Four episodes into the documentary, “The Last Dance” has lived up to the hype.
Last weekend, we got a glimpse into the bitter rivalry between Michael Jordan’s Bulls and the “Bad Boy” Detroit Pistons.
Dennis Rodman, the fiery, flashy, combustible member of the Bulls, was profiled, and his infamous Las Vegas vacation was arguably the highlight of episodes 3 and 4.
This weekend, in episodes 5 and 6, the 1998 Eastern Conference finals between the Bulls and Indiana Pacers will be featured.
The 1997-98 season was Chris Mullin’s first away from the Warriors after being traded to Indiana for Erick Dampier and Duane Ferrell.
In a story written by ESPN’s Zach Lowe, Mullin recalled how the Bulls put Scottie Pippen on Pacers point guard Mark Jackson to neutralize him in Game 7.
“Scottie was beating the s–t out of Mark the whole way up the court,” Mullin said. “That was legal then. Game 7 was like a UFC match.”
We can’t wait for this Sunday’s episodes.
