The NBA Finals began in Chicago, and the first quarter of Game 1 proved that the Bulls had quite a task at hand. The Bulls had lost just fives games at Home during the regular season, and trailing the Blazers after the first period kept Bulls fans on the edge of their seats. For the Bulls to pull out a victory, Michael would need to perform above his standards, and that, he did; Jordan finished with 35 points by half-time (an NBA Finals record), and hit six three-pointers in the process – the bulk of that half-dozen coming on a scoring flurry in the second quarter. By the time Jordan hit his sixth three-pointer, he had given the Bulls a 17-point lead; Marv Albert screamed ‘YES!’ for the sixth time and Michael looked toward the scorers table, completely baffled as to how those long-range jumpers were going in. In a post-game chat with Ahmad Rashad, Michael provided some clarity: “I was in a zone. My threes felt like free-throws, man. I really didn’t know what I was doing, but I was taking them and they were going in, so, they really helped the game.”

The definitive Game 1 victory helped navigate the Chicago Bulls to their second consecutive NBA Championship as they defeated the Portland Trail Blazers in six games. The Blazers put up a valiant effort through the first four games as the Series was tied at 2-2 by Game 4’s end, but Michael and Bulls re-took the momentum with a Game 5 victory behind Jordan’s 46 points. The Bulls never wavered in their confidence and soon enough, they were hoisting another Championship trophy above their heads!

The main reason why I bought the Raptors that was releasing this weekend, and sold my DMP pack. I just didn't feel right with the DMP VIIs on my feet. Didn't feel like a piece of history, like I'm hoping the Raptors this weekend will. Can't wait to get mine.
