Michael Jordan wasn’t just a basketball player — he was a role-model and icon to fans and young ballers all around the world.
In fact, many of today’s players grew up watching Jordan and even adapted some of his tactics into their own game. The release of “The Last Dance” no doubt helped them relive some of their best childhood memories. And as they watched, many of them were given a reminder as to why his legacy is as untouchable as it is widely considered.
Here are some of their best reactions on the internet:

I want to see the footage they threw out and didn’t fit on this 10- part series too 👀. Wonder what would’ve happen if they would’ve kept Phil and the team together #TheLastDance

Yeah, it’s fair to say they’re in awe. With the COVID-19 pandemic shutting down most sports events, it’s not like these guys have anything better to do.
