Four new Michael Jordan documentaries will air on Friday, May 29th
In honor of basketball legend Michael Jordan and his incredible career, BT Sport looks back on some of his best moments. On Friday May 29th BT Sport ESPN shows a series of documentaries about his life and career, as well as games from his time in North Carolina.
BT Sport will repeat some North Carolina College Basketball Classic promotions for the first time in the 1980s. The North Carolina Tar Heels from 1981-1982 are one of the most legendary teams in college basketball history. The team had three NBA players, including Michael Jordan himself. Jordan fans can repeat 5 unforgettable games, including the 1982 National Championship game against Patrick Ewing and the Georgetown Hoyas.
s The action is followed by four documentaries: Sole Man, Bad Boys, Jordan Rides the Bus and Rodman For Better or Worse.
Sole Man follows the story of Sonny Vaccaro and is one of the most charismatic, polarizing and influential figures in the sports world. It was Vaccaro who launched the Nike Air Jordan empire in the 1980s.
Jordan Rides the Bus is investigating the real reason Michael Jordan quit basketball to play double-a-baseball. Ron Shelton revisits Jordan’s short career in the small leagues and examines the motives that prompted the world’s most competitive athlete to play a new sport in the relative darkness of Birmingham, Alabama for a young manager named Terry Francona.
