Why Michael Jordan is the Greatest Trash Talker Ever
Jerry Stackhouse speaks with Brown and Scoop to set the record straight
Soul Singing Can Throw Your Game Off.
Michael Jordan’s trash-talking prowess is historic in nature. If you use the google machine you’ll discover Jordan stands alone on the mountain top. Forget the time when Larry Bird asked competitors before an All-Start Three-Point Shooting Contest “who’s coming in 2nd.” This story about Jerry Stackhouse takes first prize.
In spring of 2016, former NBA guard Roshown McCloud, told the Brown and Scoop Podcast about the funniest memory from his career.
“I just remember stories of Jordan singing to guys when he was playing. His number one song was ‘Giving You The Best That I Got.’ I remember him singing that to Jerry Stackhouse one day and just putting on a show. It was like he had a concert going on in his own head. He gave it to you every time.
He had an answer for everything that came out of anyone’s mouth. Very few guys were able to do that, but when you found a guy like Jordan or a guy like Kobe that could do it, it was a memorable moment.”
Damn, that’s cold. I believe this story wholeheartedly. But, according to Stackhouse, it didn’t happen at all. Like they say, there are always three versions to a story…in this case, Stackhouse’s, McCloud’s and the truth.
Anita Baker is an amazing vocalist, but I have to admit, if I am raising up for a jumper with soul classics being sung to me, I’d be distracted.
