Horace Grant says "so called documentary" The Last Dance was BS, calls Michael Jordan a snitch
Tell us how you really feel Horace
Horace Grant has clapped back at Michael Jordan for the derogatory things MJ said about him in The Last Dance. The thing he took the most obsession with was Jordan accusing Horace of being the locker room snitch who provided info for Sam Smith's book "The Jordan Rules."
"Lie, lie, lie. ... If MJ had a grudge with me, let's settle this like men," Grant said during the interview. "Let's talk about it. Or we can settle it another way. But yet and still, he goes out and puts this lie out that I was the source behind [the book].
"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. When if you say something about him, he's going to cut you off, he's going to try to destroy your character."
And my point is, he said that I was the snitch, but yet and still after 35 years he brings up his rookie year going into one of his teammate's rooms and seeing coke, and 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."
Honestly, I'm kind of Team Horace on this. MJ is the G.O.A.T, but the stanning for Jordan is kind of ridiculous. You can respect Jordan as the most talented basketball player ever, but still be honest and admit he was an asshole and a bully.
Take this exchange for example:
Now if there was a part right afterwards where Bird joked back, “That’s the last time I’m gracious & congratulate you you motherf#cker,” well that would have been funny. Maybe it was cut out ;) https://t.co/kO2YJBf01u
Like sorry Mike, you're the best at basketball, but you're really not that funny. So many players are scared to say anything negative about Jordan, so I like Horace not "bending the knee" for Jordan. And honestly even though he seems like scum, people should respect Isaih Thomas for not bending the knee either to Jordan.
Jordan is the G.O.A.T, but he wasn't and isn't Jesus or "the Black Jesus" as he referred to himself as. The best at playing basketball. Not so good at a lot of other things. Take for example his success running teams the past two decades. The crazy thing is two of Jordan's best friends were executive producers for The Last Dance and Jordan still came off like a jerk a decent amount of the time. Similar to his Hall of Fame induction speech.
The documentary was a great walk down memory lane of old school basketball and gave us something to look forward to, and while I don't believe it was 90% BS like Grant claims, I do think it was a puff piece for Jordan. John Stockton apparently was extremely hard to get to interview for it due to this.
Curious to see how Jordan responds. Regarding the snitch accusation back at MJ, I guess Jordan could reply back that he didn't name specific names. I'd give Jordan a pass on that. Pretty sure several of his teammates were known drug users, so he didn't really out him. Horace claims The Last Dance footage edited out players' replies when Jordan talked shit to them. Probably would have made Jordan look better to keep a few in, but then he wouldn't have the last word.
