Craig Hodges: “One of the things as players we call this a fraternity. So I’m watching the first episode and I was upset about the ‘cocaine circus.’ That bothered me because I was thinking about the brothers who are on that picture with you who have to explain to their families who are getting ready to watch this great Michael Jordan documentary event and they know you’re on the team, and now you’ve got to explain that to a 12-year-old boy… Then the Scottie Pippen part. Scottie was ‘selfish’. C’mon man, c’mon. And then last night with Horace, that hurt me. I’m letting MJ know that that ain’t right, dude. Horace did not deserve to take the fall for ‘Jordan Rules’. If MJ knows something else and knows Horace’s motive, then tell us how Horace did it for my sake, because I’m your teammate brother, just like they are, and I’m kind of salty how everybody got interviewed but me.” (Full Audio Above)
Listen to former Chicago Bulls shooting guard Craig Hodges join The Odd Couple to explain his discontent with ESPN’s ‘The Last Dance’ documentary.
Hodges, who won three consecutive NBA Three-Point Contests from 1990-1992, was a member of the Bulls from 1988-1992 and was a part of their 1991 and 1992 championship teams.
Not only was Hodges upset at Jordan for acknowledging the ‘Bulls Traveling Cocaine Circus’ story from the 1984-1985 team, but he was also critical of Jordan calling Scottie Pippen ‘selfish’ for his contract dispute during the 1997-1998 season, and was baffled that Jordan called out Horace Grant for supposedly providing intimate and damning details to an author of a tell-all book about the team during the mid-90’s.
Check out the interview with Chris Broussard and Rob Parker above as Jordan’s former teammate details why he’s mad he didn’t get to have a say in the documentary and provide another point of view.
