You could very well argue that James' title-clinching jumper deserves the top spot, but LeBron doesn't get the opportunity to take that shot without Ray Allen's game-tying shot late in Game 6. The Spurs were five seconds away from celebrating their fifth title in South Beach on Tuesday night.
We were five seconds away from a summer of people talking about how the Heat need to break up the Big Three, how LeBron is 1-3 in the finals and can never catch Jordan. As we've gone over, LeBron had two mistakes in the final minutes of Game 6. That's what we'd be talking about if not for this play.
LeBron's legacy and the success or failure of the Big Three came down to this one shot ironically not taken by James, Wade or Bosh.
LeBron's clutch now! He can catch Jordan now! The Heat can be a dynasty!
All that's possible because Allen, without looking down, knew the exact spot in the corner to get to with five seconds left and drilled a jumper.
