Michael Jordan Didn’t Want to Draft Kwame Brown


MJ drafting Kwame Brown got brought up as a joke and this is what Falk said:

“That was not his decision.  That was someone else’s decision.  Kwame Brown was the first high school player ever drafted (#1 overall) and certain people in the organization thought that would have tremendous promotional value on ticket sales.”

On who Michael Jordan really wanted:

“Michael wanted Elton Brand.  They wanted to make a trade, he wanted to bring in Elton Brand.”
