There is good players. There is great players. There are all stars. Then, there is clutch players. Clutch moments are what define a career. Clutch moments are what separate great players and legendary players.
1. Kyrie’s Game 7 Shot
Most clutch shot in NBA history. No doubt. Cavs are tied at 89 with the warriors with a little under a minute left, and Irving cooks Curry to drain the 3 over him. By doing so, the Cavs were able to comeback from down 3-1 and win their first franchise title. Definitely Kyrie’s career defining moment.
2. Ray Allen Sends Game 6 to Overtime
Another career defining moment right here. Heat were already down 3-2 in the series, and down 3 with the clock ticking, Ray hits a rushed corner 3 to force overtime, where the Heat would pull away with the win and force a game 7, which they also won to secure the championship.
3. “The Shot”
This shot is called “The Shot” for a reason. Yes it may be a series winner in the first round, but this shot really showed us that Jordan was capable of leading the Bulls franchise to a championship (which he did two years after hitting this shot).
