Horace Grant confirms that Michael Jordan tried to keep food away from him after a game. “I could have taken MJ immediately.”
Horace Grant admitted Michael Jordan tried to keep food away from him after feeling bad about his performance during a particular game.
Sam Smith, journalist and author of The Jordan rulesclaimed to have learned that Jordan had told stewardesses not to feed Grant on the flight because he had performed poorly in a game the Chicago Bulls had just finished.
“The players came to me over the years and said, ‘Do you know what he did? He took Horace’s food on the plane because Horace had a bad game, ”said Smith KNBR earlier this month. “[Michael] said the stewardesses, “Don’t feed him, he doesn’t deserve to eat.”
Grant spoke to ESPN 1000 in Chicago on Tuesday, confirming that Jordan had said what a stewardess said above, but added that he immediately took a few “choice words” to stand against his teammate at the time.
“Anyone [who] knows me as a rookie, if someone shows up and tries to snatch my food away, I’ll do my best to hit her A **, ”said Grant explained. “And believe me, I could have taken MJ back then. Yes, it is true that he said to the flight attendant: “Well, don’t give him anything because he played like crap.” And I immediately went back to him.
“I said a few selected words that I will not repeat here. But I said a few words and stood up.” If you want, you come and get it. “And of course he didn’t move. He just barked. But that was the story, but someone [who] knows me where I come from and what I stand for, come on, man. There is no one on earth who would ever try to take food off my plate and not let the back ends hit. “
