The Last Dance reminded everyone how insanely competitive Michael Jordan was during his career. The docuseries introduced every generation to some incredible behind-the-scenes clips of Jordan, including one where he's smoking a cigar and swinging a baseball bat after the Chicago Bulls dropped Game 1 of their first-round series to the Charlotte Hornets in 1995.
Jordan and the Bulls would go on to win the next three games and win the series. Of course, they were the 5-seed that year with Jordan having just returned from basketball. And they lost in the next round to the top-seeded Magic.
Morant and the Grizzlies are the 2-seed and this group has never won a playoff series. Jordan had won three titles before he was able to sit around and talk about how unbothered he was by a loss while wielding a bat and cigar. Game 2 is on tomorrow night.
