NBA analyst Chris Broussard, on The Odd Couple podcast, reacted to the latest comments by Jerry Stackhouse, who said it wasn’t a pleasant experience playing with Michael Jordan in the Washington Wizards.

“I know, I covered the team, I was with the Wizards that year, about the last week or two of Jordan’s career. I wrote for the New York Times a story about his last game. The players were sick of him. I mean they really weren’t enjoying playing with the great Michael Jordan that most of them grew up idolizing, including [Jerry] Stackhouse,” the analyst said.

His colleague Rob Parker added: “It was a mess. If I remember correctly, didn’t they [Wizards’ players] voted not to give him [Michael Jordan] a birthday present? That’s how petty it had gotten.”
