Good episode? Give it some love!
Author of The Jordan Rules, Bulls.com columnist and Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, Sam Smith. Our conversation begins with Sam's early career at the Chicago Tribune. He talks about meeting Michael Jordan for the first time, covering the Bulls in the 1980's and his continued friendship with all-time great, Phil Jackson. We cover his relationship with iconic commentators, Johnny 'Red' Kerr and Jim Durham, plus the incredible access Sam had to players and coaches whilst writing his New York Times best-selling book. Sam shares a great behind-the-scenes story about 'The Shot' (Jordan over Ehlo in the 1989 NBA Playoffs) and we discuss his induction to the Basketball Hall of Fame, for contributions to the game. We finish up with a little modern day Bulls basketball chat, including the latest on Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose's return.
