Jordan receives death threat

February 20, 1991|By Special to The Sun

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls' Michael Jordan received a telephoned death threat before last night's game against the Washington Bullets and was shadowed by a half-dozen plainclothes policemen throughout the night. They escorted him and his family into and out of Chicago Stadium. The call was placed to the Bulls' office.

"You can't ignore it," Jordan said after the game, "but I'm not going to let it bother me. I've got a job to do and I came to do it. Right now, I'll just go home and relax. I just don't understand it. I don't bother anybody. I'm just trying to live my life."
