Michael Jordan Has Warning About New Documentary
Michael Jordan has a warning for all his fans who are eager to see a new documentary about him this weekend.
That warning? It may change your perception of him.
According to Jordan, the documentary will make him look like a horrible person.
“When people see this footage I’m not sure they’re going to be able to understand why I was so intense, why I did the things I did, why I acted the way I acted, and why I said the things I said,” Jason Hehir says Jordan told him.
“When you see the footage of [me riding with Scotty Burrell], you’re going to think that I’m a horrible guy.
“But you have to realize that the reason why I was treating him like that is because I needed him to be tough in the playoffs and we’re facing the Indianas and Miamis and New Yorks in the Eastern Conference.
“He needed to be tough and I needed to know that I could count on him. And those are the kind of things where people see me acting the way I acted in practice, they’re not going to understand it.”
ESPN’s “The Last Dance” is set to air this coming weekend.
