“The last dance” is a 10 episodes documentary revolving around one of the greatest sports teams of all time – The 90’s Chicago Bulls and their last championship run with arguably the best player of all time – Michael Jordan. Every week Netflix and ESPN will air 2 episodes.
The first two episodes brought up multiple interesting topics, one of the was the construction and the split up of this 97′-98′ Chicago Bulls by their general manager Jerry Krause. His famous quote – “Players and coaches don’t win championships, organizations do”, drew much attention Sunday night as it drew over 20 years ago.
Current NBA players reacted to it –
Jerry Krause said organizations win championships, not players that organization hasn’t won a championship since ??♂️— Darius Miles (@21Blackking) April 20, 2020
Wow! I didn’t know much about Jerry Krause and the backstory for this season! Forgive me I was only 5 years old in 1997!— Cody Zeller (@CodyZeller) April 20, 2020
Another key aspect that was discussed on the first two episodes is Scottie Pippen’s relationship with the management and the fact that Scottie was under paid and under appreciated. At some point he also demanded a trade and said he will never play for the Bulls again.
