If you’re a basketball fan, you have probably been keeping up to date with “The Last Dance” which is ESPN’s documentary about Michael Jordan and the 1997-98 Bulls. The first four episodes have been incredibly entertaining and with six episodes left, we are surely about to see some interesting revelations.

According to Arash Markazi of the Los Angeles Times, Episode 5 will be particularly bittersweet for NBA fans as it contains an interview with none other than Kobe Bryant. As Markazi explains, Kobe’s interview was filmed all the way back in July and was only put together a week before his death, on January 26th. With the circumstances surrounding Kobe in mind, it has been revealed that Episode 5 will be dedicated to Kobe.


Kobe was a huge Michael Jordan fan growing up and once Bryant made it into the league, the two had a solid relationship that lasted until Bryant passed away. In fact, MJ spoke at Kobe’s funeral and said a piece of him died when Kobe was killed. With this in mind, we can only imagine what kind of stories Kobe shared during his interview and we can’t wait to watch it.

Episode 5 will air on Sunday, May 3rd at 9 PM EST.
