To the delight of sports fans (and TV fans) who don't have ESPN Plus, docuseries The Last Dance about Michael Jordan and the 1997-8 Chicago Bulls has finally come to Netflix. And it's been pretty hilarious to watch—a whole new round of viewers have thoughts about the series and its portrayal of Jordan, the coach, the manager, and players Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman, a few months after the rest of the sports world watched it. Twitter was abuzz with renewed fervor about the not-uncontroversial series, and there were even some new ideas about what might have gone on behind the scenes. Also, fans just wanted more—a lot of people are rewatching the series and hoping a follow-up gets made. Here are the best reactions to The Last Dance, so far.
Already, fans love, love, love The Last Dance.

Started The Last Dance.

Finally watched The Last Dance. Fuck man, that is an outstanding series. The quality of it is only matched by Jordan’s ability to hold a grudge 😂

Is The last dance solely about Michael Jordan? I’m confused sksks cause the second episode is about scottie pippen for like 5 minutes, switches to MJ and then the third episode is about Dennis Rodman for like 5 minutes then switches back to MJ lmaooo I——

Watching "The Last Dance" and now I understand that Dennis Rodman was just a gen z kid born ahead of his time.

*Fully aware ESPN’s “The Last Dance” was an extensively researched and time consuming project that likely took years to be ready for air* Hey can y’all do another one of those I’m bored
