Sunday is the final day for the playing of “The Last Dance,” which is ESPN’s 10-part documentary on Michael Jordan and the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls.
Throughout the series, we’ve been shown just how insanely competitive and unforgiving Jordan was towards everybody on his team, but it helped him win six NBA championships.
The Last Dance has helped spark more conversations about the current NBA and whether players of today could deal with his type of motivation tactics.
Bleacher Report NBA insider Ric Bucher asked some NBA general managers to give their thoughts on it, and despite his immense talent on the court, one GM ssttaed Kevin Durant “could not play with Jordan.”
“There’s only one guy who wouldn’t willingly move over and be No. 2—KD,” an Eastern Conference GM told Bucher. “He’d struggle playing with Michael. Too sensitive, and he’d want to shoot all the balls. If Michael yelled at him for missing too many shots, he wouldn’t have liked it.”
“KD? No chance,” another GM said.
After blowing a 3-1 series lead to the Golden State Warriors — Durant would take his talents to the team a month later for three seasons and help them win two more championships.
He publicly had a fallen out with Draymond Green, which led to him leaving last offseason to the Brooklyn Nets. He has also been known to show disdain from criticism from the media as well as on Twitter by clapping back at fans.
