1998 – In an 88-83 Chicago Bulls victory over the Indiana Pacers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Bulls advanced to their third consecutive NBA Finals. Michael Jordan’s game-high 28 points and eight assists led the way for the Bulls, and Toni Kukoc chipped in with 21 points.
Kukoc, who resides in Highland Park, Illinois, has not popped up in the NBA world recently. Meanwhile, Jordan finally got his Charlotte Bobcats (now the Hornets) to the playoffs in 2014. Since His Airness left Chicago, the Bulls have not made it to the Finals. If Carmelo Anthony moves to Chi-Town this offseason, he could team up with a healthy Derrick Rose, and they possibly bring some championships back to Chicago.
