“Man, I’m ecstatic,” Michael Jordan told ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt after viewing the first two episodes of “The Last Dance,” destined to become a sports documentary classic.
"Michael Jordan is unquestionably the greatest basketball player ever, and I taught him a lot to help him grow into a champion," Jackson shared. "But don't you dare think for one minute I had any influence on the way that guy ruins, I mean, runs a basketball team."
I never dreamed we could get this far in such a short time,” Jordan told the Charlotte Observer. “When we won two games in a row during the final week of last season, beating the Wizards and Hornets, I knew we would earn this respect.”
“MJ and I were kicking back one night talking about what our dream jobs would be," said Rose. "He confessed that he always wanted to be a beer vendor. So I asked him, why not?”
“Man, I thought I was there to be an invited guest,” guard Kemba Walker told the Charlotte Observer. “As soon as I arrived at the reception hall, they put a dinner jacket on me and handed over a platter of bacon-wrapped chestnuts.”
“They have talent,” said Jordan of Team USA. “But I'd like to see those All-Stars who never play with each other develop a rapport fast enough to not only deal with the Puerto Rico's and Germany's of the world, but also the Charlotte Bobcats. Guys like Bismack Biyombo, Kemba Walker and Matt Carroll go out there and fight and sweat for one another. They could mop the floor with this Team USA.”
