The sports world was salivating for "The Last Dance," and we got it Sunday night.
With games paused because of the global coronavirus pandemic, ESPN pushed up the premiere of the 10-part documentary series, and sports fans everywhere couldn't have been happier.
Judging by the excitement on Twitter leading up to the first two episodes, you would have thought we were about to watch the moon landing or some other historic world event.
As you can imagine, a lot of Warriors and Kings players were in front of the TV to watch the documentary chronicling the final season of the Chicago Bulls' dynasty. I mean, what else do they have to do right now?
Here's just some of the reaction from current and former Warriors and Kings players.

As a rookie going into the 1997-98 season, I was fortunate to take on Michael and the Bulls during their last title run. We gave them a run for their money, but that team was on a mission, and they weren’t going to be denied! #TheLastDance pic.twitter.com/dFuYb7cDBY— Adonal Foyle (@afoyle3131) April 20, 2020
