"But all of that was kind of edited out of the documentary, if you want to call it a documentary."

Grant saved his sharpest criticism for suggestions made by Jordan that he had been a key source for "The Jordan Rules," a book that lifted the lid on the NBA great's career.

Although Grant admitted to being "great friends" with the book's author, Sam Smith, he insisted he had always protected the "sanctity of that locker room." "I would never put anything personal out there," Grant said.

Grant meanwhile also criticised Jordan's conduct as a player with younger members of the Bulls dressing room accusing him of being physically and verbally abusive to team-mates.
