The Last Dance, the 10-part documentary series on Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and the Chicago Bulls during the 1997-98 season, will be released on Sunday, April 19.
The documentary was scheduled to be released in June, but with no sports on because of COVID-19, ESPN decided to release it early.
During an interview with Rachel Nichols of ESPN, Pippen talked about what it was like having cameras follow the Bulls the entire 1997-98 season:
“Well, I mean it was awesome Rachel,” Scottie Pippen said. “For me, it was really everything coming to a head for us. A great run through the 90s. Dennis [Rodman] had came and joined us the second half of that run. That part was really the more special part because we were the best team in basketball for a long time and no one knocked us off.
“So, knowing that was the end of our run and that we had to end it that way. We made it very special and we wanted to end it with a championship.”
The Bulls won six championships in the 90s. They went 6-0, defeating the Los Angeles Lakers, Portland Trail Blazers, Phoenix Suns, Utah Jazz twice and Seattle SuperSonics.
Jordan won all six Finals MVPs, but we can’t forget just how special Pippen was for the Bulls as well. The Hall of Famer averaged 19.6 points, 7.2 rebounds and 5.9 assists for the Bulls from 1990-1998.
Sports fans can’t wait for The Last Dance to come out later this month. It’s going to be epic.
