On Sunday night, ESPN aired the third and fourth episodes of its 10-part The Last Dance documentary about Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls' six-ring dynasty in the 1990s.

From Dennis Rodman's mid-season Las Vegas vacation to Phil Jackson's hippie heritage, here are the 15 most savage moments of this latest installment. 😂

Rodman never wasted any time, especially with partying

Rodman was nothing short of an outlaw in his prime. One time, he even drank a Miller Lite while talking to reporters. This is what worry-free looks like.

Rodman loved to screw things up

To describe Rodman's style of play, Hall of Famer Gary Payton didn't spare any words. "Dennis Rodman was the fuck up person – he just fucks everything up," Payton said. "He's a pest, shutting down whoever he wanted to. It was always a challenge."

Don't mess with Detroit

Bill Laimbeer, Rick Mahorn, and other members of the "Bad Boys" Pistons weren't shy about their intent to beat up Jordan whenever they faced off against the Bulls.

When keeping it real goes wrong

Jordan snitched on teammate Scotty Burrell who was concerned that his mom and dad were going to hear about his party lifestyle. "Mom and dad, he's an alcoholic," Jordan proclaimed on camera.  💀

Rodman had a way with famous women

Really didn't expect Carmen Electra to make an appearance in The Last Dance, but anything is possible when you're talking about Dennis Rodman.

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas

Rodman once took a vacation in the middle of the season and headed to Las Vegas to party and let off some steam. As Jazz star Donovan Mitchell said, this dude low-key invented load management. 😂

The best part: He outsprinted everyone in practice upon returning from his bender.

Carmen Electra knew not to mess with MJ

Speaking of Carmen Electra, how about that story of her hiding in the closet when MJ burst into her and Rodman's hotel room in Vegas? What a scene.

Coach Jackson goes on the trip of a lifetime

Jackson liked to have fun early in his coaching career, especially when it involved psychedelics. He recalled a time when he took acid and thought he was a lion, causing him to channel his spirit animal and roar out loud.

Your man could never

From Ben Wallace's afro to Allen Iverson's braids, the NBA has seen some dope hairstyles over the years. But nobody's hair was more iconic than Rodman's multi-colored looks.

He had the fits, too

Rodman's outfits were second only to his eccentric hairdos.

Rodman walked so Tyler, The Creator could fly

With so many of today's hip-hop stars freely expressing their inner vibrant character and pushing the status quo of everyday style, one can't help but appreciate Rodman's fearless influence.

Just look at how Tyler, The Creator once dyed his hair for the Grammys. Notice any similarities to Rodman's cheetah print?

"I got you, fam" – Craig Sager (probably)

Legendary basketball personality Craig Sager decided to help Rodman settle one of his many fines on this night, slipping the star a $20 bill.

MJ really wouldn't let anything stop him

Jordan was out there against the "Bad Boys" era Pistons in 1991 looking like SpongeBob with the buff inflatable arms.

Former Bulls big man Horace Grant summed up his thoughts about the Pistons walking off the court without shaking the Bulls' hands after they were swept by Chicago in the 1991 Eastern Conference Finals with three words: "Straight up bitches."

Sometimes, you just gotta go with the flow

As another example of Rodman's give-no-fucks nature, this was his response when Phil Jackson asked him whether he wanted to join the Bulls: "I don't care. Whatever. What's up?"

Legend.
