I am not a PP fan. But I have to admit I would want him to have the ball in his hands at the end of the game (after Kobe). PP is a winner. He wants the ball

Game on the line? Hm, in what situation? Out of those players, all of them excel in different situations during clutch time. For example...

7 to 24 seconds to go, you are down 1-2 or more points or tied and you need somebody who can most efficiently get a high percentage basket/baskets or get to the freethrow line or both (and1).:

1. Lebron James
2. Dwyane Wade
3. Carmelo Anthony
4. Kobe Bryant
5. Paul Pierce
6. Kevin Durant
7. Derrick Rose
8. Dirk Nowitzki

10 seconds to go, you are down 2-3 points and you need somebody who can most efficiently make jumpshots.:

1. Dirk Nowitzki
2. Carmelo Anthony
3. Kevin Durant
4. Kobe Bryant
5. Paul Pierce
6. Lebron James
7. Dwyane Wade
8. Derrick Rose

1-3 seconds to go, you are down 1-3 points or tied and you need somebody who is the best at making such difficult most often uncontrolled of-balance jumpshots, most often from longrange.:

1. Kobe Bryant
2. Lebron James
3. Paul Pierce
4. Carmelo Anthony
5. Dwyane Wade
6. Dirk Nowitzki
7. Kevin Durant
8. Derrick Rose

Overall you could say Kobe & Lebron are hands down the best clutch players.

There is a reason they are always ranked 1 & 2 in Clutch stats:

2010-11 season: http://www.82games.com/1011/CSORT11.HTM

2009-10 season: http://www.82games.com/0910/CSORT11.HTM

I like these stats since they consider the entire effect of being "clutch", which means not only baskets you put up, but the gamesaving/gamewinning blocks, steals, rebounds and assists! Thats what the best clutch player is, somebody who radically raises his level when it matters the most in any facit of the game and as you can see like Lebron & Kobe upside there they show the most such productions down the stretch.

If I need a player to keep me in a game with 5 minutes to go I'm going with LeBron, for a last second shot to tie or win the game I rather die or just forfeit.

I will give my life to Ray Allen in those situations. :)

Default Re: Rank the following players

Dirk
Melo
Kobe

but it's very close, can't go wrong with either one, depending on the situation. The rest doesn't really matter, cause all of those above guys have shown they can shoot from anywhere on the court with 1000 faces in their hands if the game is on the line.

By "ball in their hands with the game on the line" I mean in any situation where you need a do or die bucket. In a scenario where you are down 1-3 points with time running down on the clock and if you make it, the game is over, if you miss, you lose.
