“The Last Dance” filmmakers interviewed Dick Neher, Jordan’s Babe Ruth coach and his first coach in organized basketball to get a sense of him as a young athlete. “There’s a lot more than what we showed to Larry (his brother) and Michael’s athletic story,” Hehir said. “There was a story of how Larry once went 3-for-4 in a Little League game and Michael hit the game-winning home run. On the way home, Michael’s dad is praising Larry. He’s saying consistency, ‘That’s what you need. It’s one thing to swing for the fences. That’s fine. But look at Larry. He got three out of four hits.’ And Michael’s like, ‘I won the fucking game!’ (laughs). So there’s little things like that.”

The Mavericks’ owner is still working on details, but he said the franchise would first offer season-ticket holders the opportunity and then expand sign-ups to the first 10,000 fans total.
