Pearl Jam in “The Last Dance”?

Thought I’d mention, apologies if already brought up. I was listening to the latest Bill Simmons podcast, which had an interview with the producer of the new Bulls/MJ documentary. Towards the end of the interview, the producer said one of Bill’s favorite bands makes a surprise appearance at the very end of episode 10. 
I would guess this is Pearl Jam performing Black, Red, and Yellow.

    I know Ed sang the national anthem at the Finals two years earlier.

    Mullin recalls the night in the early 1990s, when he was with the Warriors and Rodman was with the Spurs, that resulted in a brief but memorable car ride.

    Hanging around the home locker room at the Oakland Arena, Rodman asked Mullin if he could hitch a ride to the team hotel, the Oakland Airport Hilton. No problem, according to Mullin, who lived in Alameda at the time.

    One more thing. Rodman wondered if it was OK for a couple of his “buddies” to ride along. Just hang on, Mullin until I’m ready to leave.

    “I had young kids then, so I had to move a couple car seats,” Mullin recalls. “No big deal. So, all these little white guys pile into my car. I’m like, whatever. It’s a five-minute ride. I was going to Alameda, so it was a short ride.

    "Later, on, I find out it was Pearl Jam. At the time, they were called Mookie Blaylock. It was that group. They were (Rodman’s) boys back then.

    Some years later, shortly after Mullin retired, he got a call from Brent Barry, who was playing for the SuperSonics. Barry had become friends with Pearl Jam, which originated in Seattle as Mookie Blaylock, with 5-foot-7 Eddie Vedder as the lead singer.

    “Brent says he with Eddie Vedder,” Mullin says. “I said, ‘Dude, ask him if I ever gave him a ride back to the hotel' [Vedder] said, ‘Yeah, that was us.’

    “But that’s Dennis. That’s how he is. He was just a regular dude. And still is.”

    Cool story, but I think Mullin is a little confused on the timing.  Rodman wasn't on the Spurs until 1993 and they didn't play at Golden State until January 1994... so he wasn't in the car with Mookie Blaylock.  But still cool.

    He definitely played in Oakland with the Pistons.  But I don't recall any connection between Rodman and Pearl Jam at the very beginning when they were Mookie Blaylock.  Seems unlikely.

    Just curious....I thought maybe Mullins just got the team wrong.

    Jeff confirmed in print (https://www.slamonline.com/nba/one-on-one/) that he didn't meet Rodman until he was playing with the Spurs: "I first met him in early January before a Nuggets game in Denver. Perhaps my biggest surprise was his love of Pearl Jam."   That would have been the game on January 7, 1994 - https://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/199401070DEN.html

    I guess its possible Jeff wasn't in on the car ride with Mullin way back when they were known as Mookie Blaylock, but it seems unlikely.  I'm just guessing Mullin is fuzzy on the details.  Still a cool story.

    yeah but you are right that the details don't match....I saw that article pop up on NBC news and a quick fact check blows it out of the water as written.

    Yeah, once I posted the article, it made me look up when Rodman played with the Spurs. When I found out, I knew there was no way he gave a ride to "Mookie Blaylock".
  • bootlegger10bootlegger10 Posts: 12,978
    I would doubt that Dennis was hanging with the band before their first record was ever released.  Hence, the mookie blaylock part of the story doesn’t make sense.
  • bedybedybedybedy Posts: 2
    Yeah, nice story but the timing didn't make sense. I was already a deeply entrenched PJ fan when Rodman came along. I'm not much of a hoops fan so I always wished he would stop interrupting when he showed up but I have to respect his respect for their music because they pulled me out of an abyss as well.
