Packer and Durham Special: Jordan at Carolina
Additionally, ACCN will air Packer and Durham Special: Jordan at Carolina on May 16 at 11 a.m., in advance of the five-game marathon. The one-hour show will feature interviews with North Carolina head coach Roy Williams, legendary players Sam Perkins, Muggsy Bogues and Ralph Sampson, and veteran sportscaster Billy Packer.
Arguably the greatest player in the game of basketball, Jordan helped the Tar Heels to the 1982 NCAA Championship and ACC Tournament title, as well as three straight appearances in the NCAA tournament. While at North Carolina, he earned national player of the year honors (1984), was a two-time consensus first-team all-American (1983, 84), ACC Player of the Year (1984) and a two-time first team all-ACC selection (1983, 84) before having one of the most decorated careers in NBA history.
The Michael Jordan Carolina Rewind precedes episodes 9 and 10 of the acclaimed ESPN Films 10-part docuseries The Last Dance on Sunday, May 17, at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m., respectively on ESPN and ESPN2.
