If you saw “The Last Dance”,  if you’re a Chicago Bulls fan from the late 80’s early 90’s, or just simply a Michael Jordan fan, you’re going to love my conversation with Sam Smith.  Not only does he share some wonderful stories about his years covering the Chicago Bulls as a sports writer for the Chicago Tribune, but he also has some incredibly revealing stories about the team and more specifically, of course, Michael Jordan.  Some will surprise you, some will not, but what he talks with me about really gives you a picture of the team and more importantly the one player that changed the face of basketball forever.  As if that’s not enough, we’ll talk a bit about some of today’s players in comparison and we’ll hear how Sam feels about the comparison between Michael Jordan and his contemporary, LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers.  That line alone has to get your attention!  I think you’re going to enjoy listening to today’s show as much as I did talking with Sam, who now is a part of http://Bulls.com.  Please be sure to give me some feedback.  I look forward to hearing from you.
