How could anyone forget this day in 1998 when Michael Jordan would juke Bryon Russel out of his shorts to hit what would be the game winning jump shot in the NBA Finals. This would be Jordan’s sixth title with the Chicago Bulls with the help from Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman just to name a few. Even with arguably the best basketball player that has ever lived, Michael Jordan, on your squad , it still helps to have the grandmaster of coaches at the helm, Phil Jackson. The series started with the Utah Jazz winning game one in overtime, but then the Bulls came back with a vengeance winning the next three. It appeared as it was going to be a quick series but then the Jazz came back to win game five in Chicago. But that is when the luck of Karl Malone and John Stockton ran out as Jordan and the Bulls win 87-86
