Michael Jordan is arguably the greatest basketball player that ever played the game. A six-time NBA champion, six-time Finals MVP, a 14x NBA All-Star, Olympic medalist, philanthropist, and entrepreneur, Jordan definitely set the bar and inspired future NBA stars to strive to be like him and even more.
Jordan inspired a whole generation of future NBA superstars and pioneered the blueprint in how to be an outstanding athlete. One of those NBA superstars that modeled himself after Jordan was the late great, Kobe Bryant, whom Jordan had faced in Dec 1997 in that epic battle when the Lakers came to Chicago.
Back in December of 2019, ESPN released a trailer for a new documentary about Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls called The Last Dance.
This past Sunday, ESPN released the first two episodes of the new 10-part miniseries.
In the first two episodes, the documentary begins with details of the 97-98 NBA season as the Chicago Bulls were on their way to capturing their sixth championship, facing off against the Utah Jazz.
The documentary also details Michael Jordan’s journey to the 1985 Draft, teaming up with Scottie Pippen in 1987 and his first NBA championship in 1991. The episodes also details the relationship between Jordan and his teammates and the relationship he had with Jerry Krause, the former Chicago Bulls GM.
The episodes showed the way Michael Jordan responded to game losses, feuds with other NBA players and his relationship with coach Phil Jackson.
As I watched the first two episodes, what I found most interesting about this miniseries is the mentality that Michael Jordan had in the midst of all the controversy behind the scenes. His relationship with the media, the Bulls GM office, his teammates in the Bulls locker room and others. Overall, it was a good first two episodes.
What are your thoughts? Are you guys ready for the next episode? I know I am !
