There’s also a stinger at the end lamenting the ultimate decline of the human workforce due to automation, yet it’s worth remembering that the machines themselves are simply tools that improve the production pipeline; it’s still a human being, and often a bean-counting, bottom-liner who stands to make a few more points on their stock portfolio, who makes the call to replace flesh-and-blood workers at the end of the day. – Dave Trumbore

But it is much more than that.
The Last Dance jumps back and forth between 1998 and the late 80s and early 90s when Jordan was performing and ruling the sport. It utilizes a hybrid of archive clips and undiscovered behind-the-scenes footage. It is genuinely engaging to see the interplays between some huge characters, and it is a gripping watch, even if you do not know much about basketball. A must watch if you enjoy reliving fascinating and epic past experiences.
