The legend of Michael Jordan being a fiery competitor wasn’t just a myth. We’ve always heard that Bulls practices were insanely intense. Jordan slapping Steve Kerr in the face during a practice is well documented, but that wasn’t Mike’s only run-in with a teammate. Apparently there was an incident that included a closed fist.
According to Horace Grant, who was a guest on New York’s Hot 97 radio station a few days ago, MJ beat up 7’0″ Will Perdue during a practice.
We think Kobe Bryant is bad with his teammates, but he had nothing on MJ. Imagine if there was Twitter back then. Take a listen, beginning at the 4:38 mark.
