Some great takes erupted out of Twitter in response to the broadcast of “The Last Dance” series chronicling Michael Jordan and the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls.

Let’s take a close look at how people have taken to Twitter to react to episodes No. 3 and 4 of ESPN and Netflix’s “The Last Dance.” We’re taking a deeper dive here of how NBA stars reacted to this edition of the docuseries focusing on the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls.

The buzz surrounding the documentary series has prompted a bit of discussion in the Twitter-sphere among fans, media professionals, and current and former NBA stars.

Bulls star Zach LaVine felt motivated to better himself after watching “The Last Dance”.

Check it out:

In a bit of a GOAT recognizing another GOAT moment, LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers acknowledged how trying yet rewarding it is to chase an NBA championship title.

Take a look:

In a tweet, Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz had this to say.

Mitchell’s tweet is in reference to a portion of the documentary series where Dennis Rodman and his role on the 1997-1998 Chicago Bulls team is highlighted. As the film shows, Rodman became overwhelmed with the idea of becoming the “third wheel” when Scottie Pippen returned to the lineup taking after a brief hitaus to tend to an injury. Rodman turned to head coach Phil Jackson asking to be excused for 48 hours to regroup and to provide time to take a trip to Las Vegas.

As funny as the tweet may seem, Mitchell made a bit of a valid argument.

Tony Gill of NBC Sports Chicago weighed in on Rodman’s Vegas trip as well.

Check it out:

Former NBA star Caron Butler tweeted his support for Rodman, giving praise to the Hall of Famer.

Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics and J.J. Redick of the New Orleans Pelicans had a bit of a meeting of the minds during the documentary series. As the popular saying goes, great minds think alike.

Take a look:

Tatum’s retweet is in response to a post shared by Redick where he revels at the idea of the Bulls having a head coach like Doug Collins and how it benefited Michael Jordan.

Bobby Portis of the New York Knicks brought up a good point, saying he’s puzzled why people weren’t more outraged hearing the way the1997-1998 Bulls team was broken up all too soon.

Check it out:

The next two episodes of “The Last Dance” will begin at 8 p.m. CST. Sunday, May 3.

Next. 3 NBA Draft targets for Marc Eversley. dark

The documentary series, put on by ESPN and Netflix, can be viewed on ESPN and ESPN+.
