‹‹ Havlicek Steals the Ball

Jazz fans will argue to their death that it was an offensive foul. With 10 seconds remaining in Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals and the Bulls down 85-86, there was no doubt where the ball was going. The biggest surprise was that the Jazz allowed Bryon Russell to defend Jordan one-on-one.

Jordan got the ball near the top of the key, drove to his right before pulling back to his left (possibly using his left hand to push Russell off) then rose up and drained the jumper while leaving his hand up in the air. It capped his sixth championship in eight years and and it was his last shot with the Chicago Bulls.
