NBA analyst Chris Broussard on The Odd Couple podcast reacted to the latest comments by Jerrry Stackhouse, who said that it wasn’t a pleasant experience playing with MJ at the Washington Wizards.
“I know, I covered the team, I was with the Wizards that year, about the last week or two of Jordan’s career. I wrote for the New York Times a story about his last game. The players were sick of him. I mean they were really weren’t enjoying playing with the great Michael Jordan that most of them grew up idolizing, including [Jerry] Stakchouse” analyst said.
His colleague Rob Praker added: “It was a mess. If I remember correctly, didn’t they [Wizards’ players] voted not to give him [Michael Jordan] a birthday present? That’s how petty it had gotten.”
