Scottie Pippen added 17 points and Dennis Rodman pulled down 19 rebounds for the Bulls, both coming on strong in the fourth quarter as the Bulls settled the seven-match series 4-2 on Sunday.
Jordan finished with nine rebounds, seven assists and two steals. He became the first man to win the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player award four times (1991-93, 1996) and just the second to add it to MVPs for the regular season and the All-Star Game in a single season. The New York Knicks' Willis Reed achieved a triple MVP in 1970.
It was Jordan's fourth title in his last four full seasons, following a bitter personal failure in the play-offs last year after he returned late in the season from minor league baseball.Reuse content
