Three, two, one… Who do you want taking the shot as the clock winds down? It’s not always an All-NBA star and for some players it becomes their specialty, their calling card in the NBA. Bonus if you end up with a nickname due to your clutch shooting. Nicknames make everything better.
All of these players have no fear when it comes to “taking the shot,” regardless of whether it goes in or not. One consistent characteristic is that each player puts himself in position to either have the ball or receive it during crunch time. These are the guys that want to be down two, pulling up from beyond the arc with a chance to win! They don’t even think about the other option.
