Jordan, a number three draft pick in 1986, transformed the Chicago Bulls organisation.
The Bulls went from a struggling franchise to legitimate playoff contenders to NBA champions.
They would taste defeat in three consecutive Eastern Conference finals towards the end of the 1980s, losing to the Detroit Pistons each time.
However, the turn of the decade saw their fortune change. The Bulls went on to claim six NBA titles, three consecutive titles either side of Jordan’s ill-fated foray into Baseball.
The documentary features sit-down interviews with a plethora of NBA icons including Jordan, the late Kobe Bryant, Scottie Pippen, Steve Kerr, Dennis Rodman, Phil Jackson, Patrick Ewing and Charles Barkley.
While well-known faces from outside the sport also feature, including former American presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
The Last Dance is available to watch from Monday, April 20 on Netflix. The link to the series is here.
