I could believe this, pretty interesting


It has become known as “The Flu Game,” but Michael Jordan’s former personal trainer wants you to know one of the signature performances of MJ’s career had more to do with bad pizza — possibly poisoned by passionate Utah Jazz fans.

During that Game 5 performance of the 1997 NBA Finals between the Bulls and Jazz, Jordan was visibly ailing, yet scored 38 points to help fuel a 90-88 victory.Yes, 100 percent poisoned for [‘The Flu Game’],” Grover recently told TrueHoop TV. “Everyone called it a ‘Flu Game,’ but we sat there and we were in the room, we were in Park City, Utah, up in a hotel. Room service stopped at like 9 o’clock. And he got hungry, and we really couldn’t find any other place to eat so we ordered ... I said, ‘Hey, the only thing I could find is a pizza place.’ He said, ‘All right, order pizza.’ We had been there for a while, so everybody knows what hotel ... I mean Park City (didn’t have) many hotels back then. Everybody kind of knew where we were staying.

“So we order a pizza, they come to deliver it, five guys come to deliver this pizza. And I’m just ... I take the pizza, and I tell them, I said, ‘I got a bad feeling about this.’ I said, ‘I just got a bad feeling about this.’ Out of everybody in the room, he was the only one that ate. Nobody else ... then 2 o’clock in the morning, I get a call to my room. I come to the room, he’s curled up, he’s curled up in the fetal position. We’re looking at him. We’re finding the team physician at that time. And immediately I said, ‘It’s food poisoning.’ Guaranteed. Not the flu.”

Last year, former Bulls coach Phil Jackson told a similar story that indicated Jordan was dealing with food poisoning and not the flu.

Flu or food poisoning is pretty much the same in terms of how he was feeling. He felt like absolute hell and played through it.

Lol it could have just been plain old food poisoning. It's kind of silly to think that somebody maliciously tried to poison him. Maybe the pizza was undercooked, it happens.

Bad idea from them, since he killed the jazz then in game 5.

Not news at all. It's been pretty evident he didn't have the flu. The question is, WHAT did he have?

Was just about to post that. Don't remember who was the one that said it though. I remember it was a former player though. A well known one, too.
