The Last Dance was a huge hit for ESPN. It’s now streaming on Netflix, giving Bulls and basketball fans around the world even more access to the thrilling 10-part documentary directed by Jason Heir.
The ’90s Bulls are one of the best sports dynasties ever. Led by Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Phil Jackson, Chicago won six titles in eight years. The Bulls defeated the Los Angeles Lakers, Portland Trail Blazers and Phoenix Suns for their first three-peat. Jordan and Co. then got the best of the Seattle SuperSonics and Utah Jazz twice for the second three-peat.
Who knows how many championships Jordan and the Bulls could have won if MJ didn’t retire in 1993-94 to play baseball and Chicago general manager Jerry Krause didn’t try and break up the dynasty after the sixth title in 1997-98.
Jordan, arguably the greatest basketball player ever, finished his NBA career with averages of 30.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists in 1,072 regular-season games with the Bulls and Washington Wizards. He won five MVPs with the Bulls and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2009.
