Michael Jordan was the “devil,” according to former partner at Bulls

During his time with the Chicago Bulls, Horace Grant saw Michael Jordan as the “devil.” He meant it in a good way, though.

Grant spoke with NBA Insider, Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson, on the Scoop B radio podcast, where he detailed his experience as a player for the Bulls along with His Airness. Grant was drafted by Chicago in 1987 and remained with the team until 1994. He was a key part of the Windy City franchise’s first three consecutive NBA titles from 1991 to 1993.

During his seven-year tenure with the Bulls, Grant was able to really get a feel for how Jordan performed on the court and in practice. And having that firsthand experience convinced him that there is no other player better than MJ in the history of the game.

“Man, let me tell you, we thought this guy was the devil. When I say the devil, it’s out of respect. The way he was training, we thought we were the Detroit Pistons or the New York Knicks. This guy trained so hard, and if you weren’t on his team in practice, you were his sworn enemy.”, he said Grant to Scoop B. “And that’s why you can say he was the best player I ever played this game.”

Everyone knows how much of a “devil” Michael Jordan was (and still is), it was natural for him to give his all in any game, whether it was friendly or official competition.
