Michael Jordan's Last 12 Minutes with the Bulls (with TV Ads)

I was mesmerized by this 40 minute video of the fourth quarter of game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals between the Chicago Bulls and Utah Jazz. It ended up being the last 12 minutes Jordan would ever play for the Bulls.

The original ads being in there make it even better as it feels like you're watching it again in real-time. That first Nike ad about the kid who wouldn't pass was pretty epic.

Then, there's the game itself. Jordan makes three plays in a row in crunch time that are remarkable. In fact, it's reminiscent of the plays LeBron James made in the final moments of the Cavs game 7 win against the Warriors last month.

It's also interesting how the lack of replay factored into this game. Harper makes a shot for the Bulls that wouldn't have counted today, and the Jazz made a 3 earlier in the game that would have counted today. That's a 5-point swing in a 1-point decisive game.

Enjoy Jordan's last title. It's as good as I remember it.
