Michael Jordan Documentary to Debut This Sunday (4/19)
No live sports? No problem. Well... sort of. We all want live sports right now, but unfortunately that ain't happening. We do have a documentary about Michael Jordan coming to ESPN though.
The Last Dance is a 10-part documentary that will give us a look at the GOAT like never before. Jordan and the Bulls championship team from 1997-98 allowed an NBA entertainment crew to follow them that season. ESPN also spoke to more than 100 people who were close that team and personnel during that run.
Check out this trailer to get yourself excited.
Jordan has come out and said he thinks that The Last Dance will make people think he's a horrible guy, saying:
When you see the footage of [me riding with Scott Burrell], you're going to think that I'm a horrible guy. But you have to realize that the reason why I was treating him like that is because I needed him to be tough in the playoffs and we're facing the Indiana's and Miami's and New York's in the Eastern Conference. He needed to be tough and I needed to know that I could count on him. And those are the kind of things where people see me acting the way I acted in practice, they're not going to understand it.
Here in the US, The Last Dance will air on ESPN.
