'The Last Dance' docu-series has been the talk of the town ever since the release of the first episode on April 19. The story of the 10-part docuseries revolves around NBA legend Michael Jordan and his final season with Eastern Conference giants Chicago Bulls and megastar Amitabh Bachchan is the new fan of the series as he talks about it in his blog.

Bachchan spoke about NBA legend Michael Jordan and said, "‘The Last Dance’ of Jordan .. Air Jordan .. Michael Jordan reserves immense say in the grit and incentive laden thought and practice brought upon by the sportsman .. of initial question .. of work to perfect the craft .. of the selection management .. of victory and defeat and victory again .. of the criticism and abuse .. of the grandeur of praise and following"

Amitabh Bachchan spoke how easy it is to talk ill of the 'man' but there will never be someone like him. He wrote, "Of taking away the important feel from the ‘man’ .. they that swipe at him that deflate him, with ineffectiveness and unsolicited abuse .. for them a word ..‘they say so because they cannot be HIM, that is why they say it ..’"

The Last Dance ratings jump to 5.6 million viewers on average as Jordan's series winds up

".. be him first , for a day , a week , a month a year .. live his life and then bring on what needs to be thrown at him .. you will question only .. for, the answers are not your territory .. never will be .. cannot be .. you shall ever have questions only, because that is ALL that you have .. become him first .. become his stature .. become his calling , his generated love of his work and tact .. 

THEN .. then lets us see if you are able to answer .. you cannot .. because YOU ARE NOT HIM .. AND NEVER WILL BE .. !!

They are that 1 in the 7.8 billion .. try becoming that first .." Bachchan wrote.
