When Kanye West played in his hometown of Chicago, he blamed the Bulls for “allowing” Michael Jordan to ever play for the Washington Wizards.

Kanye West is a big Michael Jordan fan, but he’s apparently still sore about the way the NBA legend’s career ended with the Chicago Bulls.

At his “Yeezus” show in Chicago’s United Center this week, West added in a special tribute to his NBA hero, harping on his main point: “We should’ve never ever let Michael Jordan play for the Wizards.”

After retiring in 1999, Jordan returned to the league a year later as part owner of the Washington Wizards – a team he’d suit up for in 2001.

“Why did that happen?” West chanted.

The rapper blamed Bulls ownership for their decision.

“When a player that made the NBA wants to become an owner of the team that he brought so much glory to, a team he brought so much story to/a team that has his statue in the front of the m———ing building/But do you know what the owners of that team told MJ? You’re just a player, homeboy,” West sang.

“Til I die, MJ represents the Bulls,” West finished.
