One of the things revealed during Sunday’s episodes of The Last Dance was that Michael Jordan wasn’t suffering from the flu in that infamous Game 5 victory over the Utah Jazz in the 1997 NBA Finals.

Despite having similar symptoms, the Bulls superstar racked up 38 points, seven rebounds, five assists, three steals, and a block in the contest.

Now we learned that Jordan had food poisoning, which he believes came from a late-night pizza order.

However, the assistant manager at Park City’s Pizza Hut claimed in an interview on Monday that it’s a “crap story,” although a very memorable one. “It’s a thin crust pepperoni pizza,” recalled Craig Fite.
