June 14, 1998: You know, this one. It wasn't actually his last NBA shot -- that came years later, after his return with the Washington Wizards -- but this will always be Michael Jordan's signature late-career jumper.

Chicago Bulls with 85 points. Utah Jazz with 86. Just seconds left on the clock in Game 6. Then the drive on Bryon Russell, the cross-over, the pull-up and ... championship.
