What sports story would you watch a 10-part series on?

Now that the Last Dance is done. What else would work in this format, sports-wise? Obviously, they would need enough footage, but imagine they did for the sake of this thread.

Here are a few for me:

Jackie Robinson
Mickey Mantle
Bill Russell
Wilt Chamberlain
Jim Brown

Those are just to name a few.

Any of those. In addition:

Wayne Gretzky
Muhammad Ali
The Patriots
Ted Williams
Didn’t know, or at least remembered, you were such a big fan of Gretzky.

Love the addition of Williams. What a life. One of the best ball players ever, and a tremendous pilot during war.

I remember watching him with the Oilers, would catch games on ESPN. I’m not a big hockey fan anymore, but watching him get so many goals and assists, breaking all kinds of records, was great to watch. He was just at a different level.

I had to go to LA in ‘93 for work when he was with the Kings, and I was bummed they weren’t in town at the time.

Wilt Chamberlain or Bill Russel Would be really interesting. Though, I'd be more inclined to say a series about the 1960s Celtics in general would be just as good.

I think it'd be super cool to get a 10-part series on the history of the Olympics. Most notable performances, the way a lot of the sports and the games changed over time, etc.

Other than that, I'd love to see a series about Kobe Bryant, especially since he recently passed away.
