The Last Dance docuseries about Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls captivated NBA fans during the summer when there was no sports to watch due to COVID-19.

The Emmy awarding-winning doc is now releasing some unreleased scenes, and Bulls fans are going to love the latest one.

In an interview with the late Stuart Scott of ESPN, Jordan talked about his motivation to win his sixth title during the 1997-98 season.

Michael Jordan and the Bulls wound up winning the 1998 title over the Utah Jazz in six games, with MJ capturing his sixth Finals MVP award. His Airness briefly retired after that championship, ending his legendary career with the franchise.

The Last Dance docuseries didn’t talk about Jordan’s two seasons with the Washington Wizards in 2001-02 and 2002-03. The Bulls icon wanted to keep the doc about his Chicago days.

As everyone knows, Jordan is universally recognized as the greatest player in NBA history. MJ averaged 30.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists with the Bulls and Wizards.

Along with his six titles and six Finals MVPs, Jordan won five MVP awards in the regular season and is one of three players in NBA history to win MVP and Defensive Player of the Year in the same season.

The Bulls haven’t been back to the Finals since the Jordan era ended. The team got close in 2011 when Derrick Rose won the MVP award and led Chicago to the best record in the NBA.

However, the Bulls lost to the Miami Heat in the 2011 Eastern Conference Finals in five games.
