Nobody. And there were no signs of flu, anything, being sick before that.
"Five guys delivering one pizza?"
"I followed all the rules", Fite said. The documentary went heavy into examining Pippen's contract conflict with the Bulls in 1997, with Jordan calling Pippen "selfish" for his negotiation tactics that saw him delay a medical procedure. He was even betting on the Bulls to win.
Fite began be disclosing that he was a big fan of Jordan and the Bulls, so much so that he wanted to make the pizza himself and deliver it to the team's hotel.
"We are thrilled with the response from fans throughout the run of the series", Connor Schell, ESPN's executive vice president of content, said in a statement.
In summation, Craig Fite calls the story and conspiracy theory of the pizza being poisoned a "bunch of crap". We were dressed in our uniforms. But Grant clearly left with some scars that were reopened by watching "The Last Dance" along with the rest of us. The guy said, go ahead. "At the time I was trying to impress the store manager there". I would've said the same thing.
Fite, who said he was hired a few weeks earlier as an assistant manager, claims that everyone knew who the pizza was being delivered to, but not specifically who.
While most of us have been able to sleep at night assuming Jordan had the stomach flu, as he scored 38 points and led the Bulls to victory in Utah where the Jazz were 10-0 to that point in the postseason, The Last Dance offered a different explanation. The door kind of opens up a little more.
"'Hey, can I at least say hi to Mike?'" Fite said he said. It's my one shot, right?
"And as I stated, if MJ had a grudge with me, let's settle it like men".
There was no conspiracy, Fite said, no purposeful poisoning of the pizza.
As the series weaves its way through the tumultuous 1997-1998 season, viewers will be transported back to how it all began - from Jordan's childhood roots, the Bulls' dire circumstances before his arrival and how the team was built after drafting him in 1984, to the struggles that eventually led to the team's first National Basketball Association championship. "It was food poisoning".
He not only delivered it, but made it. "So you know that is just the way the game goes".
Fite said he got a peek at Jordan in his room, and saw him playing cards at the time of the delivery. He said he has no confirmation, one way or the other, that MJ had been in Las Vegas, as some had speculated, partying and thereafter hungover.
