Jeff Van Gundy on Michael Jordan, Bulls, ‘The Last Dance’ documentary

Jeff Van Gundy had a front row seat to Michael Jordan’s brilliance.

Since the 1989-90 season, Van Gundy has been a fixture in the NBA. He spent 11 years as a head coach and is now part of ABC’s lead broadcast team with Mike Breen and Mark Jackson. And his coaching career will forever be connected to Jordan, who constantly stood in the way of Van Gundy’s Knicks.

Van Gundy’s first win as a head coach came against Jordan’s Bulls during the famed 1995-96 season when Chicago set a then-record of 72 wins. His Knicks also defeated Chicago in the final game of the ’96–’97 season, preventing the Bulls from being the only team to ever post 70 wins in back-to-back years.
