The Bulls owner once asked Michael Jordan in regards to the risk of playing with an injury, “If you had a terrible headache and I gave you a bottle of pills and 9 of the pills would cure you and 1 of the pills would kill you — would you take a pill?”— Good Morning America (@GMA) April 16, 2020

Each of the ten episodes of the documentary will be approximately 60 minutes long. Jordan's journey with the Bulls will be shown to viewers, though his last season with the team will remain the focus. The Last Dance will also reportedly feature anecdotes and interviews from various people who have interacted with Jordan over the years. Former US President Barack Obama, late NBA legend Kobe Bryant and Steve Kerr are few of the people whose interviews about Jordan will be included in the documentary.
While promoting the docu-series, the six-time NBA champion revealed that he believes people will see him as a 'horrible' guy after watching his interactions with his teammates. The latest preview was shared while Jordan was being interviewed by Good Morning America.
