    The 1991 NBA Finals was the championship round of the 1990–91 NBA season. It was the very first NBA Finals broadcast by NBC after 17 years with CBS.
    The Chicago Bulls of the Eastern Conference took about the Los Angeles Lakers of the Western Conference for the title, together with Chicago having home court edge. It was Michael Jordan’s first NBA Finals appearance, Magic Johnson’s last, and the last NBA Finals for the Lakers before 2000. The Bulls would win the series. Jordan averaged 31.2 points about 56% shooting, 11.4 assists, 6.6 rebounds, 2.8 steals and 1.4 blocks en route to his first NBA Finals MVP Award.
    The series wasn’t the first time that Lakers and the Bulls confronted in the playoffs. Before 1991, they met four postseason series (1968, 1971, 1972 and 1973), all Lakers victories. Chicago was a member of the Western Conference at the moment and moved into the East in 1981. The first time the Bulls defeated the Lakers in a playoff series was indicated by the 1991 Finals.
    This series would mark the conclusion of this Lakers Showtime era and the start of the Bulls’ dynasty. After winning five championships in eight finals appearances in the 1980s, the Lakers would struggle for the remaining 1990s before winning five championships involving the 2000-2002 and 2009-2010 seasons.
    The 1991 Lakers were headed by Johnson, who was 32 and playing in what could be his last full season, as well as fellow All-Star teammate James Worthy; Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had two seasons earlier. The Bulls, led by NBA MVP Michael Jordan and superstar small forward Scottie Pippen, would win five championships after 1991 in a seven-year interval, cementing their status as a dynasty.
    When it was all said and done, Michael Jordan became only the third man in NBA history (after George Mikan and Abdul-Jabbar) to capture the scoring name and the NBA Finals Championship in precisely the exact same season.
    Until 2015, the Bulls were the last group to win an NBA championship despite fielding a full roster lacking in championship or Finals experience. None of the Bulls players had logged a moment of NBA Finals encounter.
