It seems as though every basketball fan has his or her own definition of what constitutes a “clutch” basketball player.

I have always had one rule of thumb when judging a player to be clutch or not: The player must have a record of big performances in the most important games.
There are plenty of current and former Los Angeles Lakers who fit my rule for being a clutch player.
So who are the most clutch players in Lakers history? Who is No. 1?
