Michael Jordan Wouldn’t Let ESPN Film In His Real House


Michael Jordan has been a massive topic of conversation these days thanks to the ESPN documentary, “The Last Dance.” Of course, Jordan is easily one of the greatest basketball players of all time but thanks to this new docuseries, people can’t stop talking about the Chicago Bulls legend and all of his antics and triumphs from his playing days.

The director of the documentary, Jason Hehir, has been doing a ton of press to promote the ESPN series and he has been divulging some interesting information in the process. Recently, Hehir noted that all of the interviews were filmed at three different homes and that Jordan didn’t want anything to take place in his own house

“There are certain aspects of his life that he wants to keep private,” Hehir said to Jason Guerrasio of Insider. “He just didn’t want people to see all that. I respected that, so I never pushed back. I looked for places that seemed like Michael might live in. I knew what his real house looked like and I knew this is a wealthy guy who has certain tastes, so we wanted something to match that.”

Clearly, Jordan is a very private guy but to be fair, if Hehir hadn’t said anything, we probably would have never noticed.
