Toni Kukoc, Chicago Bulls
It wasn’t just opposing players that earned the ire of MJ. Toni Kukoc had been drafted by the Bulls in 1990 but was still playing in Europe during the 1992 Olympics. Jordan had tired of hearing about general manager Jerry Krause going on and on about Kukoc.
When the Dream Team faced off against Kukoc’s Croatia Jordan, and Scottie Pippen, took it upon themselves to make the occasion miserable for their future teammate. Karl Malone would later say, “They were damn near pulling straws to see who guarded him. Kukoc had no idea. Poor Kukoc ended the night with 4 points on 11 shots. Jordan and Pippen shut him down just to prove a point.
