The 1997-98 NBA season marked the end of an era. Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls embarked on the final season of their dynasty.
Phil Jackson and The Bulls confirmed that it would be the coach’s final season with the team, with Jackson even naming the run “The Last Dance.” Jordan said he wouldn’t play for any other coach. The Coach decided to allowe cameras to follow the team around, documenting every move, every fight, every ounce of drama surrounding the final season of the team.
ESPN’s 10-part documentary “The Last Dance,” which begins airing tonight (Sunday) night, is expected to show everything you ever wanted to know about Jordan and the Bulls, the greatest team in NBA history. Spoiler: The team wins the NBA title at the end. But it was one hell of a journey getting there.
“The Last Dance” was originally set to air this summer. However, thanks to the coronavirus, ESPN is dropping it early.
ESPN will air new episodes of “The Last Dance,” back-to-back, at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. EST Sunday nights. If you have a cable, the viewing experience is easy. Just tune into ESPN.
For those without cable, the episodes will hit the ESPN app right after they air. Outside the U.S., “The Last Dance” episodes will move to Netflix on the Mondays after they air.
For those without cable who want to watch live and tweet you can sign up for Hulu + Live TV or YouTube TV, as well as Sling TV. Some offer free trials, including Hulu + Live TV (if you’re already a Hulu subscriber). But none will get you all the through the five week airing of “The Last Dance.”
