ESPN is going to bless fans with their Michael Jordan documentary early since we have no sports to watch.
Due to the Coronavirus, the sports world has been completely put on pause and it has led to a pretty sad state of affairs. We have no more live events to watch and sports fans are starting to get restless. It looks like the NBA won't come back until July or August which is bad news if you have a vested interest in who ends up winning the championship.
ESPN is looking to help those who are having sports withdrawals. Back in December, they premiered a trailer for their documentary about Michael Jordan and the 1998 Chicago Bulls. This 10-part docuseries was supposed to drop in June but because of the lack of sports on TV, ESPN is planning on airing the first episode on April 19th. This means fans would get to see the doc two months early and it would certainly provide us with some much-needed entertainment during these uncertain times.
This documentary promises to give fans some insight into that 98' Bulls team and how they struggled to stay together at times. That season, the Bulls won their sixth championship and the players were starting to get fed up with each other. This series will document all of those trials and tribulations while also providing additional interviews with some of the key figures.
Needless to say, we can't wait to see everything this documentary has to offer.
