It was 20 years ago on Thursday that Michael Jordan broke the hearts of Utah Jazz fans the world over.
In what would ultimately be his final shot as a member of the Chicago Bulls, the GOAT hit a game-winner in the last seconds of Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals against the Jazz. It represented his sixth — and final — title as a member of the Bulls.
Now 55 years old, it seems that MJ is celebrating this anniversary with a bottle of tequila while strolling the streets of New York City.

Don’t judge, the GOAT deserves this party.
While a debate around the NBA world continues to rage regarding LeBron James’ status as potentially the greatest of all-time, Jordan himself was 6-0 in the NBA Finals.
Following his Cleveland Cavaliers four-game sweep at the hands of the Golden State Warriors in the 2018 NBA Finals, King James is 3-6 in the championship round. The comparisons end there.
Jordan’s tequila game adds to this in more ways than one.
Job well done.
