Dennis Rodman doesn't think his teammates had the mental strength to be criticized.
There has been a massive fallout since the final episode of "The Last Dance" and many of Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls teammates are upset with how they were portrayed. Perhaps the two biggest losers of the entire documentary were Horace Grant and Scottie Pippen. Grant was portrayed as some sort of snitch while Pippen was made to seem like a bad teammate, even though he helped MJ get all of his rings.
Recently, Dennis Rodman was asked about how his teammates have been feeling and he gave a pretty interesting answer. As he explains, they simply weren't ready to be criticized in that way and that considering it's Jordan, they should be used to it by now.
“The players were a little upset because they felt Michael was throwing them under the bus. ‘You guys wasn’t doing what I want you to do, I’m the greatest, I’m determined to win no matter what,’ Rodman told "Good Morning Britain." “The next thing you know Michael starts to talking about the whole team… the team-mates I played with. Mentally I don’t think they were strong enough to handle that, because Phil Jackson is a laid back coach. Michael is more like, ‘I’m going to do it watch me be famous’. I didn’t care because I was already famous.”
Over the next few months, Jordan will have a lot to answer for over this doc and we're interested to see where it all goes from here on out.
