In the history of the NBA, there are certain moments that stand out as "iconic." These include Magic Johnson's hook shot, Larry Bird's steal against the Lakers, Willis Reed playing hurt, Derek Fisher's catch-and-shoot with 0.4 seconds on the clock and that time Kwame Brown threw a cake at a fan.
However, all these moments pale in comparison to Jordan's dagger against the Jazz in 1998.
Jordan, isolated one-on-one with Bryon Russell, dribbled, busted out a devastating crossover that caused Russell to slip and fall (partly because Jordan gently pushed him, but whatever) and knocked down a game-winning jumper to cap off a 45-point night.
Bob Costas said it best on the broadcast: "If that's the last image of Michael Jordan, how magnificent is it?"
While it wasn't, Jordan's jumper against the Jazz to win one last title was the most spectacular moment of his career. With a career like MJ's, that's saying something.
