'This so-called documentary… 90 per cent of it was BS': Netflix series 'The Last Dance' 'wasn't real' claims Michael Jordan's former Chicago Bulls team-mate Horace Grant as he says criticism of the star was 'edited out'

Despite Netflix‘s The Last Dance documentary on Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls captivating sports fans across the globe, one of his team-mates provided a damning assessment of the series. 

Horace Grant, who went on to win three championships alongside Jordan before joining the Orlando Magic, described it as a ‘so-called documentary’ that painted Jordan in a better light than in reality.  

‘I would say [the documentary was] entertaining, but we know, who was there as team-mates, that about 90 per cent of it [was] BS in terms of the realness of it,’ Grant said on ESPN 1000’s Kap and Co podcast

It wasn’t real – because a lot of things [Jordan] said to some of his team-mates, that his team-mates 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 goes on to reveal that he last communicated with Jordan three years ago via text and the pair’s fractious relationship was touched on during the series when Jordan accused Grant of being the one leaking information to journalist Sam Smith for the infamous Jordan Rules book that came out in 1992. 

The book generated a lot of interest at the time with Jordan, arguably for the first time in his career at that stage, reflected in a less-than-impressive light in certain sections.
