If you liked The Last Dance, this is a great Australian Story about Micheal Jordan's team mate:
Save The Last Dance for me
How a “gentle giant” from Fremantle ended up playing alongside Michael Jordan in the “greatest team in the world”.
When former basketball star Luc Longley folded his 7-foot-2-inch (220cm) frame into a couch mid-last year to watch the documentary series The Last Dance, he was excited.
So imagine Longley’s disappointment as each of the 10 episodes dropped and it became clear his contribution would be ignored.
For decades Luc Longley has remained largely silent about his years with Michael Jordan's legendary Chicago Bulls team. Now he reveals his disappointment about being omitted from The Last Dance documentary and how he made peace with his basketball past.www.abc.net.au
