The opening four episodes of the documentary shed light on several key moments in Michael Jordan's career. Revolving mostly around the 1997/98 Chicago Bulls season, The Last Dance highlights Jordan's epic rise with the University of North Carolina before he was drafted by the Bulls in the 1984 draft as the No. 3 overall pick. We also see Bulls former GM Jerry Krause portrayed as the decisive figure behind the dismantling of the Bulls dynasty. The importance of the likes of Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman in establishing the Bulls' legacy also plays a big part in the opening four episodes.
The Last Dance episodes 5 and 6 is expected to take a look at Phil Jackson and his final year as Bulls head coach. His relationship with the Bulls roster and especially Michael Jordan will be the key storyline in the upcoming episodes. One of the two upcoming episodes is also expected to be an emotional affair as the late Kobe Bryant is set to feature and discuss his rivalry with the Bulls legend.
Both players were known to be very close and Jordan was known to have considered Kobe Bryant as his little brother. From their first meeting on the court to their budding relationship, The Last Dance is believed to explore the off-camera relationship between the duo.
