It looks like Reggie Miller still harbors some ill will towards Michael Jordan after all these years. I mean, the two guys did fight it out on a basketball court once before.
Jordan’s Chicago Bulls had some great moments not only against the Detroit Pistons, but the Indiana Pacers as well. The former Bulls star has said Miller was probably the player he disliked playing the most. He made a comment back back in 1998 that scarred their relationship.
According to Things.com’s “8 People That Dislike Michael Jordan,” MJ described battling with Miller like “chicken-fighting with a woman” because of the sharpshooter’s “slim physique.”
“It’s like chicken-fighting with a woman. His game is all this flopping-type thing. He weighs only 185 pounds, so you have to be careful, don’t touch him, or it’s a foul,” Jordan said about battling Miller inside the court.
They have issues ever since.
On Tuesday, the former Pacers star appeared on The Dan Patrick Show to discuss the debut of The Last Dance, ESPN’s 10-part documentary on Jordan’s final season and Miller stated he really didn’t want to be a part of it.
“I tried to fight it,” Miller told Patrick. “I didn’t want to do it.”
He was then asked what he would do if he saw Jordan today.
“I might punch him,” Miller said.
“Are you being serious?” Patrick asked.
“Man, there was a lot of stuff being thrown back and forth,” Miller replied.
Part 3 and Part 4 of the documentary are set to air on Sunday night.
