Like basketball fans worldwide, Eric Piatkowski watched “The Last Dance,” a 10-part mini-series on Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. With each episode, Piatkowski was reminded of his NBA career, which spanned 14 years. The University of Nebraska graduate made his NBA debut 1994 with the Los Angeles Clippers. “My rookie year, we had the worst record in the NBA,” Piatkowski said. “We were averaging about 2,500 people per game. Everyone said ‘Wait until the Bulls come to town.’ Every star in town is there and there are flashbulbs going off. I’m like, ‘Man, this is amazing.'” Piatkowski remembers seeing several celebrities courtside for his first Bulls vs. Clippers game, including Tiger Woods, Denzel Washington, and Jack Nicholson. Piatkowski adds that prior to the game, his wife and family members were taking pictures with celebrities courtside.
In 2004, Piatkowski was traded from the Houston Rockets to the Chicago Bulls, where he spent two seasons. “They’re showing the inside of the locker room (on the documentary,” Piatkowski said, “and it didn’t change one tiny bit from the time Jordan was there to the time I was there. I said to my wife, ‘Do you see where Jordan’s locker is?’ She says, ‘Yeah.’ I said, ‘That was my locker.'” Piatkowski adds that his wife was surprised to learn he shared the same locker as Jordan. “She goes, ‘So you had Jordan’s locker?'” Piatkowski said. “Yeah. She responded, ‘Well, that’s pretty cool.'”
