Jordan's iconic final shot as a Bull requires a deep rewind | 1998 NBA Finals Game 6
Michael Jordans iconic final shot against the Utah Jazz gets a bit of extra context as to how iconic it really was

Follow by Email
Michael Jordan's shot with 5.2 seconds left to clinch the 1998 NBA Finals in Salt Lake City is one of the most memorable moments in postseason history. But how we got there involves Scottie Pippen's back, Dick Bavetta's sense of time and space, and Antoine Carr's sweet, sweet rec specs.

Craig Allen Bodenschatz : This. This is incredible in every way. It’s all the things I have forgotten since, or didn’t catch when, I was a kid and a Jordan maniac.

Keaundrey Clark : The Jazz scored 54 points in a finals game. Holy hell.

Josh Castro : This video is so well made I was confused it wasn’t Jon Bois

Kaustubh Tandon : That LBJ reference was gold. Mj was and is the goat though

McJohnson : Ooh, this is a well put together video. If this is a new series, I'm all in.

jumpstart55million : Damn...Jordan was on a different level.

wavenstein : According to today's sports talk media. This is not a clutch shot because the buzzer didn't go off.

Jtbuckets : I hate how all these 15, 16 and 17 year old that have never picked up a basketball say he played against weak competition

Hugo lopez : Do a deep rewind for the david tyree catch in the superbowl

Jamees Woodhouse : Drogba in the champions league final 2012 , late goal and winning penalty

Wis Dom : These Bulls are the oldest team to ever win an NBA championship! Their hearts ignored the fact that they were old, hurt and shooting poorly.

Shannon Sharpe Strange : Shannon Sharpe forgot to mention that everybody on the 98 squad was 33 and older compare to LeBron squad

Benjamin Kassel : 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Great video. Can’t wait for more of these. Some ideas: — Denkinger’s blown 1985 call — Bill Buckner in 1986 (May be good to mention his 1974 blunder as a Dodger too) — The Islanders winning their first Cup in 1980 on Bob Nystrom’s OT goal — David Freese in Game 6, 2011 — Havlicek stealing the ball — The New York Rangers’ Curse of 1940 and 1994 triumph, with a focus on the final two rounds — Bobby Orr’s flight in winning the Cup in 1970 — The Miracle on Manchester — Brad May and “May Day” — And finally, it’s little less universally appreciated, but a good one: The Avalanche winning the Stanley Cup in their first year in Denver. It could focus on the end of their time in Quebec, the famed Patrick Roy trade, and the final against the Panthers and their barrage of rats.

NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES : that lebron pic in the back nice oh yeah yeah

dako91196 : This was a great video guys

Isaiah Watson : NBA needs to go back to the best of 5 games in the first rounds

Jeremy Leung : you guys should put on some instant replays or play the clip a few times - it's a lot of buildup only to have the climax last 3 seconds, let us savor the moment even more

TK14 NBA : Do Derek Fisher 0.4 seconds Larry Bird steal against Isiah Thomas Ray Allen game tying 3 against the Spurs

Carl Padua : the SALT in this comment section is hilarious 😂 Push-off this. Cheating that. Rigged this. NBA protection that. keep whining. bums. 🖕

Mazen Abu Ghazaleh : i know its recent, but a breakdown on kyries shot on curry in game 7 of 2016 or ray allen 3 in game 6 in 2013 would be cool

June Amarillo : Only reason Jordan retired after the 1998 season was because the Bulls owner didn't wanna bring back Phil Jackson as head coach.

Pablo Martinez : CONTEXT is everything. Great video as always.

Lincoln Chambers : Do a rewind on game 2 of the 2011 NBA Finals: how the unlikely Mavs wound up in the Finals against the big 3, how miami handled game 1, and as they were dominating in the fourth quarter of game 2, Dwyane Wade makes a corner three to put the Heat up 15 with only seven min left. Talk about how Dirk had a reputation of choking in the playoffs, being "soft", and had already lost a Finals against D wade. But as Wade made that corner three, he held his follow through right in front of the Mavs bench... Long story short Dallas makes a furious comeback, shifts the entire momentum of the series (although the Heat would win game 3, Nowitzki had a chance to tie at buzzer) and Mavs ultimately end up winning championship. Hmu w a job too cuz these things come easy to me

Antonio Harris : Somebody needs 2 show this to UNCLE shay sharpe. & everybody else who says Jordan had more help

J. A. Greene : I'd love to help you with different football games, such as: 1998 NFC Championship Game (Gary Anderson's miss) 1999 Bills @ Titans (Music City Miracle) And whatever else you can think of football wise.

Jtbuckets : Just pure greatness this is what makes him the Goat

Alex Leed : Love this series! Do Ray Allen's infamous 3 point shot to win Game 6 of the 2013 NBA finals please. A fun fact: radamel falcao, one of the best soccer players in the world at that time was right behind ray allen when the shot was made.

Facts Only : All my life I though Jordan crossed up Malone their🤔I was wrong😂😂

Herv3 : do we need a creepy background photo of LeBron James doing his his post victory Bald Bull impression?

Alfonso Adauy Rock : Go for the Uefa Champions League Final between Bayern an Man. United. Two goals in stoppage in favor on MANUTD. Amazing match. 1999

Matt Kominsky : Who is here after watching space jam rewinder

Rare80 : Why isn’t Toni Kukoc in the Hall Of Fame?

Charles Gonzalez : dude please make more of these. It would be dope for people to actually know the moments that we remember not just the stats or the achievements... and for the people saying push off just look at his body before MJ even puts his hand on him lmaoo he's already crossed before it happened

Malaquias Popocateptl : Push off? That boy got shook off. Game.

Mr. Miles : I forgot that MJ stole the ball too!
