A 1984 clip used in the 10-part ESPN documentary series The last dance, which covers Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls from 1997-1998, captures New York Knicks legend Walt “Clyde” Frazier, saying that Jordan could not “wear a team” because he was not seven feet high.
Jordan eventually led the Bulls to six titles in eight years, and Marc Berman of New york post caught up with Frazier soon after the comments were posted.
” At first I didn’t know him so well in college,” Frazier told Berman about the remarks. “Anyone who plays for Dean Smith, they hold them back. Vince Carter, [James] Worthy. You never know the versatility of these guys when they play for North Carolina. He keeps them in a team system. No one knew he was going to do what he did. ”
The Bulls placed Jordan third overall in the UNC in the 1984 draft.
