Fact! We’ve said it before & we’ll say it again! Historically verifiable with video evidence. Players who may never otherwise be remembered, get a chance at immortality (and/or infamy!). Not every year has been covered, only the moments we felt were relevant to the case, and obviously the most memorable have been featured.
John Paxon | NBA Finals, Game 6
Sam Cassell | NBA Finals, Game 3
John Starks | NBA Finals, Game 7
2–18, 0–11 from three, the Houston Rockets’ game 7 MVP.
Nick Anderson | NBA Finals, Game 1
Anderson’s monumental choke job swung the Finals. It suddenly pulled the rug out from under a young Magic team’s dream run to the title and they never managed to recover. Had he made even one of these, we could have had a different champion.
Steve Kerr | NBA Finals, Game 6
‘…bailing Michael out again’
Bryon Russell | NBA Finals, Game 6
It’s never wise to anoint yourself the ‘Jordan Stopper’.
Avery Johnson | NBA Finals, Game 5
The ‘Little General’ comes through on the Big Stage…
Robery Horry | The Actual NBA Finals, Game 4
As a die hard early 2000′s Kings fan, I’ve never hated any shot more than this. THIS SHOT cost them the title (even more than the refs in game 6 did)
Robery Horry (again!) | NBA Finals, Game 5
Big Shot Rob’s 4th quarter and overtime is the only reason the Pistons didn’t repeat in 2005.
Leon Powe (who?) | NBA Finals, Game 2
What a time for Powe to play the game of his life…
Derek Fisher | NBA Finals, Game 4
Old Man Fish does it twice…
The Player Formerly Known As Ron Artest | NBA Finals, Game 7
In a game where Kobe couldn’t buy a bucket, it was Ron Ron who carried them to their repeat title.
Jason Terry | NBA Finals, Game 5
With the chance to put the mighty Heat down 3–2, Jet hit the shot of his life, with Lebron right in his face… ‘Hand down, man down!’
Mike Miller | NBA Finals, Game 5
The Heat managed to piece the ‘Walking Injured-List’ Mike Miller back together again to help clinch their first title of the big 3 era.
Jesus Shuttlesworth | NBA Finals, Game 6
‘Get those motherf*kin’ ropes out of here!’… THE greatest shot in NBA history…
