jordan, and i don't even think there should be too much argument. he's hit (i believe) 30 outright game winners not including free throws or game tying shots. i believe he hit 5 separate game winners in the finals and has a series winning assist. i can also think of three other playoff series ending game winners he has hit. he's also had game saving blocks and steals all over the place (two as a wizard come to mind and a couple in the playoffs as well).

bird maybe has a similar resume of clutch plays. i can't think of anybody else with that body of work.

Why would anyone even dispute this? Jordan hands down. You mean to tell me if you needed a game winner anyone wouldn't pick Jordan?

1.Jordan
2.Kobe
3.Pierce(IMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Michael Jordan

I would then pick Reggie Miller as the second one to take a game winner and then Kobe right behind him.

How are you guys not picking Bird after Jordan? Are you kidding me? It's obvious that its Jordan, Bird and then whoever else for third.

Jordan
West
Bird
Magic
Kareem
Russell
Kobe
Reggie
Worthy
McHale
Sam Jones
Hakeem/Isiah

are my 12-13 main contestants. Reggie (and Horry even more so) was a great clutch shooter, but he couldn't do much more in clutch situations. He couldn't play clutch defense, rebound or pass. Horry isn't even in my list, because he was basically a role player. All players I listed above could not only give you clutch plays, but classic, clutch performances in general. Horry? A 15-point playoff game by Horry is the analogy of a 30/40-point one by most of these players, and I just don't find this right.
