The Chicago Bulls were looking to win yet another Finals game but an illness to Michael Jordan made one particular game seem more in doubt than others.
The Chicago Bulls already had four championships in a span of six years. They were working on becoming one of the great dynasties in the history of the National Basketball Association. Well, they did end up winning that series in 1997 against the Utah Jazz that gave them five titles in seven years. The likes of Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, and Steve Kerr amongst others helped them reach that feat. One moment in that series made an everlasting impact on the legacy of number 23.
It is known around the world to this day as “The Flu Game”. Michael Jordan was ill going into game five of this Finals against the Jazz. Episode 9 of “The Last Dance” went over this legendary game and exposed some details about it that some people might not know. It is called “The Flu Game” but Michael might have not had the flu after all. It was apparently food poisoning that he got from some pizza that he had delivered the night before.
