The Dallas Mavericks and their fans are enjoying ‘The Last Dance’. Here are the player’s reactions to episodes five and six.
The Dallas Mavericks have not played basketball in nearly two months at this point. The NBA suspended play on March 11. They are still formulating a plan on their comeback.
Basketball fans worldwide have been captivated by The Last Dance. The documentary is centered on Michael Jordan and 1998 Chicago Bulls. It is an experience for everyone. ESPN airs two episodes every Sunday. We are all watching together. Some are hearing the story for the first time. Others get the chance to relive the GOAT from a different perspective.
Dallas Mavericks players have been watching and reacting to the episodes on social media. Here is what they had to say about episodes five and six which aired on May 3.
Boban posts tribute to MJ
The documentary is important for sports fans right now. It gives us an outlet and something to enjoy together live.
Brunson thinking back
Jalen Brunson was also watching the episodes. He tweeted this midway through Sunday’s episode.
Brunson was a teenager enjoying that video game. The documentary is a trip down memory lane. It shows clips from the big games in all six of MJ’s championship runs. Fans also get the perspective from his opponents years after the games. It is cool to see.
Luka gets some love
The opening of episode five centered on the 1998 All-Star game. Michael Jordan was in his final one as a Bull. 19-year-old Kobe Bryant was in his first. The two went head-to-head in that game. The episode was dedicated to Kobe who tragically passed away in January.
That episode spurred Basketball-Reference to post the following tweet.
Luka Doncic is the highest teenage point per-minute scorer in NBA history. Just one more record on the growing total for the Dallas Mavericks star. Doncic signed with Jordan Brand in December. One can bet he is enjoying the documentary back in Slovenia.
