Former NBA player Channing Frye doesn’t think current players in the league would like playing with Michael Jordan.
Jordan has been the talk of the sports world ever since “The Last Dance” started airing on ESPN about his time with the Chicago Bulls, but Frye isn’t impressed. Not only is he not impressed, he doesn’t think NBA players would like being teammates with Jordan. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
“He only had really one job. And that was to just score. And he did that at an amazing, amazing rate. But I don’t feel like his way of winning then would translate to what it is now. Guys wouldn’t want to play with him,” Frye said about Jordan during an interview on the Talkin’ Blazers Podcast, according to Yahoo Sports.
This is an earthquake of a take from Frye. You can argue all you want that Jordan wouldn’t mesh with current players because of his attitude.
That’d be a reasonable take. However, claiming he wouldn’t mesh because he was a scorer is laugh-out-loud outrageous.
If this doesn’t motivate you to be great, I don’t know what will. “Winning has a price, leadership has a price… ‘The one thing about Michael Jordan was he never asked me to do something that he didn’t ****ing do.” pic.twitter.com/sEt4eE9nTz

I honestly have no idea what the hell Frye is even talking about. It makes no sense at all. Players wouldn’t like Jordan because all he did is score?
Interesting. Do we think current players would like winning six rings? Something tells me they would.
Again, there are legit criticisms of Jordan, and I’m certainly not one of his delusional fans. The man pushed people really hard.
However, the idea current players wouldn’t want to play with him because he was primarily a score is so incredibly stupid.
