One of the funniest highlights from the latest installment of ESPN's The Last Dance documentary was Michael Jordan calling out teammate Scott Burrell for his relentless party habits.

In the behind the scenes clip, the Chicago Bulls are getting settled on a plane the morning after Super Bowl XXXII. Burrell, who may be hungover after celebrating the big game, starts getting dragged by Jordan, who calls him "Dennis Rodman Jr." With the cameras rolling, Burrell becomes hilariously unsettled.

"This man never gets sleep. Dennis Rodman... Jr.," Jordan said. "Hey don't say that on camera yo," he replied, looking back at the camera cautiously. "He never gets his sleep. Single man and he thinks he can hang out all night," Jordan continued.

Despite Burrell asking MJ to stop, he adds another stinger: "If he's committed to one girl it's a lie. It's a lie. He's out every night."

Finally, when Burrell expresses concern that his mom and dad are going to see this footage one day, MJ puts things bluntly. “Mom and dad, he’s an alcoholic,” he proclaimed.

Following this one of a kind interaction, memes started pouring in imagining how Burrell's wife would respond. 😂

Well, Burrell's wife Jeane Coakley, a sports reporter for SNY, was a good sport and started fielding a few questions about how she felt after watching Jordan dig into her husband on national television.

"I was in high school when 'baby Rodman' was at his peak 😂," she responded to one tweet. Someone else told her to "mute" the last five minutes, prompting a playful disagreement, "🤣🤣🤣 Nah, I want hear about 'baby Rodman.'"

She also noted that Burrell appeared on Good Morning America on Monday morning, though he wasn't asked about the semi-embarrassing incident. Someone get this man a beer anyway.
