The Impressive Fact About Michael Jordan's Playoff Runs


A big part of the reason Michael Jordan is considered the G.O.A.T. stems from his 6-0 record in the Finals.

The NBA Finals are literally the two best teams in the league facing off. For his Bulls to not lose a single series to the best West team in six total attempts is a really impressive feat, to say the least. This fact is the thing that holds guys like LeBron James (who has a 3-5 record) back from being considered the greatest.

Even with this in mind, it's actually another impressive stat, which goes under-the-radar, that may be even more impressive.

In his playoff runs, Michael Jordan played in 24 series in which his team was considered the favorite. He went undefeated in every single one of those matchups.

To handle business in that fashion, without fail a single time? It's a hard thing to do, especially considering the competition he had back then.

This all ties into what makes Jordan such a remarkable player. He has the stats, the flash, and the swagger. But it's his ability to get the job done that really sets him apart from the rest.
