Dennis Rodman and Michael Jordan both starred in the recently-released ESPN documentary that highlighted the 1997-1998 seasn where they would win their final championship before the team was dismantled.

Despite its popularity among fans, there has been criticism including from Horace Grant, Scottie Pippen, and Craig Hodges, who came out not feeling the overall doc and how it portrayed them or others on the team.

However Rodman, who helped the Bulls complete a second ‘three-peat” by winning three straight titles in 1996, 1997 and 1998, has defended the legendary Jordan from those teammates.

“The players were a little upset because they felt Michael was throwing them under the bus. ‘You guys wasn’t doing what I want you to do, I’m the greatest, I’m determined to win no matter what,’ Rodman said on the “Good Morning Britain” program, via Matt Maltby of Mirror.

“The next thing you know Michael starts to talking about the whole team… the team-mates I played with.

“Mentally I don’t think they were strong enough to handle that, because Phil Jackson is a laid back coach. Michael is more like, ‘I’m going to do it watch me be famous’. I didn’t care because I was already famous.”

The former Defensive Player of the Year winner was already a 2-time champ with the “Bad Boys” Detroit Pistons before he made his way to the Chicago Bulls after 2 years with the Spurs.
