    And what do you think of it so far? I've enjoyed the first four episodes. We in Chicagoland knew a lot of that drama was going on (but not all of it), but we were mostly ignored it as long as they kept winning. Phil Jackson's handling of Dennis Rodman was exemplary and showed why Jerry Kraus was a fool to want so badly to get rid of him. The diagrams and explanation of the Triangle offense (and MJ's reaction to it) were very interesting.

    I’v seen a couple of episodes, the one with the Pistons and the Rodman stuff. I’v always disliked Isaiah for the way he and the Pistons acted when the Bulls finally beat them. His “excuse,” that it was okay because that’s what the Celts did to them, was as self serving as it was disingenuous, and so typical of him. I don’t blame Jordan for still carrying a grudge.

    It does my heart good knowing Isaiah knows that he was left off the Dream Team for a reason. That he claims to this day to believe the reason is because they “didn’t shake hands” speaks volumes about his character.

    For the record, all things being equal, no way would Stockton have been on the team if Isaiah hadn’t been such an a-hole.

    But from what I’v heard and read, the rest of it sounds like stuff I’v heard for the last 30 or so years. I might take a look at the rest of it eventually.
