Scott Burrell: I warned my family about Michael Jordan scene in documentary

0 Comments

Michael Jordan had a sharp tongue and persistent aim for Bulls teammate Scott Burrell.

We saw that in episode 4 of ESPN’s “The Last Dance” documentary, as Jordan needled Burrell on a team flight.

Jordan:

This man never gets sleep. Dennis Rodman Junior.

Burrell:

Don’t say that on camera.

Jordan:

He never gets his sleep. Single man, and he thinks he can hang out all night.

Burrell:

Hey, hey, don’t put that on tape. Don’t put that on tape.

Jordan:

If he committed to one girl ever, it’s a lie. It’s a lie. He’s out every night.

Burrell:

Do not put this on tape right here.

Jordan:

Why not? Get some sleep, man.

Burrell:

I do. I get a whole of sleep.

Jordan:

Look at you. You’ve got a hangover this morning.

Burrell:

No, I – M. My mom and dad are going to watch this, M.

Jordan:

Mom and dad, he’s an alcoholic.

Burrell:

Well, I warned my parents about that part was going to be in the movie. So, I knew that part was coming, and someone told it was going to come in today’s film. So, I was like, “Oh boy. When is it coming?” So I’m sitting on the couch watching with Jeane, my wife, and I was like, “What is she going think? What are her parents going to think?” But you know what? That was 20-something years ago. So, that’s a different way of life, and I wasn’t really that bad. I was a normal 28-year-old kid playing basketball, working on my craft every day.

His wife, Jeane Coakley, was unbothered:

No word on how the 1984 Bulls explained That Story to their families.
