Michael Jordan won six NBA championships with the Bulls in the ’90s, winning all six Finals MVPs along the way. His Airness also captured five MVPs in the regular season.
NBA fans were glued to their seats over the summer when “The Last Dance” docuseries came out. The Jordan doc was moved up early since sports fans needed something to watch following the suspension of sports leagues due to COVID-19.
Jordan is universally recognized as the greatest player in NBA history. He finished his pro career with averages of 30.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists with the Bulls and Washington Wizards.
Early on in the doc, Jordan talked about how he wouldn’t have won any of his titles without Scottie Pippen, who is one of the best two-way players in league history.
MJ and Pippen are unarguably the greatest duo in basketball history, as they went 6-0 in the Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers, Portland Trail Blazers, Phoenix Suns, Seattle SuperSonics and Utah Jazz (twice).
