Life felt normal for two hours on Sunday night. People across the world tuned into watch the first two episodes of “The Last Dance,” ESPN’s 10-part documentary about what went right (and wrong) for Michael Jordan and the fascinating ’90s Chicago Bulls .
The start of the series had several focuses, including Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen’s early rise, and the credit Bulls GM Jerry Krause wanted but didn’t receive. Not only did fans tune in, but active NBA players did as well.
Here are some of the reactions from players across the NBA.
Scottie Pippen being the NBA’s 122nd highest-paid player sparks conversation
I’m glad Scottie is getting the respect he deserves, he was a beast #TheLastDance
