Jason and Ricky give instant reactions to Episodes 7 and 8 of “The Last Dance.” These episodes feature a number of heavy and emotional moments, from Michael Jordan’s retirement after his father’s murder and the conspiracies that came along with these events to MJ bawling in the locker room after winning the 1996 NBA Finals on Father’s Day. The episodes also highlight Jordan’s maniacal competitiveness by showing how harshly he treated teammates and how he used any little slight against him as the ultimate motivation to win. The pod finishes up with a brief discussion about Jim Boylen reportedly getting ripped by several key players to the new front office, plus an ode to Ricky’s run to the national championship as head coach of the Western Illinois Leathernecks in College Hoops 2K8.
