One of the most jaw-dropping moments of ESPN's "The Last Dance" documentary on Michael Jordan and the 1997-98 Bulls was Dennis Rodman, beer in hand, driving off on a motorcycle without a helmet as he was about to start a 48-hour mid-season "vacation" in Las Vegas. Only Dennis Rodman could pull that off.
It's safe to say a request from, say, a Warriors player in today's age to pull a Rodman wouldn't exactly fly with coaches, teammates, the front office or anyone involved with Golden State.
"It would be very hard for a player to even conceive of," Myers said to ESPN's Nick Friedell. "You'd probably look at the player and say, 'This is a bad thing for you. Bad for us and for you.'"
Imagine the scrutiny for all parties involved in the social media age. The tweets, the Stephen A. Smith rants, the TMZ headlines ... it would be non-stop.
The craziest part is, the "vacation" worked for Rodman. Yes, it lasted longer than 48 hours. Yes, it gave us a wild Carmen Electra story. But in Rodman fashion, and Phil Jackson's Zen ways, it worked.
"It worked," Myers said. "Everybody laughs that they let him go. What if they didn't?"

With sports fans chomping at the bit, "The Last Dance" has felt like Game 7 of the NBA Finals. This is a must-see live event for sports fans. The same would be true if one day the Warriors had their own documentary centered around Kevin Durant's final season in the Bay Area.
"I think that was the right decision," Curry said Thursday on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." "But there's plenty of good content to hopefully where 20 years down the line we'll revisit what we did."
While it might not be as behind-the-scenes as "The Last Dance" claims to be, there no doubt will be some kind of documentary on the Warriors' dynasty down the road. As for any mid-season vacations in Las Vegas, that's a hard no.
