Watch The Entire Michael Jordan VHS Collection
You might've been excited for The Last Dance, but nobody was more excited than Don Sperling.
Don made over 130 home videos of Michael Jordan and the Bulls. Dazzling Dunks and Basketball Bloopers, NBA Jam Session, and Come Fly With Me. Are a few among them.
To prepare for the new series, Sperling dusted off his old VHS tapes, and started rolling them. Sperling, who now works as the Vice President and Executive Producer of Entertainment for the New York Giants.
Some of his videos were featured as hour long NBAE specials, which we tracked down on YouTube.
