“The Last Days of Knight” is an unusual entry in ESPN’s “30 for 30” documentary series on multiple levels, but the most unusual thing of all is where it initially will be shown.
The film, which chronicles the journalistic quest that led to Bobby Knight’s firing as Indiana’s basketball coach, is timed to help launch ESPN+, the direct-to-consumer streaming service that opens for business on Thursday.
The service will include the full library of “30 for 30” films as well as live events not currently available on ESPN’s television or digital networks, including baseball, hockey and soccer games, boxing, rugby, cricket, college sports and more.
