OUR MAN CRUMBS
“It’s been 10 years since Jerry Krause, Phil Jackson and Michael Jordan parted company in a hail of spite and anger after winning six championships together with the Chicago Bulls.
It’s unlikely that the three ever posed together for a photograph, even in their sunnier days, but if they had Krause would have been the short dumpy guy looking entirely out of place.
The caption for that photo might have noted that Jordan was the one with the fierce presence and incredible talent and Jackson was the one with the cunning.
Well, he was the one with big enough balls to stand up to both of them.”
The article talks about the moves Jordan wanted to make as opposed to the moves Krause made, as well as how Krause came to put together the coaching staffs that led the Bulls to all those titles. It’s a fantastic read.
Those were the days. I like John Paxson but I don’t think we need 6 guards on our roster. Think Crumbs wouldn’t have done some dealing by now?
