The talk of the sports world the past few weekends has been "The Last Dance", the documentary following the Bulls dynasty of the 90's.

The response has been mostly positive, but some, like Jay Mariotti, think the doc has been too kind to Jordan, and doesn't tell the whole story.


Jay, Long-time columnist, contributor for Barrett Sports Media/Host of the “Unmuted Podcast”, joined Bill to talk about his time covering Jordan, the accuracy of the documentary, and more:

- Is this documentary biased towards Michael Jordan?

- What would he have liked them to focus on more in the documentary?

What are the downsides to having such a competitive edge that guys like MJ and Pete Rose had?

What are his thoughts on the way Jerry Krause and Jerry Reinsdorf handled the end of the Bulls dynasty?

What did he think of the job Phil Jackson did coaching the 90’s Bulls?
