For the third and fourth episodes of the Michael Jordan docuseries on ESPN, The Last Dance, two of the main topics that were explored were Dennis Rodman and Phil Jackson's supposed gift to basketball, the triangle offense. But just like the first two episodes, they weren't the sole focus of their respective episode. Rodman's episode doubled as a rehash of the Bad Boys 30 for 30 -- with some of the Rodman 30 for 30 sprinkled in -- while Jackson's included the Bulls' first trip to the NBA Finals in 1991.
The mild beauty of the sports world being at a complete standstill is that anyone truly craving sports content at this very moment is likely watching this series every Sunday and sharing their thoughts in real-time to the world on Twitter. While you won't get the full story, following the timeline could give you a decent sense of what exactly is happening in the series at any given moment.
Here are some of the best tweets from Sunday's airing of The Last Dance. We begin, of course, with Dennis Rodman.

dennis rodman talking about rebounding is good— Natalie Weiner (@natalieweiner) April 27, 2020
The episode then veered into a segment about the Doug Collins-era Bulls from 1986 to 1989.
Doug Collins more proud of MJ than anyone in Jordan’s family.— Paolo Uggetti (@PaoloUggetti) April 27, 2020
Naturally, that segued into arguably Jordan's first iconic postseason moment, his game-winning shot against the Cavaliers to clinch win their 1989 first round series. The most notable part about this segment is how Ron Harper still seems upset that Craig Ehlo was tasked with guarding Jordan on that play instead of himself.
We have all been Ron Harper....lol— Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) April 27, 2020
I feel like Ron Harper’s soundbite is about to go eternal— Candace Buckner (@CandaceDBuckner) April 27, 2020
There was then a brief moment where the cameras showed Jordan's security team with a particularly interesting name.
Ay dog..... we gotta fight if you call my occupation a Jock Sniffer— Ahmed/Ramadan, I'm ready for you. (@big_business_) April 27, 2020
Returning to Rodman, the end of episode three involved the forward asking Jackson and Jordan for a vacation. The Bulls coach allowed him to go.

Poor Doug Collins was on the butt of an incredible opening line to a news story about his firing.
“If you’re getting ready for work right now you’re probably not Doug Collins” 💀💀💀— Madelyn Burke (@MadelynBurke) April 27, 2020
The Rodman-focused episode even made former Bulls forward Charles Oakley nostalgic about time he spent with The Worm and Michael Jordan...well, a Michael Jordan who's middle name isn't Jeffrey.
Say what you want Dennis Rodman invented load management 😂😂😂😂😂— Donovan Mitchell (@spidadmitchell) April 27, 2020
Speaking of the Bad Boys, the anger thatfor not shaking the Bulls' hands after their playoff series was quite palpable.
Old men still feeling some kind of way about handshakes 22 years later...— Candace Buckner (@CandaceDBuckner) April 27, 2020
who says males aren’t petty?
This hatred is still so palpable. Would watch a seven-game series between these old ass dudes right now— Pete Blackburn (@PeteBlackburn) April 27, 2020
I understand Isiah is a big part of the MJ story. But I’m surprised MJ didn’t keep him off the doc like he kept him off the Dream Team.— LaJethro Jenkins (@LaJethroJenkins) April 27, 2020
And now, a list of places people were when they saw Jordan's layup where he switched hands in mid-air during the 1991 NBA Finals.
The hand-switch layup was the first MJ highlight I remember watching as a kid.— Paolo Uggetti (@PaoloUggetti) April 27, 2020
I watched that Jordan move on a 13" TV in Juarez.— R Andrade Franco (@R_AndradeFranco) April 27, 2020

Finally, Jordan bullying Scott Burrell.

Jordan put D'Angelo Russell to shame
Imagining Scott Burrell setting in to watch this documentary with his lady friend tonight and just having an absolute panic attack— Kyle Neubeck (@KyleNeubeck) April 27, 2020
If it seems like I'm jumping around a lot in the timeline of Jordan's career, sorry to tell you that that's just how this series is structured.
didn't expect the bulls doc to have more timelines than westworld but here we are— 🌺 skkrrtt cobain (@tirhakahlove) April 27, 2020
