    Clyde Drexler didn’t need to see “The Last Dance” to understand Michael Jordan any more than he already does.

    “I lived it,” the former TrailBlazers star and early 1990s Jordan foe told SportsTalk 790’s A-Team on Wednesday. “That’s Michael’s documentary of course it’s going to be from his perspective. It was a golden era and everybody is entitled to their own opinion.

    “In that era, there were nothing but men, real men who played. A lot of times guys didn’t like each other from other teams, but as you get older, you’ve got to get beyond all of that and show some love and some respect for the people you played with and against. I hope Michael was able to do that in his documentary.”

    No doubt Clyde is a better man than MJ.

    what's going to shock a lot of people on this board is


    that this is the first time they realized that Clyde Drexler played in the same era

    Nope, MJ did none of that in Last Dance.

    All he did was continue to talk sh!t about everyone in the game and toot his own horn. No respect

    Trash headline

    Where does Clyde say anything that even resembles that clickbait headline?

    In fact it sounds like Clyde didn't even watch.

    MJ was always chauvinistic that he couldn't relax and be humble for a minute during down times around people. Always had to make things a competition... Who can stand that? I've experienced his cheap tips first hand and Barkley says he's like that wherever he goes.

    The New York Post's headline not mine

    I'm going with the old school format of not changing the headline of someone else's article.

    But...

    You know what Drexler is saying when you decode his Drexlerisms

    @Os Trigonum
    @Clutch
    PROOF THAT THE MEDIA THAT CLUTCHFANS LOVE, DON'T LOVE THE ROCKETS

    Shannon talking about Clyde
    'I went to Finals, I didn't WIN ANY'

    Skip then said Clyde won it with Houston, but said Jordan was PLAYING BASEBALL

    @Clutch

    if we have members who's blood doesn't boil when they hear the media lie about Clutch City, you MUST DELETE THEIR ACCOUNTS AND BAN THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES AND THEIR UNBORNS

    Before rap I loved stomp. Then the rap beat got me. And then I had the words spelled out for me. Hearing isn’t my forte.

    And long before rap there was the 60s. It was real then, and frankly it’s always real.

    Drexler was being real when he said he didn't watch that ESPN ratings grab caused he lived it

    Proud of Clyde!

    Jordan has always used the media to make him look good. That's one thing he and Lebron have in common they both knew how to do that and how to berate the refs without ever getting a technical foul. I know you remember when JVG called Jordan out for the mind games he tried to play on his opponents and the media goes wild and said he's in the Knicks heads and other bs like that.

    Didn’t want to bring it up but Clyde sure did mention a lot of guys in the running for GOAT and he didn’t throw in Dreams name. George Gervin? Dr J? Elgin Baylor? We can do better than that Clyde. I mean consummate professionals, absolutely, but GOAT? Slow down.

    Jordan is a losing owner, and Kerr is a winning coach. Pippen grinding out a media personality.

    The hornets have been terrible for a while so not surprised Jordan trashed opponents because Jordan still selling them sneakers and winning in the sneaker game 35 plus years!

    Jordan was the 2nd highest scorer in 95, so him not playing then has always been horse ****. He couldn't win a damn thing without an All Star Power Forward. I still think Stern went to the Spurs and said "Trade Rodman to the Bulls for nothing, and you'll be rewarded when Jordan retires.

    Funny how that all worked out for both teams...

    Get far enough into the video and you could conclude that Magic is the GOAT.
