From The Jordan Rules, by Sam Smith in 1991:
Who wants the troops to go into Baghdad and go after Hussein?” he asked.
The hands of most of the younger players went up. Jordan, Pippen,, and Grant particularly said the troops should go in and get Hussein.
In the corner, Hodges could barely contain his anger. Jackson, in a way, agreed.
Do you understand, he explained that these are people who will never forget, the people who lose their father or a brother or a relative? They or their children or even their children’s children. Do you want to see, Jackson wondered, your son killed someday in an airplane explosion because we’ve made Iraq a terrorist nation from what we’ve done? A guy with a bomb can just drive into the London Tunnel or walk into the Sears Tower and kill thousands. Is this what you want to see and have it affect your children or their children?
Jackson wanted them to think a little more about the consequences of war. Everyone did.
I am about 2/3 of the way through the book and I cannot figure out how the Bulls are going to put everything together and win a championship.
I do know, however, that Michael Jordan is a total a**hole, but Scottie, at least in this contract year, wasn’t much better. (I knew about Jordan but had heard Scottie was a great teammate)
