Jordan's game-winner vs. Utah

The greatest player of all-time had the ball, his team down a point and his sixth championship one basket away in 1998. Michael Jordan shook defender Byron Russell (with a slight push) and got a clean look from near the free-throw line. With that, Jordan had his perfect ending -- at least in a Bulls jersey. Although he came back later to play for the Wizards, MJ's shot against Utah is the lasting image of his career.
