Each week during “The Last Dance”, someone says the thing. It’s either the thing that got Michael Jordan fired up at the time or creates a meme-worthy reaction from Jordan during one of the documentary’s interviews.
This week, it was Gary Payton, the superstar Seattle SuperSonics defender. The Sonics faced Jordan’s Chicago Bulls in the 1996 NBA Finals. Payton thought he had a plan to slow down Jordan, who was the regular-season MVP.
Payton thought wrong. Jordan, who was also the Finals’ MVP that season, is literally still laughing about it.
