If you ask, you shall receive.

During this pandemic, people have been looking for any way to spend their time. For me, it has been video games, Netflix, movies, and some exercise every now and then. Way too much eating as well.

One thing people have been asking for over the past few weeks is the early release of the 10-part Michael Jordan documentary titled “The Last Dance.”

This documentary has been heavily awaited since this trailer was released in December. This version has just over 1 million views on Youtube and its shorter counterpart, which runs for just a minute and was released about an hour before this article was posted, has been viewed 8,900 times.

Across Twitter, Instagram, all forms of social media, the people have been asking for the early release because well, what else are they goning to watch? But, it didnt seem like the sports media mogul was going to budge.

Then, Lebron James jumped into the fray when he got together with the old RoadTrippin podcast crew from their time with the Cleveland Cavaliers. If you guys haven’t listened to a podcast with Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye, please do because they are HILARIOUS.

But, back to asking for the MJ documentary.

Like I said, if you ask, you shall receive.

Monday night, New York Post sports columnist Andrew Marchand revealed that ESPN would be moving up the release date of the documentary from June to April 19.

BIG NEWS!!!!!!

During these dark times, we look for any piece of positive news to brighten our days and this is a good start. With the lack of sports these days, we’ve all had a slight craving and a 10-part series about one of the greatest NBA teams of all time is a great way to spend our free time.

“As society navigates this time without live sports, viewers are still looking to the sports world to escape and enjoy a collective experience,” ESPN said in a statement. “We’ve heard the calls from fans asking us to move up the release date for this series, and we’re happy to announce that we’ve been able to accelerate the production schedule to do just that. This project celebrates one of the greatest players and dynasties ever, and we hope it can serve as a unifying entertainment experience to fill the role that sports often play in our lives, telling a story that will captivate everyone, not just sports fans.”

If you’ve always been interested in the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan run in the NBA. This is your type of documentary. If you like basketball. This is your type of documentary. If you’re bored. This is your type of documentary. If you don’t have the corona, are sitting on your couch or you don’t have to go to work, this is your type of documentary.

It’s the story behind the GOAT and his team! Give it a watch! Until then, it’s back to Netflix for me!
