It’s 1997 and after five championships in seven seasons, the future of the Chicago Bulls organization is in doubt. 

Aside from star Michael Jordan, other players are aging, the coach and management are at odds, and the word “rebuilding” is on everyone’s lips. 

So the stage is set for a tumultuous and historic “Last Dance.” The new 10-part ESPN miniseries follows Jordan’s historic last season with the Bulls. 

Guests: Melissa Isaacson, covered the Bulls for the Chicago Trubine in the 90s now a lecturer at Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism. Rich McBride, Assistant Men's Basketball Coach at Moberly Community College and played basketball at the University of Illinois.
