Looking back at the top five moments from ESPN’s “The Last Dance” documentary centered around Michael Jordan’s final season with the Chicago Bulls.

It’s only fitting that the man people refer to as the greatest player of all-time gets arguably the greatest docuseries of all-time with rave reviews from seemingly everyone and a 97 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes, which amalgamates positive reviews. This series was entitled, “The Last Dance”, which is the name Phil Jackson made for Michael Jordan’s final season as a Chicago Bull in which he completed his second three-peat winning his sixth championship of the decade and third straight since coming out of retirement.

The Last Dance is littered with memorable moments throughout like Dennis Rodman’s mid-season trip to Las Vegas, Michael Jordan scoring 38 points with food poisoning (originally known as the flu game), Scottie Pippen finally getting his due as one of the greatest players of all-time in his own right rather than just a sidekick and plenty of incredible basketball highlights set to music such as Michael Jordan scoring an all-time playoff-high 63 points against Larry Bird and the Boston Celtics in 1986 with LL Cool J’s ‘86 hit, “Bad” playing in the background.

There are a plethora of moments that could be included on this list, but only the five best moments to watch unfold in the docuseries will be included. ESPN and Netflix’s 10 episode masterpiece kept getting better at such a quick rate that the fifth-best moment was altered as Dennis Rodman somehow managed to outdo his Vegas trip in the middle of the season with an even wilder antics.

Let’s take a look back at the top 5 moments from “The Last Dance” documentary.
