‘The Last Dance’ wraps up with episodes 9 and 10 on Sunday evening. It’s been a wild ride on the way to Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls capturing their last title in a dynasty that will always be remembered. We’ve gotten an inside look at the locker room during MJ and the Bulls’ runs. We’ve seen a side of Jordan we never thought we’d see — maybe we knew about it but not in this light. Here’s how to watch the series finale of ‘The Last Dance’ documentary.

What to watch for in Episode 9 and 10

Really we’re getting to the end of the dynasty, so that means the final championship in 1998 against the Utah Jazz. It’s the second three-peat being completed and after that, really, just a bunch of question marks. Michael Jordan’s future was unknown, though we got a hint of him wearing down previously.

We know that MJ would go on to return and play for the Wizards briefly so that’ll be interesting see, get some insight. Overall, it will be interesting to see how the documentary wraps everything up and puts a bow on it. The documentary has been great but also all over the place at times.

I’m looking forward to seeing how Jordan’s legacy is perceived after the final two episodes. For a lot of us, MJ was our childhood. At least for me it was. After seeing this entire documentary I’ll say that my view of Jordan hasn’t changed much. He’s still one of the major influences in my life. People make mistakes. Everyone is human. Jordan was a man who persevered at the highest level imaginable. It should be a great ending to an amazing story.
