Pull out a retro pair of Air Jordans, throw on a Bulls warmup jacket and pump the Alan Parsons Project through the speakers. «The Last Dance» is nearly at the finish line.
ESPN’s documentary series ended Episode 8 with a cliffhanger — well, at least for those who have never done any research on Michael Jordan’s career. The Bulls were last seen heading to the 1998 Eastern Conference finals, setting the stage for a heavyweight battle with the Pacers.
The final two episodes will cover that series as well as the Bulls’ championship matchup with the Jazz and the dissolution of one of the greatest dynasties in sports history. It will be fascinating to learn how the primary characters in this real-life drama felt about breaking up the team following a second three-peat.
