on 41-42%. jordan is an era specific player. 90s was his era but put him in any other era and he's nothing but an average superstar.

Grant and Pip were best friends, I believe he even tried to lure him away from the Bulls when he left.

MJ used to use Grant and Pip as whipping boys, always pushing/punishing them. He used to make snarky remarks and slight disses. I don't have links, but he used to say Shaq was the hardest working player he ever saw (an obvious diss to MJ) and other comments. He and Pip did get treated harshly by MJ, but he made them into champions, something that realize now in hindsight and maturity.

It's true that MJ was rough on Grant. Grant was popular with the rest of the team but Jordan thought Grant was dumb. Jordan was pretty rough on all his teamates, even Pippen.

The season after Pippens famous migraine game they played a regular season game and Pippen has a really rough night. On the team bus afterwards Jordan was looking over the stat sheet and said to Pippen "Headache tonight, Scotty?".

Remember that infamous Jordan Rules book?

Even if youre' not a Jordan fan you should read it, a lot of revealing info on Jordan and the first 3peat Bulls. Apparently the author Sam Smith acquired a lot of the info from Grant.

I remember Grant saying Len Bias was also a better athlete than Jordan. He wasn't crazy about Jordan. Bias was a crazy athlete tho.

I take that back. He put up 33 shots per game in those finals. That won't work a year

The Heat will make Bill Wennington, Luc, and Cartwright into All Star centers.
