In a conversation with ESPN 1000’s David Kaplan, Horace Grant, the 3x Bulls champion explained why he wasn’t the happiest camper while watching the highly-acclaimed docuseries:
“Kap, as I’ve stated to everybody, that is a downright, outright, complete lie. Lie, lie, lie. As I stated, if MJ had a grudge with me, 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. 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.”
Smith was quite the connected journalist, so Grant receiving all the blame from Jordan on national television doesn’t necessarily seem fair. Do I think he could’ve played a role? Sure, but I also wouldn’t be shocked to hear the information came from somewhere else in the organization. Most importantly, I’m not sure it really matters anymore … but that sure isn’t going to stop Grant from defending his honor.
