Send In The Clowns – 

April 20, 2020 – The six-time NBA champion went on to tell a story from his rookie season where he walked into a hotel room and stumbled upon a scene ranging from things as (now) mundane as weed smoking to the aforementioned cocaine use.

“Look, guys were doing things that I didn’t see. I had one event, preseason, I think we were in Peoria. It was in the hotel… so I’m trying to find my teammates … so I start knocking on doors,” Jordan recounted. “I get to this one door, and I knock on the door and I can hear someone says, “Shh shh shh shh, someone’s outside.” And then you hear this deep voice says, ‘Who is it?’ I say, ‘MJ.’ And then they all say, ‘Aw f–k, he’s just a rookie, don’t worry about it.’ “So, the first thing I said, ‘Look, man, I’m out.’ Cause all I can think about is, if they come and raid this place right about now, I am just as guilty as everyone else that’s in this room, Jordan said. “And from that point on, I was more or less on my own.”
