Imagine growing up in a household with Michael Jordan and having no clue why so many people wanted to be like him.
Michael Jordan has always been one of the most famous athletes to ever grace the Earth, but he has somehow gotten even bigger thanks to “The Last Dance.”
Jordan’s oldest daughter, Jasmine, has been watching the show and recently admitted during an interview that she used to have zero idea why her dad was so famous and had to resort to Google searches to find out.
Via CBS Sports:
“I’m harassing him. He’s probably tired of me texting him. I think my brothers and I are doing it, probably alongside all his friends. But for me, it’s like, hey, as I said, I was super young so I’m really taking this in as a fan. And I’m also trying to corroborate all those stories you were telling me all those years. Trying to make sure you weren’t just fabricating and making it bigger than what it was. I’m definitely texting him nonstop. I think there hasn’t been an episode, a Sunday where I haven’t been like, ‘This happened-let me know your thoughts.’
When I was a child, and growing up during the time, I didn’t really understand what was happening because I was so young, and it just didn’t really resonate until I got older. I laugh because I actually Googled my dad at one point just to figure it out. I was like why is everyone so intrigued by you, you’re just dad, you’re not that cool. But lo and behold, he was kind of a big deal. So it’s definitely something that’s been eye-opening.”
That is truly something.
Both Episodes 9 and 10 of The Last Dance will air Sunday, May 17th to complete the entire docu-series.
