An inconsolable Michael Jordan fell to the floor after winning his first NBA championship with Chicago Bulls almost three years after the murder of his father, admitting he had been overwhelmed by the emotional turmoil he felt.
Jordan scored 22 points as a remarkable Bulls season ended with a 4-2 series win over Seattle SuperSonics on Father’s Day in the US in 1996, sending the NBA’s Most Valuable Player and top scorer to the floor in tears as he struggled to comprehend winning the title without his influential father, James, being present.
