The documentary The Last Dance of Michael Jordan keep giving talk. One of those who does not intervene is Karl Malone, but after the end of the broadcasts ESPN has recovered an interview conducted in February 2019 and not yet broadcast. In it Malone, while smoking a cigar, is asked about his opinion on Michael Jordan.

Michael Jordan is Michael Jordan. What else do I have to say? Why should I talk about it? Even so, I’m man enough to accept the responsibility that we don’t win. We had it and we didn’t, ”he explains when questioned about the 1998 final, in whose sixth game Jordan stole the ball that gave rise to the aforementioned basket and the title for Chicago.

“But we were playing against the Bulls, who weren’t just Michael Jordan. I have the highest respect for Michael, but I never thought I was playing against him but against his entire team. Everyone talks about whether he was a bad man or not, but I was also a very bad son of a bitch. That’s how I saw it and that’s how I say it because it is part of who I am ”, he concludes.
