However, Jordan defended his action. “Because I choose to spend a few days privately with my family, everybody is saying that I’m disrespecting the team and disrespecting the President,” JET magazine reported.
And he added, “I’m not disrespecting the President. He has a family so he understands that.”
However, teammate Horace Grant was not happy with Jordan’s decision.
“It’s a double standard, and it’s been a double standard for the four years that I’ve played here,” he said.
