Allen Iverson Reveals The First 5 Words Michael Jordan Said To Him”

In the waning moments of Episode 8 in ESPN's "Last Dance" documentary, Reggie Miller is being interviewed before the 1998 Eastern Conference Finals between the Pacers and the dynastic Bulls.

Sure enough, Jordan logged 44:17 of court time - his fourth-most in any playoff game that year - while adding seven rebounds, five assists and three steals to his game-high 38 points.

'I ate the pizza, ' Jordan said. The night before Game 5, sometime after all the restaurants had closed, and after what he said was the hotel's cutoff of about 9 p.m. for room service, Jordan got hungry.

During his time with the Bulls, one of his most common victims were the Charlotte Hornets.

Former Cleveland Cavalier Kendrick Perkins tweeted his thoughts on how Michael Jordan suffered food poisoning prior to Game 5 of the '97 championship series. He performed well but looked ill and was said to be suffering from "flu-like symptoms".

Houston Rockets star Russell Westbrook has had several alterations with fans in Salt Lake City dating back to his days with the Oklahoma City Thunder, and retired Rockets guard Vernon Maxwell joked on Twitter that he was too suspicious to eat in Utah. 'But obviously it just sounds better to be the "Flu Game" than the "Food Poisoning Game"'.
