Jerry Reinsdorf got let off the hook way to easily in the doc. He had just as much of a hand in deconstructing the Bulls dynasty as Krause did. He knew at the start of the season that Krause wasn't going to bring Phil back, and how MJ felt about that. A move like that doesn't happen unless he signs off on it. And if he didn't want it, he could have told Krause, if you fire Phil, I'm firing you, and then rehiring him.
This doc was never going to be an exposé or controversial... But it did give us enough to revisit the idea of why the iconic Bulls team were disbanded...
I agree Reinsdorf got off very lightly... There were a few segments where Jerry Krause is put on the spot, but not much else... The rest is just relying on Jordan's straight talking...
Agreed. Reinsdorf was the owner and basically had the final say on everything. It seems like he used Krause as a shield for the criticism of decisions he agreed with and Krause being dead and unable to defend himself rubs me the wrong way about the whole thing.
