Craig Ehlo Fires Back At Ron Harper Over Michael Jordan Doc
Craig Ehlo fired back at Ron Harper over comments he made during the Michael Jordan documentary ‘The Last Dance’. Specifically, he went after his former teammate’s defensive credentials.
“I never said I was a Jordan stopper like Gerald Wilkins or anything,” said Ehlo.
“But back then, Harp and me were on the court at the same time and he was our big offensive threat. So when I came in, it was a no-brainer that I would guard Jordan so Harp could rest on defense and play on offense.
“Harp had never really talked about defense or guarding people,” Ehlo added.
“He wasn’t a bad defender, I’ll give him that much, but I think those years with the Bulls where he got those championships, he was definitely third or fourth fiddle, so all of a sudden he becomes this lockdown defender, apparently.
“I don’t really remember him during our time wanting to play defense that much. He kind of shocked me with those comments, saying he wanted to guard Michael.”
It will be interesting to see what other bits of information come out as additional Jordan documentary episodes are released.
