    I think Chicagoans or bulls fans would have cared if Horace or Steve Kerr made a documentary if it was well made an factual

  • FaithfulBM

    Listen, I like MJ -- But the truth of the matter is that he was probably hard on Horace and Horace resented it. MJ has his truth. Horace has his own truth. As far as who's the snitch, I don't care. The only question it true. Anything you say or do can come back on you, especially when people feel you treated them wrong.

    So MJ what you really know about the cocaine circus and all that? Well as far as I know that's just a rumor. I mean I heard about it but I was a rookie you know, I was focus on stepping up my game so I didn't go out to party with the team. THE END

    Makes sense .....grant admittedly was unhappy with the bulls knew he wasn't going be there long term and also has said him and Sam Smith were very close friends back then I think he talked to Smith I also think a few other players talked too.


    Horace Grant has definitely lost cool points with me. Dude just STFU! You were not an All Star. Except that. Sure you were instrumental in the Bulls first 3Peat, but because of your animosity towards Pippen and Jordan, and your inability to accept a more humble position, Phil Jackson proved that your were replaceable by acquiring Dennis Rodman. Da f*** wrong with these nicKas? If I were a player on that team, I would have NEVER been traded because I would have done exactly what Phil Jackson and/or Jordan would had asked... STFU AND DO MY MUHF**KN JOB!

    lol yall didn't really think ESPN or anyone associated was gonna go AGAINST Jordan...….did you?! and esp not Simp A. Smith.

    speak for yourself SAS. I would have watched even if Jordan wasn't involved. Jordan enhanced it no doubt. but that's the 90s BULLS......all of them were interesting. Even Dickey Simkins and Jack Haley. I lived that era, in ground zero (the Midwest, in Illinois). so yea......I woulda watched.

    Stephen A. Smith is a Jordan asslicker. Yellowed eyes Jordan is old news. Geordie Howe played in his fifties in the NHL. If Jrdan is so great now let's see him play now in the current NBA. .

    MJ used Horace as a scapegoat, the star can't take a charge that's the job for the " lesser star" around them....

  • ace jojo

    First off they asked Jordan the question about the bulls coco circus 🎪 and Horace swears it wasn’t him who snitched when the Jordan rules came out... even though he says that the writer is his friend and the writer thanked him in the book. So child please. Next even the other bulls players said it was Horace and that he was jealous of MJ and angry that Jerry didn’t want to pay 💰 him so he left. Pippen is mad after he already saw the last dance but he thought everyone was going to see it the way. Wrong Smh 🤦🏽‍♂️

  • SuperZap12345

    Horace is 100% correct. Jordan was a selfish player/person. As far as speaking with Sam Smith, all the Bulls players spoke with him. Sam was a beat writer for the Bulls for years. And the stuff about there being special rules for Jordan is accurate. Horace was a great player and rightfully felt that Jordan was taking all the credit for the success of the Bulls.

  • Emeded Ambriz

    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.

  • Bob Franklin

    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!!!

    Jordan didn't name names, and that was thirty years later. Horace flat out snitched during their active years, a qualitative difference.

    Jordan was the strongest member of the BULLS team. Pippen quit. Grant left. Armstrong was a role player. Rodman is the only interesting player. Of course it’s going to be about the greatest member of your team!?!?!? Duh!
