Sports fans around the world are coming together to watch the new Michael Jordan documentary titled “The Last Dance”. This documentary was originally supposed to be released on a special network at a later date, but because of the coronavirus ESPN decided to release it early and for everyone to see. In total there are ten episodes and the first four have already been aired and two more get released every Sunday.


“The Last Dance” focuses on the 1997 to 1998 basketball season for the Chicago Bulls which was Jordan’s last year with the team. So far the first few episodes showed Jordan’s backstory as well as other players on the team and the head coach. During his last season with the bulls, Jordan and the team hired a camera crew to film everything that happened during that season. This documentary has been in the making for 20 years and is showing never before seen footage of Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. 


Not only sports fans, but other athletes and celebrities are showing high praise for this documentary. Jamal Crawford tweeted, “Man, two hours has never went by so fast, lol.” Tamika Catchings tweeted, “ Noooooooo I don’t WANT to wait till next week. I literally pounded the floor LOL.” Zach Levine also tweeted, “I could’ve watched all ten episodes right now.” The show has a 4.9 out of 5 star rating and has taken over the internet.
