Last Sunday, ESPN released the first two episodes of "The Last Dance" ⁠— the ten-part docuseries on the rise of Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan and the impact of his career in the league.

The documentary had been scheduled to air in June to coincide with the NBA season Finals this year. However, due to the premature cancellation of the NBA season due to the coronavirus pandemic, the series' release was moved up to this month.

The documentary is named "The Last Dance" after Phil Jackson ⁠— Chicago Bulls coach in Jordan's tenure ⁠— who used the same title to label the team's sixth battle for the NBA championship in the '97-'98 season.

Jackson had anticipated the team's split after that particular season, which was Jordan's final one with the Bulls. The team came out on top of the league to mark their sixth championship title in eight years.

ESPN added that the ten-part docuseries was made to provide an entertaining experience for everyone.

Forbes recently reported that the basketball hero would be getting 0$ for the docuseries, as all his proceeds are to be donated to charity.

Michael Jordan's profits are estimated to be between $3 million and $4million, and every penny of it has been dedicated to a charitable cause.

A rep for the six times NBA champion revealed the charity organization that would benefit from Jordan's generous gesture to be "Friends of Children." The rep went on described the organization as,

"a national non-profit that provides vulnerable children, ages 4-6, with professional mentors who stay with them from kindergarten through graduation."

A part of Jordan's donation towards charity was also disclosed to be directed towards "vetting additional Coronavirus-related causes." "The Last Dance" is promised by ESPN to cover "every chapter" of Michael Jordan's career.

It's said to follow the ace's breakout as the star of his high school basketball team, to his last season with Chicago Bulls, where the franchise had their "last dance" before splitting up.
