The star-studded series also features rare interviews with Jordan and Pippen about Longley as well as the towering Australian’s former Bulls teammate Steve Kerr and coach Phil Jackson.

In celebration of Tuesday night’s win for the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2021 NBA Championship, Cincoro Tequila has created a limited-edition 2021 NBA Trophy Bottle. The bottle of Cincoro Añejo comes hand-engraved with “History Made,” referencing the Milwaukee Bucks anthem for this season, “History in the Making” — a song title that rings true for the Bucks, whose win marked the city’s first NBA championship in half a century.
