Last shot as a Bull

June 14, 1998: The moment forever will be suspended in basketball time. As the final seconds ticked away in Game 6 of the Finals in Salt Lake City, Jordan pounded his dribble at the top of the circle against defender Bryon Russell. Jordan drove right, created space with a not-so-subtle left-handed push of Russell, crossed over and swished a 17-footer with 5.2 seconds left, propelling the Bulls to an 87-86 victory and their sixth NBA title. Jordan posed with his right arm extended after the basket, making his last shot as a Bull arguably the most memorable of his 15-year NBA career.
