Karl Malone and Bryon Russell refuse to be interviewed for “The Last Dance”
Director Jason Hehir revealed through Andrew Perloff that not all big shots want to be interviewed in the documentary “The Last Dance.” According to Hehir, two great men in Utah’s jazz scene, Karl Malone and Byron Russell, declined to be interviewed.
The Jazz faced the Bulls in the 1997 and 1998 NBA Finals, losing both times. The Utah-Chicago final was filled with tension. It seems that the old wound has not healed.
Malone is considered by many to be one of the best players who has never won a championship. This is at least partly the “negligence” of Michael Jordan’s bull.
