Words: Chloe Watts
The most anticipated sports documentary of 2020, The Last Dance revisited the Chicago Bulls dynasty and their forever immortalised final championship season of ‘97/98. While we were prepared for legendary plays, next level drama and raw interviews, we were not prepared for Jordan’s iconic 90’s style. In turn, it sent the internet into over-drive and saw a sharp rise in basketball-inspired style and Air Jordan resellers.
Whether you waited eagerly each week for the next episode to land or binge watched the series in one sitting, you’re probably wondering what to watch now. To help fill the documentary-sized hole in your life, we bring to you five documentaries to watch after you’ve finished The Last Dance.
