    There are few athletes as iconic as Michael Jordan, yet somehow until now he's never sat down for a long-form documentary on his life and career. Premiering tonight, ESPN's The Last Dance includes interviews with Jordan himself, two presidents, and countless other Jordan fans and colleagues. Perhaps best of all, the ten-part documentary features extensive never-before-seen documentary footage of Jordan and his Chicago Bulls teammates shot during the 1997-98 season, his last with the team and the last of the Bulls' legendary six championship seasons in the nineties.
