Dallas Mavericks players react to “The Last Dance”
Dallas Mavericks players were watching “The Last Dance” on Sunday night with basketball everywhere. Here is a look at their reactions.
The Dallas Mavericks have not played basketball in over six weeks. The NBA suspended play on March 11, and there is no end in sight. The novel coronavirus is controlling the decisions. The league is waiting for it to play out to see if the remainder of the season can be salvaged.
With no games and live sports everywhere on pause, The Last Dance is taking center stage. The documentary on Michael Jordan and the 1998 Chicago Bulls is must-watch television every Sunday night. For some, it is a history lesson on just how otherworldly MJ was. Others are re-living that 1990s era.
Episodes three and four aired on April 26. The focus was Dennis Rodman, Phil Jackson, and the Bulls building to their first championship. There was much talk about the “Bad Boys” Pistons. They were the team standing in the way of Jordan’s Bulls winning their first championship.
Hopefully, you caught the episodes. Here is a look at how current Mavericks players were reacting to the documentary.
Brunson on Rodman in Vegas
The end of episode three discusses Dennis Rodman asking to go on vacation to Las Vegas during the season. Jackson and Jordan grant his request. The crew shows some footage of Rodman enjoying himself in Vegas. Here is Jalen Brunson’s reaction to that.
It was certainly a different time in the 90s. Brunson’s reaction was comical.
The documentary told the backstory of how Phil Jackson became the Bulls head coach. It discussed him spending time in Puerto Rico before coming to the NBA. Barea retweeted the clip which can be seen here.
Dallas Mavericks supporters can bet that the players were tuned in on Sunday night. Tim Hardaway Jr. talked about his excitement to watch the first two episodes during his NBA Live Together chat with his father. Luka Doncic is a Jordan Brand athlete and has been tweeting about the documentary.
Hopefully, you are enjoying it too. Please, be safe and try to stay healthy. Wishing you the best.
