Daily Distraction: Break down 'The Last Dance' with Hanif Abdurraqib and Clark Kellogg
UPDATE: The video is live.
Countless column inches have already been generated by ESPN's epic new Michael Jordan documentary. "The Last Dance," a 10-hour TV event, delves deep into the life, career and legacy of the Chicago Bulls legend, who will go down as the second best basketball player of all-time behind Akron's own LeBron James. (James went to my high school; don't @ me.)
Today (Friday, May 15), the Wexner Center for the Arts will add its own worthy contribution to the discourse, hosting a pre-recorded conversation between poet, essayist and cultural critic Hanif Abdurraqib and CBS basketball analyst Clark Kellogg. The conversation will be directed by David Filipi, the Wex director of film/video. Expect pointed takes on Jordan's cultural legacy and basketball prowess, as well as, one would guess, his more questionable sartorial choices.
The conversation will post here on Friday afternoon.
While you wait for the discussion, here's a compilation of Jordan getting owned by Celtics great Larry Bird.
