The Last Dance did extremely well to tie Michael Jordan's legendary NBA career to some of his personal anecdotes. From his relationship with the likes of Phil Jackson, Scottie Pippen to some controversial incidents like his issues with gambling, the documentary explored several unheard stories. Eight episodes of the 10-part-docu-series have already been released and so far it has been well received by fans and experts.
Aside from the regular followers of the NBA, celebrities and athletes from other sports have also enjoyed reliving Michael Jordan's career with the Bulls.

Eminem wore a blue Pistons shirt with his trademark hoodie and even performed a verse from his Oscar-winning song Lose Yourself.
He then moved to a courtside seat alongside manager Paul Rosenberg and producer Denaun Porter to watch the Pistons facing the Charlotte Hornets. Pistons are also known to be using Eminem's tracks during NBA games from time to time.
Blake Griffin is introduced in the Pistons’ starting line up. Their playoff intros are set to Eminem’s ‘Til I collapse.
