This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has been following along. “The Last Dance” has been putting up absolutely gigantic ratings since the first episode.
It’s not hard to understand why. The series chronicles Michael Jordan’s rise to the top of the NBA with the Chicago Bulls and it’s simply incredible.
Everything about the series is borderline pornographic for fans of sports.
Never before have fans had this much access to Jordan, his teammates, the Bulls during the 1990s and much more.
Every single episode, I’m hooked from the first moment and I can’t look away until it ends.
“Winning has a price…And leadership has a price.”
– Michael Jordan
The end of Episode 7 got my chili hot.
