The ’90s Bulls are one of the most electric teams of all time. Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, Steve Kerr, and others all contributed on a Bulls 3-peat. You might know some of these players, maybe not all but one name you know for sure, Michael Jordan. As one of the best players to ever play the game, you wouldn’t be shocked if I told you that ESPN was doing a documentary about it.

You also wouldn’t be shocked on how many people’s lives “The Last Dance” has impacted and how many people had views on it from Barack Obama to Kobe Bryant.  The documentary was about all the challenges and struggles they had to overcome and the players — how they lived in a life of fame and how Michael Jordan handled everyone wanting to meet him.

Michael Jordan and the Bulls were a dynasty led by coach Phil Jackson. I would get this documentary 4.5/5 stars. It was an overall great documentary, but the only thing I would recommend is a little more interviewing. This was a highly anticipated documentary, and it’s not disappointing. Fellow critics agree that this is a documentary that we’ve been waiting for a long time. It finally came, and it did not disappoint.

 For sports documentaries this has a lot of drama. People never knew the background and what went on behind the scenes on this team. They thought it was just perfect because all you see on the court was nothing compared to what happened behind the scenes. Dennis Rodman left on vacation and went to Vegas during the season. This is unheard of in modern-day playing and back then you don’t see other players do this, but Steve Kerr said to get the best out of him you had to give him a little rope. That’s exactly what they did, and it helped them win another championship. 

This is an overall good documentary, and I recommend to anyone who wants to learn about the ’90s Bulls and likes a little bit of drama.
