ESPN’s 10-part documentary The Last Dance, which centers on Michael Jordan and the ’90s Bulls and features previously unseen footage from the 1997-98 season, finally came to an end last night. The ninth and tenth episodes were shown on ESPN in America (and are available on Netflix in other territories).  With the docu-series coming to an end, a new generation of basketball fan has been given a crash course on MJ’ dominance and why he is — without a doubt — the GOAT.

The final episodes focused on the 1998 NBA Finals, Michael Jordan’s iconic “Flu Game” and what caused it, as well as the “last shot” to win his sixth, and final NBA ring.

Predictably, reactions on social media were plentiful. Michael Jordan was — once again — anointed the GOAT, while The Last Dance was dubbed the GOAT documentary. Users loved the pizza story — which is what MJ believed caused the flu game.

For those of you who haven’t watched the docu-series, there may be spoilers below. For those that have or don’t care, scroll through some of the best reactions below.
