The Answer

How many times did the Michael Jordan Bulls lose an NBA Final game by 15-points or more?

Answer: One.

The Michael Jordan Bulls' lone 15 points or greater loss happened in game four of the 1996 NBA Finals against Seattle, 107-86.

As time goes on, more and more people compare LeBron James to Michael Jordan. But one thing Jordan never did was lose an NBA Final. In fact, Jordan's Bulls teams were 24-11 in six championship final appearances and wins.

In 1991, the Bulls defeated the Lakers 4-1, after losing game one 93-91. The following year, Chicago beat Portland 4-2. In 1993, the Bulls beat Phoenix 4-2. In their final wins in '96, '97 and '96, Chicago won series over Seattle and then Utah twice 4-2.

Meanwhile, James-led teams have now been to four NBA Finals. He led Cleveland to the NBA Finals in 2007 before being swept by the Spurs. In 2011, the Heat lost to Dallas 4-2. Miami won the next two NBA Finals over Oklahoma City and San Antonio in 2012 and 2013.

This time around, the Spurs crushed the Heat, winning by an average of 18 points in each game.

Sorry Lebron, just one more impossible hurdle to leap on the quest to claim The Greatest of All Time crown.
