    Default So...The Last Dance documentary...

    is it hagiographic? I want to see it regardless because of the new footage with MJ and the Bulls, but I agree with Ken Burns and am a little skeptical that his production company was involved meaning he got approval over what goes in and stays out. I feel like, a 10 episode series should show the good and the bad, warts and all. The bully that Michael was to teammates and opponents, breakup of friendship with Charles Barkley, at the same time, a great player. Seems from what I've read the director probably feared talking to Jordan, knowing what a big ego he has, and the grudges that he can hold. And he throws Horace Grant and Scottie Pippen under the bus too.

    Saw it. It does show him in the way you say. Yes it's about Jordan mainly, and some of his team mates have said they don't like how they are portrayed. But it shows Joedan as an obsessively driven force, with his share of warts. It is really well done.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    One thing that is interesting is we remember how do infant MJand the Bulls were. But many critical games came down to the buzzer.

    its definitely one sided but its shows his bully side. It doesn't leave him looking squeaky clean but it also doesn't get a bunch of other peoples side of the story.

    I had forgotten that part with Pippen and Kukoc.

    He really was wrong for that.

    shit just the way he bullied certain players might be considered a crime if someone did it today. He was way more savage then some kids on facebook.
