Netflix and ESPN have just released a documentary featuring Michael Jordan (MJ) called The Last Dance. As a massive fan of sport (and business) documentaries, I’m one episode in and already hooked.
I knew that Michael was ultra competitive, but I didn’t realise the extent to which that competitiveness got in the way of how he treated the people around him.
A review article in The Nation (here) summed it up perfectly:
“Michael Jordan is compelling, but not when his bullying is portrayed as a positive part of his brand”
The article is a great read. I can’t wait to watch more episodes now through a different lens.
