Time to Re-Watch The Last Dance, Bulls Broadcast Team, LaVine’s Three, and Other Bulls Bullets

Chicago Bulls


And until then, I know what I’ll be doing …


•   I fully plan to rewatch the entire series in order, but with each episode now at my disposal, perhaps I’ll start with my favorite episode … that is, if I can figure out which one is my favorite. The second half of the doc certainly received the most praise, and rightfully so. In my opinion, Episode 7 was probably the most well put together – especially where the story of Jordan’s father, retirement, and attitude were all covered in detail. I think what made this episode stand out among the rest was the fact that it took Jordan (for the most part) off the basketball court. He opened about parts of his career he hadn’t necessarily addressed in the past, and arguably the best part of the entire docuseries exposed itself in this moment. At the end of Episode 7, Jordan talked about the way he treated his teammates, and in the midst of discussing his competitive edge, we watched him on the verge of tears. I wrote about it at the time, but I think that moment told us everything we needed to know about Jordan. Even if you found someone who’s lived under a rock for their entire life and never heard of this MJ guy, they could watch that brief clip and understand so much about him.

•   After writing that above bullet, I went to rewatch the last two minutes of Episode 7, which then put me on the track of rewatching the last two minutes of practically every episode. I got goosebumps every time. I’ve watched a handful of sports docs in my day, and while I’m not about to say this 10-part series was the best, I will say it had some of the most elite editing I’ve seen. I know some folks were put off by how often each episode jumped between years, but keep in mind they had 14-years worth of storylines to cover. It’s so impressive to see how much they addressed and how palatable they made it feel.

•   The sweet serenade of Adam Amin:

•   As I’ve said before, I think the Bulls made a great hire with Amin. The guy is certainly an up-and-comer in the industry, and he seems to fit perfectly with this reinvention the team is going through. I can’t wait to hear him call his first official game as the voice of the Bulls next season.

•   Some discredited LaVine’s participation in the 3-point contest this season, but it was totally warranted.

•   To drive that point home, I’ll just leave these here for some Sunday viewing:

•   You took the words right out of my mouth …

•   I’ve had a couple of dreams about Boylen over the last few months. I 10/10 don’t recommend it. You’ll wake up hella pissed off.

•   One of my all-time favorites and a true inspiration.
