We had been waiting for the Magic’s cameo in “The Last Dance.”

On Sunday, in Episode 8, we finally got it.

The 1994-1995 Orlando Magic had a prominent role in Michael Jordan’s basketball return. They, of course, defeated the Bulls in the 1995 Eastern Conference semifinals shortly after Jordan’s return to the NBA. They were the driving force behind Jordan switching from No. 45 back to 23 (Nick Anderson, in particular). And they were the spark that motivated Jordan and the Bulls to dominate the NBA like no team had before when they went 72-10 the following season and swept the Magic in the 1996 Eastern Conference Finals en route to their second three-peat.

We relived these moments on Sunday as “The Last Dance” took us on a trip down memory lane.

And Twitter responded....
