Default Michael Jordan Game Winning Shots (article)

Quote:
Ask most GMs, coaches, players or fans to name that single player throughout the course of NBA history that they would choose to take the last second shot in a playoff game, and the likely consensus would be Michael Jordan.

No single player has recorded more iconic moments. “The Shot” against the Cleveland Cavaliers in 1989 served as the catalyst for a 10-year playoff run known as the “Jordan era”, while Michael Jordan’s game winning shot against the Utah Jazz in 1998 resulted in a storybook ending that helped the Chicago Bulls win their 6th and final championship. Jordan’s game winning/game tying shots have been indelibly etched into our consciousness and his name has essentially become synonymous with the word “clutch”.

However, has anyone actually accounted for both the makes and the misses? Do we really have an accurate understanding of how Michael Jordan has truly performed in playoff game winning/game tying shot situations with the game on the line?

so you are telling me, in all of Jordan's career. he has only take 16?

There is no way in God's earth those stats for Jordan are right.

Lebron already has 11 attempts and Kobe has 23.

There is no way possibly Jordan would only have 16 attempt through out his career in the last 24 seconds of a one possession game.

That statistics is wrong, period.

Kobe's played in 208 playoff games, Jordan 179. That's part of it. Another reason is that Kobe will force up a game winning FGA no matter how bad it is - that Jordan pass to Kerr in game 6 of the '97 Finals would have been an awful forced 20 footer over a double team if it was Kobe.

There was also an article that has been famously passed around that claims Jordan has only attempted 50 game winners in his career and made 25 of them.

Do you also believe that?

Lebron already has about 75 in 8 years.
Kobe about 118 in 14 years.
Jordan played how many years and had what? 50?

Don't let your love for mj cloud your judgment about what's true and what's straight up deception!

Surprisingly unbiased list....

Only "mistake" was that he counted 2 game winners in a SINGLE game, which is lame....you can't do that (bulls vs cavs game 5, 1989)

So taking that one out...Jordan is 50% in playoff game winners....BALLER!!!

this is fishy man......Jordan was a clutch God...we aint disputing that, but if you dont have the numbers just sya you dont have the numbers, dont just throw out the numbers you think you have. i find it hard to believe that Jordan only attempted 16 games winners in his illustrious career.

If you do that, you have to remove one of Kobe's and one of Lebron's, too.

We're talking about playoff game winners man. 16 game winners in 179 total playoff games is a pretty good number. I can't think of any game winners that he's missing, and I know a lot about Jordan's career

I looked at this few months ago and that's what I had too for his playoff career (8/15, minus double counting "potential game winner" wtf), so the numbers are right here.
