Jordan took over in dramatic fashion Sunday, making the key plays down the stretch as the Bulls beat the Jazz, 87-86, to win their sixth NBA title in eight seasons. But the future of Jordan, Coach Phil Jackson (right) and forward Scottie Pippen remains uncertain.

    Could Jordan Get Any Better?
    The only thing that could have made Michael Jordan's game-winning performance in Game 6 of the NBA Finals was if it happened in a Game 7, writes The Post's Michael Wilbon. Now, the NBA, the fans and the world will have to wait to see if Jordan will back for another curtain call.
