Michael steals the show
Everywhere he goes, Michael Jordan seems to be the centre of attention. Even with the show highlighting the achievements of Chicago Bulls and all efforts from the people from the organisation – Michael Jordan snatches the headlines. Despite his efforts to avoid it at times, his sheer pace and never-ending energy is astonishing as he continues to score buckets with ease. His mentality and determination to win is what stands out as it was something that seems so amazing.
Netflix is currently dropping two episodes a week as it gives us more exclusive footage on Michael Jordan and their journey. Not knowing much about basketball should not affect you as it will let you develop affection for the team.
Even though Michael Jordan is the star of the show, the Netflix series does well to shed light on the other players and people around the organisation. At times it shows darker sides to the teams and the more aggressive aspect to competitive sports. Scot Pippen also has scenes where he is berating Jerry Krause as he feels betrayed by him and some of the higher ups. Within the organization, some of them definitely come across as unappealing as there are bad sides but seeing the downs and ups to the team lets you stay more invested into the whole organization.
