Round: NBA Finals
Dates: June 3-June 14
Winner: Bulls, 4-2
Everyone knew that Michael Jordan was the world's greatest basketball player, but some folks decided to question it anyway. Billing the series as a matchup of superstars between MJ and Clyde Drexler, Jordan immediately set things straight, "shrugging off" 35 first half points in Game 1. The teams traded wins and were seemingly on course for a seventh game until Jordan's teammates led a 15-point fourth quarter comeback in Game 6 to seal back to back championships for the Bulls.
