One of the more interesting portions of Sunday’s premiere of The Last Dance, a documentary about the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls, was neither the never-before-seen footage of Michael Jordan cursing at his teammates in practice, nor was it the reminder of Jordan’s basketball supremacy through a montage of highlights shown hundreds of times since they happened. More fascinating than both of those things was the state of Jordan’s drink glass that sat next to the Hall of Famer during his one-on-one interviews.
“Every time you see that glass to the top, it doesn’t mean we went off camera and filled it back to the top or he filled it to the top, cause I had nothing to do with that process. The first part of the answer might be at 6 o’clock, and the second part of the answer, which is still the same subject comes at 7:20 p.m., and that drink has gone down three inches in an hour-and-a-half. It’s a little deceptive, but it’s funny to see people react that way.”
As for the drink of choice, the Bulls legend is a tequila man so that’s what was in his tumbler which might set you back nearly $400 before there’s even anything in it.
