Yeah, I bet you saw this coming.

This was probably the only unanimous decision on the list. Michael Jordan, who had made quite an impact towards the latter part of the 80s, just kept getting better. He finally managed to defeat the Detroit Pistons and go on to win his first title in 1991. After that, the NBA became his playground. He won two more titles in the following two years to complete his first three-peat.

At the end of the 1993 Finals, Jordan made an abrupt decision to retire from basketball and pursue baseball. But, the basketball gods were on our side and sent him back to us towards the end of the 1995 regular season.

After a second-round loss, the Bulls looked better than ever the following year. Jordan along with Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman led the Bulls to another three-peat between 1996 and 1998.

Jordan also won a host of individual honors. He was an All-Star and in the First-Team in every full season that he played during the decade. He was also a seven-time scoring champion and two-time leader in steals in the 90s. He was named MVP in 1991,1992,1996 and 1998 and was also named Finals MVP in all six years that he won the title.

At the end of the 1998 season, he retired once again before coming back 2001.
