Week 2: Question of the Week


Which current NBA player would you have take the game-winning shot?

Kris said:

There is only one current NBA player I would trust to have the ball at the end of the game; Kobe Bryant. Bryant has constantly proven himself in pressure situations; be it the NBA Playoffs, the regular season, or the Olympics. He is always calm and it seems as though his field goal percentage rises at the end of games. In my opinion, Kobe Bryant is the most dangerous player in clutch situations.
I chose Kobe Bryant over the likes of Lebron James and Dwayne Wade because of the 2008 Olympics Gold-Medal Game. Spain was close to making a comeback against the heavily favored Team USA and the game was shaping up to be another upset at the Olympics. But then, Kobe Bryant steps up and hits a three-pointer while getting fouled in the fourth quarter. That four-point play was the biggest play of the game because it turned the momentum in favor of Team USA.
If you need more reasons, then remember Game 4 of the 2000 NBA Finals when Shaquille O’Neal fouled out in overtime against the Indiana Pacers. Kobe Bryant carried the team and scored eight points in the extra period. Also, remember Game 4 of the 2006 First Round Playoffs; Suns vs. Lakers. Kobe makes the game-winning shot over 2 Phoenix Suns players in overtime. I can go on and on with this list, but I think I will stop it here for now.

Yes. You are smart and stuff, so like, what you wrote is correct and junk like that because, you're all smart and whatnot. and u brought up lyk history and sh*t to pro0ove you're point, y'know? Like the olypics game, like totally was true. I was like "whoa! michael phelps totally won again!" but like, it was Kobe, not phelps, because it wasn't in the water. So he's like Michael Phelps but on land, always winning in the end and stuff.

Wow Andrew... just wow...

Oh but I do agree because Kobe proves himself on and on again... and a purple knee brace probably helps his game just a bit too. Haha

No doubt, the rock has to go in Kobe's hand. One of the most clutched shooters during crunch time. It's just amazing to watch him shoot some of the most difficult shot and swishing it in. I wouldn't mind giving the ball to Chauncey Billups because he has a knack for making big shots during crunch time. He is known as Mr. Bigshot so I wouldn't mind giving him the ball for the last second shot, but of course Kobe would be my first pick.

True. True. Kobe has proven himself time and time again. But personally, being a Sacramento fan.......I can't give it up to him so easily. I hate that guy (or love to hate him...whichever)!

Bull i would put in the hands of Pierce and D-Wade before the self centered egotistical life form that you call kobe bryant

Bri said...

I think Steve Nash would also be a good choice for taking the game winning shot. One before your time would have been Pete Marivich.

Although from different places, but this perception is consistent, which is relatively rare point!
