Former King Isiah Thomas:
“How bad do you want it? Are you willing to get injured to score a basket?” Haha that’s how they was doing MJ— Isaiah Thomas (@isaiahthomas) April 27, 2020
Former King Vernon Maxwell:
Man MJ got a filthy mouth. I’m turning this off. #TheLastDance— Vernon Maxwell (@VernonMaxwell11) April 27, 2020
We will count Caron Butler as a former King, even though he only played 17 games.

The first four episodes have been very entertaining, giving us a fascinating perspective of what made Jordan click.
Jordan dominated the Kings during his time in Chicago, with the Bulls beating Sacramento 17 out of the 20 times the teams met.
The Kings did great against the Bulls without MJ. The team’s first season in Sacramento was 1985-86, when they beat Chicago in both meetings, which Jordan missed due to injury.
When Jordan was playing baseball, the Kings won three out of four meetings against the Scottie Pippen led Bulls.
What do you think of the first four episodes of the documentary?
