There are certain images that are deeply embedded in the history of the NBA. There's the famous photo of Red Auerbach smoking a cigar on the sidelines in the Boston Garden as the Celtics are about to win the championship. The great decade of the 1980s was defined by the picture of Magic Johnson and Larry Bird fighting for position under the basket. Michael Jordan's game-winning shot in Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals not only captured Jordan's greatest moment but it also displayed the priceless reaction of the Utah fans as the Bulls inch closer to their sixth NBA title.
