Posted On May 26, 2020
CHICAGO, IL — There have not been many positives in the world of sports during the coronavirus pandemic in the United States, but ESPN’s choice to push up the release date of the 10-part Michael Jordan documentary “The Last Dance” has been a shining light in an otherwise barren landscape.

ESPN is airing the final two episodes of the hit series on Sunday night, which has chronicled Jordan and the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls’ championship season.
The series features never-before-seen footage from a camera crew that was allowed to follow Jordan and the Bulls during the 1997-98 year. Additionally, the documentary has given a rare insight into the usually guarded Jordan and provided viewers with interviews from some of the biggest names in NBA history.
Here’s what you need to know about the finale of “The Last Dance.”
How To Watch
You can also catch the re-air of Episode 7 at 7 p.m. and Episode 8 at 8 p.m. on ESPN. Censored versions of each episode will air on ESPN2 simultaneously.
What To Expect
A handful of famous moments have been teased for the upcoming episodes, including the following:
The “Flu Game”
There might be no moment more encapsulating of Jordan’s greatness than his performance in a Game 5 victory during the 1997 Finals against the Utah Jazz. The Bull’s shooting guard actually had a bad case of food poisoning, despite the famous reference to the flu. Jordan was able to play through the pain and drop 38 points against Karl Malone and John Stockton.
Michael Jordan vs. Reggie Miller
Jordan and Miller did not like each other on the basketball court. The Bulls and Indianapolis Pacers went to battle in the 1998 Eastern Conference finals, and the seven-game matchup is still considered one of the best playoff series in history.
Steve Kerr For The Win
Most fans today know Kerr as the championship winning coach for the Golden State Warriors, but back in his playing days he won three NBA titles with the Bulls. Kerr’s biggest moment with Chicago took place in Game 6 of the 1997 Finals, when the point guard hit a championship clinching jump shot after the Jazz doubled-teamed Jordan on the final play.
