The NBA season has just ended, leaving us to reflect on the Miami Heat winning their second consecutive championship.

Like all the champs that preceded them, the Heat needed some clutch shots along the way to come out on top.

Ray Allen's three-pointer in Game 6 with their season on life support was as clutch as it gets. 

It ranks right up there with Magic Johnson in 1987, Michael Jordan in 1991 and 1998 and Robert Horry in 2005.

The plays by the guys mentioned above all contributed mightily to their respective teams winning a title. 

That's not what this article is about. We're going to swim upstream and look at some of the greatest shots made by players who weren't quite able to win the Finals series they were in.

These shots are still iconic, but to a lesser degree.

We can only imagine how legendary they would be if their teams had been able to hoist the trophy in that particular year.

Let's have a look.
