Michael Jordan’s former Chicago Bulls teammate Horace Grant has hit out the ‘so-called’ Netflix documentary The Last Dance called it ’90 per cent BS’.
The documentary has captivated basketball and non-basketball fans alike across the globe during the coronavirus pandemic.
It tells the story of Jordan and the legendary Bulls team who won six NBA Championships over eight seasons.
Grant won three championships with Jordan between 1991 and 1993 before moving to the Orlando Magic.
The 54-year-old put the legitimacy of the documentary in doubt and said it had been cleverly edited.
He told Chicago’ ESPN 1000: “I would say [the documentary was] entertaining, but we know, who was there as teammates, that about 90 per cent of it [was] BS in terms of the realness of it.
“It wasn’t real — because a lot of things [Jordan] said to some of his teammates, that his teammates went back at him.
“But all of that was kind of edited out of the documentary, if you want to call it a documentary.”
Grant was accused by Jordan of being one of the sources for Sam Smith’s 1992 book, The Jordan Rules, which chronicled the 1990-91 Bulls season.
It gave an unflattering depiction of Jordan, which included clashes with teammates.
Hitting back at Jordan’s allegation, he said: “[He] puts this lie out that I was the source behind [the book].
“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.
“The mere fact that Sam Smith was an investigative reporter. He had to have two sources, TWO, to write a book.
“Why would MJ just point me out? It’s only a grudge, man. I’m telling you, it was only a grudge. And I think he proved that during this so-called documentary.
“If you ever say something about him, he’s going to cut you off, he’s going to try to destroy your character.”

Grant also went on to accuse Jordan of being a snitch himself for his comments about his Bulls teammates during his rookie season.
The former Bulls centre said: “He said that I was the snitch, but still after 35 years he brings up his rookie year going into one of his team-mates’ rooms and seeing coke, weed and women.
“My point is: Why the hell did he want to bring that up? What’s that got to do with anything?
“I mean, if you want to call somebody a snitch, that’s a damn snitch right there.”
