NBA players react to emotional Episodes 7 and 8 of ‘The last Dance’


We were once again treated with what has recently become one of the highlights of our week on Sunday night, as ESPN and Netflix aired episodes 7 and 8 of “The Last Dance” focusing on Michael Jordan and the final season of the Chicago Bulls dynasty. As usual, even the biggest NBA stars were one with us in watching Sunday’s double-header, and below are some of their best reactions from social media.

One of the main talking points of the episodes centered around the NBA legend’s deceased father, James, who was murdered in a carjacking incident back in 1993. Quentin Richardson commented on James’ connection with the fans.

Former Bulls All-Star guard B.J. Armstrong, who found himself on the opposing side when the Bulls faced the Charlotte Hornets in the 1998 NBA Playoffs, had a lot of things to say during the show. His bit also garnered quite a number of reactions all around.


The infamous fight between current Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr and the NBA GOAT was also featured in the episodes, and as expected, this too got a lot of people talking — including one of Kerr’s Dubs players, Eric Paschall.

After a year in hiatus, Jordan made his triumphant return to the game he loved. This was one of the most emotional moments of Sunday’s episodes, and the reactions from the players are testament to this.

In the end, our level of respect and admiration for the great Michael Jordan was once again raised to another level. For Kendrick Perkins, though, the one-time NBA champ expressed his worry about the series coming to an end.


Us too, Perk. Us too.
