It only happens a minute in the last episode of The last Dance. It is 1998 and the Chicago Bulls are in the NBA final. Michael Jordan absolutely jams with headphones turned on (and connected to a Discman) as he gets on the team bus, with shadows blocking his eyes. Someone on the bus asks him what he is hearing and a very excited Jordan replies, "Kenny Lattimore. Brand new. Not even out. He's a friend of mine."
The moment in question spawned an entire Twitter account called @jumpmanjamming, dedicated to meming the moment with a variety of songs tailored to the clip. But if you want to see the clip with the current Lattimore song, you have to queue "Days Like This" from his From the soul of man Album that was released later in 1998. After viewers asked on Twitter which unpublished song Jordan was jamming, Lattimore himself gave the answer.
In 1998 I sent Michael Jordan an advanced copy of my album "From the Soul of Man". Who knew "Days Like This" was his pre-game hype song. The #TheLastDance # RealR & B.

However, @ jumpmanjamming Twitter has created almost endless memory by allowing Jordan to dance to everything from Doja Cat to Kanye West to the Spice Girls. Of course, over 45,000 followers have been excited to see what Jordan could jam next, but maybe none of them will overdo the basketball star like Lattimore in 1998. With the help of Lattimore's music – and the rest of The Team – Jordan led the Chicago Bulls won the NBA championship and even won the MVP trophy. You can catch the full one Last Dance Documentation on demand or the ESPN app now and streaming on Netflix on July 19. In the meantime you can rock to Kenny Lattimore's "Days Like This".
