Great news for basketball fans amid this whole coronavirus crisis. The NBA is suspended until further notice after several players and staffers tested positive for COVID-19, which is affecting the whole world, not only the association.
It’s still not clear if we’ll see the rest of the 2019/20 season being played out, but some people within the league still have hope we can see some basketball at some point this year. In the meantime, fans are looking for options to kill time while this whole thing goes away, which led ESPN to make some changes in their schedule.
According to the New York Post, the ABC/ESPN’s documentary of Michael Jordan is being moved up to April 19.
The 10-part documentary was initially expected to debut in June when the league was defining its champion. However, after the coronavirus outbreak and the subsequent suspension of the season, the so-called ‘worldwide leader in sports’ decided to move things up and now we’ll see the docuseries from April through May.
NBA fans, analysts and even players, like LeBron James, started to ask ESPN to move up the documentary series date since there was no better time to watch it than this. Everybody is at home right now, and basketball fans are craving some NBA-related content. Luckily for them, their voices were heard and we’ll see ‘The Last Dance’ in just a couple of weeks from now.
You never get tired of seeing Michael Jordan and the things he did with the Chicago Bulls in the 90s. This is another chance to witness his greatness.
