Michael Jordan ’30 For 30′ Will Be 10 Hours Long and That’s Not Enough
The 30 for 30 titled “The Last Dance" debuts on Netflix in 2019. The documentary will focus on Micheal Jordan, the Bulls dynasty, and more specifically, their final title run during the 1997-'98 season. The ten episode series will feature never seen footage and interviews.
It's time for a reminder of how lucky some of us were to see Michael Jordan play basketball. That's really oversimplifying things, what he did was dominate the NBA from '90-'93 and from '95-'98.
He played 15 years in the league, but for those 6 seasons, he was unbeatable. In my lifetime, I've never seen an athlete in any sport who was as superior as Michael Jordan. He was leaps and bounds better than the best player on every other team.
Michael Jordan wrote the formula on competition in pro sports. When you watch Tom Brady, or any dominant athlete, speak about their approach to winning, you are getting "cliff notes" from the MJ book. The things Jordan did and said during his career are now sports cliches. "The first to work, the last to leave," "He makes everyone around him better," "Competitive in everything he does," the list goes on and on.
Micheal Jordan is the best that ever played the game. Don't mention Lebron, I don't want to hear it. Go lie down, the grown ups are talking. Jordan has six rings and could have had more had he not taken off prime years to shag fly balls for the White Sox farm system. Lebron did not play against Magic, Bird, and Isiah. Also, every time Lebron wants more help, he can get it, he is, after all, the GM and coach. If you believe Lebron James is better than Michael Jordan, you either did not see Michael play or you have a short memory.
Is 10 hours for the documentary too much? No, it's not enough. They could do a season on Netflix for every year in the league, and I'm not even kidding. I'd say "take my money," but Netflix already has it.
