NBA: Who Do You Want Taking the Last Shot?

In the past thirty or so years, the NBA has boasted a handful of players who could take center stage in the waning moments of a game.

In the 1980s, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson both longed for the basketball as the final seconds ticked off the clock.

And the 1990s obviously featured the heroics of Michael Jordan, but there were others as well, such as Reggie Miller.

Unfortunately, the early 2000s lacked players who could make clutch last second plays. Kobe Bryant could enact greatness, but there weren't many potent threats besides him. Perhaps Chauncey "Mr. Big Shot" Billups was the next most fearsome player late in games. Or maybe Robert "Big Shot Bob" Horry.

Now, there are a handful of players who are formidable in the game's closing seconds. In fact, it's quite a debate to discern which one would most like to take the last shot in a tight game.

Here are the player rankings of the most fearless competitors in the game's final seconds.
