During Tim Grover's recent episode on Barstool Sports' Pardon My Take podcast, he discusses the Michael Jordan food poisoning story. He explains how he got a call asking him to come to Jordan's room in the middle of the night. Jordan was apparently lying in a fetal position. Grover was convinced it was food poisoning as 'there were no signs of flu, anything, being sick before that'.
