Couple of video shots of Michael Jordan and a teammate riding 10 speeds in the Netflix series, 'The Last' Dance'. I'm not comfortable posting screen grabs. Networks are getting litigious.
Good series.

What a difference between the 1st picture of Katie Holmes and the 2nd. I assume the 1st was probably staged.
