'The Last Dance' brings back brilliant TV roast of Doug Collins 1

Doug Collins coached the Bulls in the late-80s when Michael Jordan ascended into superstardom and the franchise established itself as an Eastern Conference power.

“The Last Dance,” a 10-part documentary series about Jordan’s career, chronicled Collins’ tenure in episodes three and four on Sunday.

While there were plenty of positive moments about him shown from the era — including his famous “Get the ball to Michael and everyone get the f— out of the way” quote — there was also a memorable burn.

After getting ousted in favor of Phil Jackson after reaching the Eastern Conference Finals, Collins wore a TV broadcast zinger that was replayed in “The Last Dance” to begin the scene about his exit.

“If you’re getting ready for work right now, then you’re probably not Doug Collins,” said the morning newscaster.

Collins went 137-109 while in charge of the Bulls. He was just 35 when he took over the organization.

Despite the team’s improvement under his watch, Collins couldn’t push Chicago to the NBA Finals, where Jackson would emerge victorious six times with the Bulls.
