In the NBA, crunch time is the most critical part of the game.
It can either be a time of sheer determination and glory or a time of anxiety and loss. Crunch time truly separates the winners from the losers.
In order to shine on the brightest stage and bring glory to their team, a player must possess a certain skill, a killer instinct. This instinct is the skill of being "clutch."
However, there are only a few players in the NBA, currently, who thrive under pressure.
There are a lot of statistics that differentiate between clutch and non-clutch players, and I can create a list based on those statistics alone.
But, what's the fun in that?
I created this list on a simple basis: the player I would want to take the shots or make the best passes during the most important time of the game. Defense and experience in the clutch are taken into account, too.
