Not sure if true as only saw a glimpse of the story, but apparently an NBA rep, in a show of cockiness/arrogance, went around a press conference touching all the mics to downplay the virus and as if it shirk the seriousness of it all.

Turns out he now has the virus.

The Last Dance: Scottie Pippen 'beyond livid' with Michael Jordan over documentary, says radio host

SLIDES - 1/3

NBA legend Scottie Pippen is reported "beyond livid" with former Chicago Bulls teammate Michael Jordan over his portrayal in smash-hit series The Last Dance.

The ESPN documentary tells the story of the Bulls teams which, led by Jordan, won six NBA Championships in eight years during the 1990s.

NBA Hall of Famer Pippen is one of only two other members of the side to have been present in all six title wins and was regarded as Jordan’s most important right-hand-man throughout his career.

One of the greatest players in the history of the game in his own right, Pippen was also at times a controversial character, and the series picks out several moments for scrutiny.

Jordan – who maintained editorial control over the series – called Pippen’s decision to delay foot surgery at the start of the 1997/98 season “selfish”, while a separate episode retold the story of Pippen’s refusal to leave the bench during a 1994 playoff game over a disagreement about who would take the last shot.

Chicago radio host David Kaplan said on his ESPN 1000 show: "[Pippen is] so angry at Michael and how he was portrayed, called selfish, called this, called that, that he is furious that he participated and did not realise what he was getting himself into.

The final episode of the series focused on the 1998 Finals series against the Utah Jazz, showed Pippen in a more positive light as he battled through crippling back pain to stay on the court during Game 6.

"[Pippen] felt like up until the last few minutes of Game 6 against the Jazz [in the 1998 NBA finals, during the series' last episode], it was just 'bash Scottie, bash Scottie, bash Scottie'," Kaplan added.

Pippen is not the only former Bull apparently unhappy with the series, with Horace Grant having accused Jordan of holding a grudge over his portrayal.

Well MJ has always had a reputation of being an egotistic douchebag, so it's not all that surprising...
