BREAKING: Michael Jordan’s ‘Flu Game’ Should Actually Be Called The ‘Premeditated Poisoned Pizza Performance”
First we find out Kevin Durant is a fraud, and hours later, we find out Michael Jordan shares that same dishonor. What a sad day it's been for NBA fans, and society as a whole. Tune into CNN for the latest hot truths.
Seriously, though, this is kinda big news. Jordan's notorious "Flu Game" is, well, notorious, but its description is actually fraudulent, apparently. If this is right (and it sounds credible), the "Flu Game" should have actually been the "Premeditated Poisoned Pizza Performance," as I so poetically have labeled it.
Grover says Jordan didn't have the flu at all. Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose have recently debated whether or not Jordan was in fact hung over for that game, a suggestion that Grover scoffs at.
The real truth, Grover says, is that Jordan was poisoned.
"100 percent," Grover says on TrueHoop TV. "He was poisoned for the 'flu game.' Everyone called it a flu game, but we sat there. We were in the room." Grover explains:
We were in Park City, Utah, up in a hotel. Room service stopped at like nine o'clock. He got hungry and we really couldn't find any other place to eat. So we said eh, the only thing I can find is a pizza place. So we says all right, order pizza.
We had been there for a while. Everybody knew what hotel. Park City was not many hotels back then. So everyone kind of knew where we were staying.
So we order pizza.
Five guys came to deliver this pizza.
I take the pizza and I tell them: "I've got a bad feeling about this. ... I've just got a bad feeling about this."
Out of everybody in the room, [MJ] was the only one who ate. Nobody else had it.
And then 2 o'clock in the morning I get a call to my room. Come to the room. He's curled up in the fetal position. We're looking at him, finding the team physician at that time.
Immediately I told him it's food poisoning.
Not the flu.
At first, "Poisoned Pizza Performance" sounds as if MJ's feat was less masculine and ballsy, yet when you account for the possible sabotage he thwarted, this "Premeditated Pizza Poisoning Performance" seems even more impressive than the supposed "Flu Game." The perniciousness MJ overcame is preposterous.
