Great NBA players make their name in the playoffs by coming through at clutch time.

Everybody remembers Michael Jordan's famous "shot on Ehlo" in 1989 or Jerry West's half-court heave in the finals in 1970.

Jordan and West were transcendent athletes who thrived on being in the position to decide a game in crunch time.
