We cannot wait for the Michael Jordan documentary 'The Last Dance'!
Jalen Rose and David Jacoby discuss a number of topics, including the Michael Jordan/Chicago Bulls documentary "The Last Dance" moving up to April 19, 2020; the possibility of the NBA playing out the season at a neutral site; Steve Kerr wanting the Golden State Warriors' 2019-20 NBA season; a socially awkward move from Kevin Durant; the NFL expanding its playoffs to 14 teams; the anniversary of Nipsey Hussle's death; and more.
Penny Hardaway joins Rachel Nichols on The Jump to talk about "The Last Dance," and how the documentary noted that Hardaway's Orlando Magic was the last team to beat Michael Jordan in the NBA playoffs. He also talks about a college team he was on beat the 1992 Dream Team, the lasting impact of Lil' Penny and how Eddie Murphy almost got the voice gig over Chris Rock, helping out 2020 NBA Draft prospect RJ Hampton, and the challenges of being a college coach (with the Memphis Tigers) during the pandemic.

✔️ Steve Kerr joins SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt as he reflects on the emotions "The Last Dance" brought back for him as he watched the documentary on his teammate Michael Jordan. Kerr says no one can grasp how difficult it was for Jordan to lead the Bulls as well as he did and says winning the NBA Finals got more and more difficult every season as the bullseye grew on their back. Kerr adds that in the next episode with the focus on Dennis Rodman, people will discover that he was actually very quiet and "cool" as a teammate. Lastly, Kerr says he does not think he would have ever been the coach of the Golden State Warriors if it wasn't for playing with Jordan on the Bulls.
✔️ Max Kellerman and Mike Greenberg discuss former Chicago Bulls PF Horace Grant calling out Michael Jordan following "The Last Dance" documentary.
✔️ Rachel Nichols, Tracy McGrady and Brian Windhorst discuss the possibility that Michael Jordan greenlit "The Last Dance" as a response to LeBron James winning the 2016 NBA Finals with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie wanting to play for the Nigerian national team at the 2021 Olympics, Jimmy Butler sending portable hoops to Miami Heat teammates, and a hypothetical situation involving 1-on-1 vs. MJ.
