According to Barstool Sports, The Athletic reported that Jordan asked for a break while filming the documentary because he “so emotional, near tears, that he has to get away for a moment.”

The moment has also reportedly been kept in the documentary!

This documentary is going to be absolutely incredible and I can’t wait to watch. We’re talking about one of the greatest dynasties in the history of sports.

On top of that, Jordan had a competitive fire that is hard to put into words. There probably aren’t more than five athletes on the planet capable of matching his intensity.

He had a drive in his heart that forced him to be the best player in the game during his time, and it led to six rings with the Chicago Bulls.

Now, basketball fans around the world will get to see how it all came to be when “The Last Dance” is released April 19.

It should be a hell of a fun time!
