The first two episodes of ESPN's Michael Jordan-centric documentary series, The Last Dance, aired on Sunday night and drew rave reviews on social media. Fans loved the unprecedented access into the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls, as well as professional basketball during that time period. They also appreciated the focus on all aspects of Jordan's career instead of just the final season.
While there were numerous takeaways from the first two episodes, there was one moment that became a talking point. Jordan pulled up to practice in a black Chevrolet Corvette convertible and just parked in the middle of the lot. He didn't fit the car between any specific lines. He just stopped and headed into the building. The six-time NBA champion didn't even put the top up on the car.

Viewers of The Last Dance were in awe after watching this moment take place. They responded by discussing how this ability to leave the Corvette in the middle of the parking lot truly shows that Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. They also wanted to compare Jordan and LeBron James in regard to their parking abilities.
Whether they loved the parking job or hated it, the fans made sure to proclaim their feelings on Twitter. They wanted to discuss this specific moment from the first two episodes. Other aspects simply fell by the wayside.
Lebron James can park a 1997 Chevrolet Corvette better than Michael Jordan— The Mitochondria is the Powerhouse of the Cell (@Prismatic96) April 20, 2020
Nobody's talking about how Michael Jordan pulled up to practice and parked in the middle of the parking lot— Gucci (@gabe_possebon) April 20, 2020
...of the documentary so far, in my opinion, was Michael Jordan parking his car at practice 😂 the man has a fedora on & parks his convertible sideways in the middle of the parking lot with the top down. He had absolutely no regard for anyone else who parked their car. Amazing.— Johnny Carver (@CarverJohnny) April 20, 2020
Can we please address how savage #MichaelJordan parking wherever he wanted to open the documentary is???— Taylor Gaspar Estes (@TaylorEstes247) April 21, 2020

Lotta takeaways at the under-16 media timeout of #LastDance, but the biggest is that Michael Jordan's parking spot at Berto was wherever in the hell he wanted it to be.— Joey Wagner (@mrwagner25) April 20, 2020

Michael Jordan parks exactly how I expected Michael Jordan to park. The world has a "reserved parking for Michael Jordan" sign.— Feitelberg (@FeitsBarstool) April 20, 2020
The most bonkers thing abt The Last Dance 5 min preview clip is that Michael Jordan pulls into the practice facility parking lot, doesn't fit his Corvette into an actual parking spot, stops that shit at a random angle, parks & gets out.— Gene Kwak (@genekwak3) April 19, 2020
Only thing that would've been better than this is if he blocked Jerry Krause in everyday— garrison ward (@MisterGWard) April 20, 2020

A little late, but I just started watching The Last Dance about 10 minutes ago and I love that Michael Jordan just pulls up to the practice facility and doesn't even park his Corvette in a park spot, he just leaves it where ever. That's gangster af— DOVID-19 (@2Davez) April 20, 2020
