Sunday’s finale of “The Last Dance” featured Michael Jordan’s final shot as a member of the Chicago Bulls to cap off his sixth and final ring of his career.
As expected, the playing of the shot brought up the conversation of whether Russell was pushed and whether an offensive call should’ve been called in the dying seconds of Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz.
Veteran referee Danny Crawford, who was one of the game officials during that game, once addressed the non-call and perfectly summed it up while standing by his decision to call absolutely nothing on the play.
This below angle might be the best evidence that may or may not change your mind on the matter.
The non-call resulted in what was one of the most memorable shots in NBA Finals history.
Bulls fans were elated while Jazz fans likely drowned in their own tears.
