In anticipation of the premiere of ‘The Last Dance,’ we rank the top five guests that we expect to see in the documentary centered around Michael Jordan.

Sports fans are starving for content right now. Although watching old games has been great for learning about the history of the game, mourning the loss of Kobe Bryant by watching his old games and reliving many other of our favorite players’ greatest performances…nothing can replace the feeling of live sports and finding out when and how the next historic chapter or moment in sports history will occur.

The hope of ‘The Last Dance’ documentary is that it will become a cultural phenomenon captivating the nation beyond just sport.

This would make sense as Michael Jordan was a cultural icon who transcended sport as, “wanting to be like Mike,” became part of our global lexicon forever. Michael Jordan’s entire career was epic, but with Phil Jackson saying this would be his last season coaching the Chicago Bulls and Jordan saying he wouldn’t play for another coach beside Phil Jackson as Jordan’s Bulls were coming off their fifth championship win of the decade, this specific chapter would have been the best to document… and now we know they were smart enough to do so.

On April 19th at 9:00 p.m. ET, ESPN will begin airing two episodes per week, with the episodes also being released on Netflix the day after airing, of an epic 10-part docuseries detailing the final season of arguably the most famous dynasty in sports history, Michael Jordan’s 1990s Chicago Bulls.

This docuseries specifically focuses on unseen footage from the entire 1998 season which culminated with Jordan playing his last game in a Chicago Bulls uniform, a sixth championship and one of the most iconic plays in sports history as Jordan hit a game-winner to clinch the championship.

This documentary features a plethora of exciting guests spanning music, politics, sports media, the NBA and more, but this article will focus on the top five guests you should be most excited to watch speak in this once-in-a-lifetime chronicle of the most fascinating season by a player many refer to as the GOAT (greatest of all-time).
