Horace Grant fired back at Michael Jordan during a recent interview. The former Chicago Bulls forward took exception to how Jordan spoke of him during The Last Dance.
“If MJ had a grudge with me, let’s settle this like men,” Grant said.
“Let’s talk about it. Or we can settle it another way. But yet and still, he goes out and puts this lie out that I was the source behind [the book]. Sam and I have always been great friends. We’re still great friends.
“But the sanctity of that locker room, I would never put anything personal out there. The mere fact that Sam Smith was an investigative reporter. That he had to have two sources, two, to write a book, I guess. Why would MJ just point me out?
“It’s only a grudge, man. I’m telling you, it was only a grudge. And I think he proved that during this so-called documentary. When if you say something about him, he’s going to cut you off, he’s going to try to destroy your character.”
Jordan has suggested that Grant served as a source for Sam Smith’s book, The Jordan Rules, which at times painted the Bulls’ biggest star in an unfavorable light.
It will be interesting to see if Jordan chooses to respond to Grant’s comments.
