NBA: Tim Duncan On Being Unimpressed By Michael Jordan And Not Liking Him

I’ve heard plenty of people speak on not being the biggest fan of Michael Jordan’s personality but I’ve never heard someone talk about being “unimpressed” by him on the basketball court.

The Q&A style interview was published in the year 2000 in Patrick’s book called “Outtakes” and yesterday, Stefan Bondy of the NYDN, dug up the highlights and Duncan really seemed to dislike Jordan and loved a young Stephon Marbury.
