Ep. 43 – Last Dance Recap & Current State of the Bulls

Host Matt Gentile gives his thoughts on ESPN’s The Last Dance. Did the documentary do more to hurt the reputation of the Chicago Bulls throughout the league? Matt explains how the organization’s tide could be turning with the additions of executive VP Arturas Karnisovas and GM Marc Eversley as well as team president Michael Reinsdorf becoming the face of ownership.

‘The Last Dance’ fallout and the Bulls’ possible return this season

“The Last Dance” finished up a week ago, but there has been plenty of fallout from the conclusion of the series. Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf went on a media tour of sorts lamenting how the breakup of the dynasty was portrayed, while Horace Grant ripped into Michael Jordan for several aspects of the doc. Jason and Ricky then turn the conversation to the current Bulls, including the recent staff moves and the possibility that they will return to play in the 2019-20 season.

The Dance Is Done

On a new episode of BullsHQ, hosts Mark Karantzoulis (@mkhoops) and Fred Pfeiffer (@cbefred) get together to go over the final two episodes of The Last Dance.

On the show, Mark and Fred share the feeling both had once the docu-series concluded, how Bulls fans should be extremely angry at Jerry Reinsdorf for not doing more to keep Jordan and the team together, other notable omissions that didn’t make the show, how Jordan’s teammates will be feeling about their portrayal through the episodes, and so much more.
