“The Last Dance” documentary got off to a hot start on Sunday night, and it caused social media to absolutely roast ex-Chicago Bulls general manager Jerry Krause.
Krause, who served as Chicago’s general manager beginning in 1985 during the Michael Jordan-era, was depicted as the reason behind the Bulls dynasty dismantling. Krause signed then five-time champion head coach Phil Jackson to a one-year contract and announced it would be Jackson’s final season with the Bulls in 1997-98 as the organization would look to rebuild.
The ESPN documentary clearly opened the eyes of many social media users, and they shared their opinions.
Here’s what they said:
I can’t imagine an NBA GM now publicly saying it’s a coach’s final season before the season even starts.
