to Game 7 four times and lost by only a COMBINED 9 points !!! And Chamberlain didn’t have hardly any other talent around him. MICHAEL JORDAN STARTED WINNING ONCE LARRY BIRD’S AND MAGIC JOHNSON’S CAREERS WERE PRETTY MUCH DONE. IF MICHAEL JORDAN HAD STARTED IN THE NBA IN 1979 LIKE BIRD AND MAGIC, then MICHAEL JORDAN WOULD NOT HAVE WON 6 TITLES!!! NO WAY, NO HOW!!!

  • “So called ‘documentary’......” Horace, what do you think a documentary is or isn’t??? That The Last Dance is predominately from MJ’s point of view doesn’t make it any less of a documentary. It may not be the documentary Horace likes or wants to see but a documentary it most definitely is.

Side note I was in Atlantis for a wedding and MJ and Mark Messier showed up with loads of models and had casino closed for 2 hrs for themselves.

  • I don’t know if y’all know this but cocaine was a major problem in the league since the 80s it’s been stated in multiple documentaries and by multiple reporters saying. I get why grant is mad. It’s something I didn’t know growing up until I was an in my teens when I found out about the history of problems with the league. I guess he didn’t want that dirty laundry to be aired on national television especially with every child and family are watching this series being stuck at home in all

This documentary is just to stay relevant

  • Grant, sounds like a rejected woman. This is not the first time he's spoken on Jordan, after the bulls. If Horace is still holding on to resentment after all this time, he really need to get some help. Not everybody is going to appreciate you the same way the appreciate another.

  • MJ talked about NOT wanting to participate in the temptations of drugs & alcohol, etc.. that makes these things available to athletes in basically ALL sports. We have seen through the years how these things have destroyed the careers of so many athletes because they couldn’t control themselves to stay away from those temptations. MJ had a CHAMPION mentality. In order to be the BEST, it takes commitment, sacrifice, and strength to sever yourself from those who DON’T want to achieve greatness. Props up to MJ for being a GOAT!
