Release date for "The Last Dance" moved up!!


ESPN and ABC heard the fans and pushed forward with the most awaited documentary in NBA history. According to the New York Post's Andrew Marchand, "The Last Dance" will start airing on April 19!! We got a first taste of the 10 part documentary in December.

The same way he changed the shoe industry, Jordan had the foresight to set up a film crew that had full access to the Bulls in his last season with the team. The documentary features never-before-seen footage and sound from the 1997-98 championship season and interviews with legends from all walks of life. Basketball legends such as Phil Jackson, Scottie Pippen, Steve Kerr, Charles Barkley and Kobe Bryant, to fans like Barack Obama, will talk about one of the most fascinating NBA seasons ever. According to reports, the plan is to air two episodes every weekend for five weeks in a row.

Feeling he was too young for the role, he let it sit in his office for over a decade before deciding the time was right. "The Unforgiven" is considered to be one of the best movies in his career and earned him the Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director.

We do not doubt that "The Last Dance" will be worth the wait, with over 20 years of distance to get perspective on how great winning the 6th title in eight years was, and the mental and physical effort it took to get it done. More than a peak, we are getting a front-row seat behind the curtain. Set your timers for April 19th.
