If you watched this week's The Last Dance you saw then Cavaliers guard Ron Harper explain the decision in the huddle for Craig Ehlo to guard Michael Jordan on that infamous final shot...(NSFW)...

Well, Craig Ehlo has a little bit of a different take on that situation. Per Cleveland.com...
quote:

“I never said I was a Jordan stopper like Gerald Wilkins or anything,” Ehlo said during an extensive call with cleveland.com this week. “But back then Harp and me were on the court at the same time and he was our big offensive threat. So, when I came in it was a no-brainer that I would guard Jordan so Harp could rest on defense and play on offense.

“Harp had never really talked about defense or guarding people. He wasn’t a bad defender, I will give him that much, but I think those years with the Bulls where he got those championships, he was definitely third or fourth fiddle, so all of a sudden he becomes this lockdown defender, apparently. I don’t really remember him during our time wanting to play defense that much. He kind of shocked me with those comments, saying he wanted to guard Michael.”
Let's face it, neither of them was going to stop him.

They should've just kicked MJ in his balls that would've worked.

Ehlo actually had good defense...it was a double-clutch jumper from beyond the free throw line

If you go back the play before Craig Ehlo to Mike to the rack! I always wonder the what IF's in that series!

Ehlo over pursued a little letting him get back to the middle of the court but a double clutch jumper going to the left with a hand in his face? It wasn't like the defense was terrible. Nance's attempt at a ball denial was probably worse.

What no one remembers is Ehlo hit an amazing shot just before(on MJ if I’m not mistaken). Poor dude just got caught guarding an amazing player making an amazing shot.

Jordan seems like a huge a-hole in this documentary. He was the fakest persona off all time in sports.

Nice guys finish last. Nothing wrong with being an ahole if you can back it up.
