MAGIC JOHNSON ON MICHAEL JORDAN'S LEGACY

Earvin "Magic" Johnson, played against Jordan for many years. He's earned his own place atop his team's Hall of Fame, and that made him credible enough to be a part of the documentary. Of course, he made sure to promote it on social media, where he let people know that Michael Jordan is one of his top three entertainers of all time. 

The team allowed an NBA entertainment crew to follow them around the entire season, and never-before-seen fotage is set to be released on the film.

"THE LAST DANCE" DOCUMENTARY

"The Last Dance" was released on ESPN on April 19, and Netflix is releasing it on a two-episode weekly basis. So far, it has gotten nothing but rave reviews, as it tackles just how determined Jordan was to become the greatest basketball player in the world. 

It also touches on his teammates, particularly those who have truly made an impact in his life and are considered his links to achieving six rings with the Chicago Bulls. It also shows his relationships with the Bulls management, particularly its then-General Manager, Jerry Krause, and their coach, Phil Jackson. 

REMEMBERING THE 1997-1998 CHICAGO BULLS

During their last year together as the power-packed team that they were, particularly in the 1997 to 1998 season, the team allowed an NBA entertainment crew to follow them around the entire season, and never-before-seen footage is set to be released on the film. 

The documentary also shows testaments from people who have watched Jordan on the sidelines through the years, including management staff, former teammates, former opponents, sportscasters, and even former president and Chicago resident Barack Obama.
