Michael Jordan reveals in the opening parts of the documentary “The Last Dance” how he avoided the so-called “traveling cocaine circus” that included Chicago Bulls players when he first joined the team.

Craig Hodges, who was on the Bulls from 1988 to 1992, expressed his dissatisfaction in an interview on FOX Sports Radio Tuesday about Jordan talking about players of that era.

“As players, we call it a fraternity. So I’m watching the first episode and I was overwhelmed by the “cocaine circus,” said Hodges.

“It bothered me because I was thinking of the brothers who are in this photo with you and who have to explain to their families who are preparing to watch this great documentary event of Michael Jordan and they know that you are in the team, and now you have to explain this to a 12 year old boy. “

Hodges also accused Jordan of calling Scottie Pippen “selfish” for delaying foot surgery until the start of the season in a contractual dispute with the team, accusing Horace Grant of being source from author Sam Smith’s book The Jordan Rules.

“Then the Scottie Pippen part. Scottie was “selfish”. Come on man, come on. And then last night with Horace, it hurt me. I let MJ know it’s not good, man. Horace did not deserve to take the fall for the “rules of Jordan,” said Hodges. “If MJ knows something else and knows Horace’s motive, then tell us how Horace did it for me, because I’m your teammate brother, just like them, and I’m a little salty how everyone has been interviewed except me. “
