Blake Griffin jokes Michael Jordan owes him a new BTS story after share-all in ‘The Last Dance’
Blake Griffin revealed his passion for Michael Jordan stories, as the Detroit Pistons star admitted that the popular ESPN docuseries “The Last Dance” saved him from boredom during the long quarantine.
Griffin, who signed a deal with Jordan Brand as a rookie, admitted watching the series was “basketball porn,” but noted Jordan still owes him some behind-the-scenes stories to tell after wringing him dry of them in the tell-all docuseries:
“I’ve gotten to spend a decent amount of time with MJ and heard a lot of those stories and I was telling someone the other day — he told us that story about Dennis Rodman having to go to Vegas to get his mind off the season a long time ago and forever that was my Michael Jordan story that I could always tell that no one had heard and now he’s told it for millions of people, so I have to find some more.”

It’s likely Jordan has plenty of other stories from where those came from, as his illustrious 16 years in the league came without a dull moment.
It doesn’t hurt that Griffin has inside access by being part of Team Jordan, but he will have to ask the right questions to get the GOAT to share a story that hasn’t been told before.
He might even get MJ to dish on some of his feud stories with Isiah Thomas, some of which he might have to keep from sharing with some of the Pistons basketball people.
