30 For 30: Jordan Rides the Bus
We first meet the journalists who covered Michael Jordan's retirement and then his transition to baseball. Of course, many of them had not written nice things at the time.
The movie then focuses on people whose lives were impacted by Jordan's stay in Birmingham: a real estate agent, a bar owner, a bus driver, etc.
I was in high school at this time and was the world's biggest Jordan fan, so I liked this. And while the strike may have killed his baseball career, it was fun to see people admit they had been wrong about his chances of success.
