Michael Jordan Says Iconic Flu Game Was Really Food Poisoning From Pizza

In Episode 9 of "The Last Dance" on Sunday, Jordan described ordering a late-night pizza that he believes gave him food poisoning.

Grover said he ordered a pizza, and five people came to deliver it to Jordan's room. "They weren't going to be worth the money they were going to get in the market", Reinsdorf said.

But, Jordan said, he ate the whole thing, and by 3 a.m. he was vomiting.

During his time with the Bulls, one of his most common victims were the Charlotte Hornets.

"'One hundred percent it was food poisoning, 100 percent", Grover said.

"I said, 'Well, I think I should just take a break. I will do the rest", Jordan declared, according to the trainer.

Given all that context, here's a look at Jordan's five best games against the Charlotte Hornets. I wake up about 2:30 throwing up left and right'. "I've made my own assumptions about it", said Jordan.

"It's maddening, because I felt like we could have won seven", Jordan said.

"We're not taking that chance today", Kerr said on the "Runnin' Plays" podcast this month. "If that happened with Steph [Curry] or Klay [Thompson] or any of our players, no way we're dealing with that". "We were at a high school in Park City, 45 minutes outside of Salt Lake, for that Finals game, and. he could barely move".

Naturally, Episode 10 culminated with Jordan's historic Game 6 victor over Bryon Russell, which earned Chicago its sixth National Basketball Association title and second three-peat of the decade.

"After the sixth championship, I offered him the opportunity to come back", Reinsdorf said.

"If you asked all the guys who won in '98".
