McAllister’s MashUp; The Last Dance Edition

This is sad. No March Madness. No NBA. No MLB. Virtually no fun. No one envisioned this happening. I wish this was just a bad dream, but this is a harsh reality. This has been tough for everyone in America, but this has been incredibly difficult on yours truly. Without the NBA, I have been a mere shell of the man I used to be.

The one bright spot during this time has been the ten-part documentary about the 1990’s Chicago Bulls on ESPN called The Last Dance. At the time of this writing, the first four episodes have aired. Many people have been swayed from team LeBron to team MJ when it comes to their stance on which the best really is. I however am still firmly on team LeBron. The one thing this series has done is make me realize how good Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman actually were. Scottie Pippen is the most under-appreciated superstar in NBA history. He is probably the best wing defender of all time, and maybe even has made it up to number two on my list of top five small forwards.

Dennis Rodman is easily one of my favorite players of all time after watching this. The scene where Rodman was holding a Miller Lite while walking through the tunnel had me laughing for an hour after the fact. Rodman was the perfect rebounder, and never had an off switch.

I highly recommend this show to any sports fan. It has been the one thing that I look forward to weekly, and is a great look into the older era of NBA basketball.
