Video: Jerry Krause dancing on team plane after Bulls win was legendary
The late Jerry Krause was a basketball executive and did not exactly have the reputation for being a party animal, no surprise. That’s what made one specific clip from “The Last Dance” so incredible to see.
In 1991, the Chicago Bulls finally overcame the Detroit Pistons after previously not being able to get past them in the playoffs. They celebrated on their plane ride home from Detroit, which included even Krause dancing. Here’s the video clip.

That was incredible.
Krause was portrayed in the documentary as someone who was disliked by Phil Jackson, Michael Jordan, and Scottie Pippen, so seeing him in a moment of fun — where he was not mocked by MJ — was definitely unexpected. After beating the Pistons, the Bulls went on to win their first of six championships. They won two more in a row before MJ’s hiatus and then won three in a row from 1996-1998.
