According to's senior NBA writer Sam Amico, the documentary is in the works, and he was asked to be a part of it. 

"Happy I’m old enough to have been asked to help with the documentary on Michael Jordan … with the Wizards. Details soon," he tweeted Wednesday.

Jordan came out of his second retirement to suit up for the Wizards in 2001. He'd be paired with the team's no.1 overall draft pick Kwame Brown, and his old Bulls coach Doug Collins.
