It seemed as if the entire internet was waiting on pins and needles — and “The Last Dance” delivered.The much-anticipated, 10-part, behind-the-scenes look at the final year of the Chicago Bulls dynasty unveiled its first two episodes on Sunday night, with fans, celebrities, NBA players past and present, and more all coming together to relive the waning days of Michael Jordan’s time in Chicago.And, just like you, they all loved what they saw:Michael Jordan’s Last Dance was fantastic and I loved all two hours of it!! THAT TEAM WOULD'VE WON TWO MORE.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) April 20, 2020Jordan roasting Jerry Krause gets funnier every time— Barstool Chicago (@barstoolchicago) April 20, 2020Through the first two hours, Krause became the closest thing “The Last Dance” had to an antagonist, despite the GM’s clear impact on Chicago’s six championships.Krause deserves his credit for building and putting the Bulls in position to win championships. He didn’t come to the Tar Heels fully formed, to be sure; instead, as his coaches and teammates recalled, he soaked up everything he could like a sponge, vowing to become the best player in UNC history:“… And he never frickin’ turned it off.” #CarolinaFamily #TheLastDance— Carolina Basketball (@UNC_Basketball) April 20, 2020HOFer James Worthy on when MJ joined UNC: "I was better than he was … for about 2 weeks."— NBA on ESPN (@ESPNNBA) April 20, 2020We’d say that was mission accomplished.Jordan famously hit the game winner to seal UNC’s 1982 championship as a freshman, and only got better from there, before declaring for the 1984 NBA Draft thanks in part to the advice of his coach, the legendary Dean Smith.Dean Smith telling Michael Jordan to go pro because that’s what was best for him, instead of telling him to stay which would have been best for Dean Smith. As Jordan tells it in “The Last Dance,” the Bulls team his rookie year was notorious for recreational drug use, particularly cocaine — and Jordan wanted no part of the “Chicago Cocaine Circus.”Instead, both culturally and on the court, Jordan made an immediate impact as a rookie.Michael Jordan as a rookie:▪️ 28.2 PPG, 6.5 RPG, 5.9 APG▪️ NBA All-Star▪️ Rookie of the Year#TheLastDance— NBA (@NBA) April 20, 2020Jordan's Bulls were an exclusive show 👀— ESPN (@espn) April 20, 2020As an aside, the internet loved how President Obama was referenced on the broadcast: “Former Chicago Resident”. Appropriately, then, Part 1 ended with the Bulls receiving their 1997 championship rings and turning the page to their final year … all with that iconic music playing.*Sirius by The Alan Parsons Project plays*Everyone:— SportsNation (@SportsNation) April 20, 2020Speaking of rings, Part 2 shifted its lens from Jordan to the man who most helped him win those six titles.In Jordan’s own words, “I didn’t win without Scottie Pippen. Whenever they speak Michael Jordan, they should speak Scottie Pippen."#TheLastDance on ESPN— NBA (@NBA) April 20, 2020Pippen starts as a manager…no scholarship…wills himself to being an All-Time great-It’s never easy if you want to be the best-— Lincoln Riley (@LincolnRiley) April 20, 2020Scottie was really the equipment manager at a D2 NAIA school. They will find you 🗣 #thelastdance— CJ McCollum (@CJMcCollum) April 20, 2020Pippen had matured into a sensational player in his own right, but he admitted in “The Last Dance” that he immediately recognized that Jordan was something special.The two formed a fast friendship that became the perfect, complementary relationship on the court.Mike from another planet lol… #TheLastDance … Pip slept on like a mf too smh— Damian Lillard (@Dame_Lillard) April 20, 2020I’m Glad MJ clarified that he needed Pippen and how important he was to his championships!!! He fought with his brother, Larry, both physically and for his father’s attention.For Michael, basketball was a way to earn that affection, since he wasn’t skilled at using tools and working alongside his father, who was employed by General Electric.Baby 🐐#TheLastDance— ESPN (@espn) April 20, 2020But, as you almost certainly know, Jordan failed to make his high school varsity basketball team as a sophomore, which further stoked that competitive flame.From that crucible, the Michael Jordan of lore started to take shape.Great parenting lesson #TheLastDance @Jumpman23 mom after getting cut…. It’s even worse than I remember.— Colin Cowherd (@ColinCowherd) April 20, 2020And that’s where the first night of “The Last Dance” left off — with Pippen furious at the team, Jordan trying to keep it all together in the pursuit of a sixth championship, and the entire internet waiting for Part 3, even though we know how this ultimately ends.
