    Michael Jordan has been accused of lying about several things during ESPN and Netflix's hugely popular documentary 'The Last Dance'.
    'it was like when a TV movie comes on and they say, "this is based on a true story." That's what that was. It was based on a true story.'
    About coming back after '98:
    longtime NBA writer Sam Smith says a number of claims made in it are untrue.

    Smith, author of 1992 New York Times bestseller 'The Jordan Rules, refutes Jordan's 'revelation' that he wanted to return to the Chicago Bulls after they won their final title in 1998.
    Jordan claimed in the final episode that all four of them have returned on one-year contracts if owner Jerry Reinsdorf would have offered them but Smith calls this a 'blatant lie'.

    'That was a complete and blatant lie by Michael,' he said
    Jordan wanting to return for the 1998-99 season] was a complete, blatant lie. I know what happened.'
    About the 'flu game':
    'The pizza thing - the poison - that was complete nonsense,' said Smith

    Which proves my point no? Lowry is outlier. But Butler had to change multiple teams and KD and PG didn't want to play with Westbrook anymore
    True, but none of those guys are as good or as powerful as MJ. More dominant than KD, more famous than lebron. Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson were the 2 icons. Easy now for players to talk that shit, tougher when you're actually playing with the jesus christ superstar

    people want to play with guys like Curry, Duncan, Lebron. MJ would have to adapt.
    Kyrie didn't want to play with Lebron. So he's not well liked by everyone. Although Kyrie is a weird cat.

    Kobe was kind of an asshole too.. he raked Dwight over the coals when he was a Laker. And yet Nash wanted to play with him.

    But yeah.. will be hard to play with MJ for sure. He'll help you win, but you have to be ready to play.

    the game is so buddy-buddy now and reading twitter a lot of players are saying they wouldn't take that bullshit from Mike. So I think in this era MJ wouldn't win a championship because he wouldn't be able to form a big 3 or get good players play with him

    the way he was taking back seat to Anthony Davis and promoting Davis will be used against him.

    And demar would have been pretty elite offensively in those days, probably even more so than now. He stubbornly refused to adapt, its like he takes pride in being the guy who plays like he was dropped straight from 1987 into today
    No doubt. He'd be a regular season stud back then and get steamrolled by MJ in the playoffs.

    The thing about Jordan is he honed his game for what the thought he needed to win at the time he played. If he played by today's rules he would focus on different things if he thought it would give him an edge. Also, he was around as effective overall as James as a three point shooter and he was better than Wade so does it really matter? I think the answer is, no it does not. To focus on that is to miss the big picture.

    The one block he had at 10:03 in the video is just insane.

    People always talk about "how effective would Michael Jordan’s midrange game be in today's game?" and then they would start talking about DeRozan. The GREATEST player in the game today - Kawhi Leonard - is a midrange scorer. I think Kawhi averaged 27ppg last year and 31ppg in the playoffs. Michael Jordan is like Kawhi on steroids lol.

    Late 90's version of Jordan would easily average 40+ppg in today's game. The early version of Jordan? that dude would destroy the league.
