The Last Dance paved the way for many forgotten faces to again revel in the limelight. The documentary aired the biggest names from the 90s, yet a few of them were total strangers for generation Z. Michael Jordan and his invincible Chicago Bulls deserve all the praise for the centuries to come.
Steve Kerr is another name that was known more for being the Golden State Warriors coach than as a five-time NBA Champion. Three of those rings came from his time with the Chicago Bulls. The documentary fittingly captured his contribution to the team, especially his clutch performances. Still, something about it left the man disappointed.
Steve Kerr believes The Michael Jordan documentary missed something important
The Splash Dad Steve gave this interview in the Bill Simmons Podcast, where he spoke at length about how he had forgotten some details that the amazing documentary made him aware of. He specifically mentioned Scottie Pippen’s injury and when Dennis Rodman went for a wrestling match during the NBA finals.
But he also threw light over something that bothered him. He said, “It was a little disappointing that a couple of guys Luke Longley and Ron Harper didn’t get a whole lot of coverage. But you can only do so much obviously and Luke lives in remote western Australia.”
He then took a sarcastic dig at the makes of the successful documentary by saying, “So, I don’t know I still talk with him he’s still a good friend and I don’t know what the budget was for ‘The Last Dance’ but it wasn’t big enough to fly to remote western Australia I think and go interview him. But I would have liked to see him and Ron get a little more love just because they were starters and huge players on those teams.”
Who are these two former Chicago Bulls stars?
Ron Harper is a five-time NBA champion who was the 8th pick in the first round of 1986. He joined the Chicago Bulls in 1994-1995 season and stayed till 1998-1999 season, post which he joined the Los Angeles Lakers. So two of his rings came with the Lakers.
Luc Longley was drafted in 1991 and played seven playoffs in his ten seasons with the NBA. He joined the Chicago Bulls the same year when Michael Jordan announced a sudden retirement, 1993. He is 7’2” tall and coincidentally averaged 7.2 points per game in his playing career. Watch this video to know about his personality.
Wow, the words of a champion. Let us all remember these greats and never forget them.
