Only a few episodes of "The Last Dance" have been revealed, but it's fair to say that it's been a huge success so far. To release a documentary on the greatest player ever on the greatest team ever is just a fantastic move on the part of ESPN.
But is there a doubt that the number of other reports documentaries is going to skyrocket in the next few weeks and months? The success of the Jordan doc is only going to lead to a wave of other ones coming out.
One such project could center around the 2008 Olympic "Redeem Team" -- at least, according to Dwyane Wade.
“We’re doing a documentary on the 2008 Redeem Team… It’s something that we’ve been working on for the last year or so,” the three-time champion said on The Platform podcast.
“For me, that was a big year, 2008. I had to kind of redeem myself, because everybody thought I was done. But that was an amazing time, man, and that team, man? Oh my god.”

In case you don't know, that team was given the "Redeem Team" tagline because of their mission to avenge their embarrassing bronze finish in 2004. Wade joined LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Chris Bosh, Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony, and Chris Paul en-route to an undefeated, Gold Medal finish.
Let's hope that Wade is being truthful here because it would be awesome to get a behind-the-scenes perspective on that team and their run for redemption that year. All those players, talents, and personalities on one team? That'd be a sight to see.
