ESPN’s “The Last Dance” documentary series premiered over the weekend and it not only promised new interviews and a behind-the-scenes look at Michael Jordan and the 1990s Chicago Bulls, but it delivered it in a big way.
One of the biggest takeaways was the must talked about the Bulls being a ‘Traveling Cocaine Circus.’
“One of the articles I read, they called it ‘the Bulls’ traveling cocaine circus,’” an off-camera interviewer asked Jordan of his first season on the team.
“I had one event, preseason, I think we were in Peoria. It was in the hotel, so I’m trying to find my teammates,” Jordan recalls in the documentary, via NBC Sports Chicago. “I started knocking on doors. I get to this one door, and I knock on the door and I can hear someone says, ‘Shhhh… someone’s outside.’ And then you hear this deep voice say, ‘Who is it?’ I say, ‘MJ.’ And then they all say, ‘Aw f**k, he’s just a rookie, don’t worry about it.’
“They open up the door, I walk in and practically the whole team was in there. And it was like, things I’ve never seen in my life as a young kid. You got your lines over here, your weed smokers over here, you’ve got your women over here.”
“The first thing I said, ‘Look, man, I’m out,’” Jordan explained. “Cause all I can about think is, if they come and raid this place right about now, I am just as guilty as everyone else that’s in this room. And from that point on, I was more or less on my own.”
The players that were allegedly in that room have now been identified.
