"It would simply be inaccurate to say I don’t know the first thing about sports," says Heather Schwedel. "I know and have known for a long time who Michael Jordan is, what sport he played, and what team he was on. I guess I do have to admit, though, that until recently, I didn’t know the second thing about sports. Because I only just learned that Scottie Pippen was on that basketball team, the Chicago Bulls, with Michael Jordan. Prior to a few weeks ago, I kind of knew there was a basketball player named 'Scottie Pippen' (was it because his now ex-wife was a Real Housewife? Who can say?), but nope, did not know Pippen was on the Bulls with Jordan for the entirety of those ’90s dynasty years. All of this is to say that I’m not very interested in sports. So I want my comrades in sports indifference to trust me when I say The Last Dance, the 10-part ESPN documentary that wraps up this weekend and is responsible for teaching me that Scottie and MJ were teammates, is gripping television. I might even like it more than people who know enough about sports to see its flaws. It’s taken me from not knowing who Pippen is to seeing both him and Jordan as figures of almost Shakespearian intrigue and complexity. Or at least that’s what I’m telling myself to justify how much fun I’m having watching them lay waste to a cavalcade of teams that had the misfortune of not being the 1990s Chicago Bulls."
