In thirteen years with the Chicago Bulls, Michael Jordan led his team to six NBA championships, earning MVP honors each time. His career average of 31.5 points per game was the best in NBA history, and his 29,277 total points won him ten season scoring titles and made him the third all-time leading scorer in the league. His last-second shot in Game 6 of the 1998 Finals against the Utah Jazz clinched the Bulls' sixth title in a decade and marked Jordan's triumphant exit from the game of basketball.
