I don't know how to set up a poll, lol, so someone else please do it.


My vote, it is a tie between Shaq's performance, and LeBron's performance. But Shaq did it so many times, I felt LeBron did it against a tougher opponent in the Pistons, so I would have to give the edge to LeBron for best playoff performance of the decade.

It's between Lebron and Wade. Lebron's performance was absolutely amazing to watch; however, my vote goes to Wade just because the Heat was down by 13 points only 6 mins remaining on the game clock. Then he turned it 180 degree and provided one of the greatest perfomances in playoff history to win next four games and the title.

well, you have to look at the implications as well. Though the Lakers were down 1-0, I don't think Laker fans at the time were scared at all that they "might lose game 2", going down 0-2 heading to 3 games in Phili. We knew we were the better team the whole time, its just that AI exploded and made that memorable shot over Lue (then stepping over him). Lakeshow was still confident, thus went on to win the next 4 en route to a repeat (which will happen again this yr :))

Toss up between Lebron, AI and Wade for best scoring performance to give their team the win; toss up between Shaq and Duncan for best overall performance.

I'd take AI for the first and Duncan for the second.

If I remember correctly, that was not a series clinching game was it?(I could be wrong.)


The rest of the options are either finals games or semi-final clinching games.


If we are including all playoff rounds and just the best statistical games, there would be a ton of other options but these had the highest of importance.

Nope neither was AI's 54pt game or his 52pt game (both in the same series) against the Raps, or his 55pt game against the Hornets.

11-20-2009, 04:26 AM
I would give it to Wade based on a whole series performance. For a single game I think you have to give it to either AI, Lebron, or KG. No body else on those teams and KG had 21 boards and 32 points? Lebrons was so impressive because he did that to Detroit and that killer D. So he would probably get the nod from me. But AI going for 30 in the first half of that game was amazing. He made you think the Sixers really had a shot.

Duncan. Clinches the Finals, for one thing. Does it all for another. Spurs had 55 rebounds to New Jersey's 35, and shot .459 to their .345. 2nd time he got Finals MVP, as well, I think, and he was NBA MVP as well. This performance was great in itself, but also iced the total package.

Dirk Nowitzki in the western conference finals. Game 7, on the road, in SA. Mavs down 3 with little time left, Dirk drives to the rim on Ginobili hit's the bucket, and 1, takes over in OT. Biggest moment in a franchise, this has to be on the list!

1.) AI

Sixers vs. Lakers was David vs. Goliath

The Lakers hadn't lost in over a month and the league's largest superstar was going up against the league's smallest superstar. Nobody gave the Sixers a chance to win even 1 game in that series, and the league MVP came in and shocked the world.

The Sixers gave the Lakers everything they had in this game and in OT the Lakers scored the first 5 points and it looked like they had the thing won. But then AI stepped up and scored 7 straight points in OT and the Sixers came back and won the game.

This was the greatest moment for me a Sixer fan.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2.) Shaq
3.) D-Wade
4.) Duncan

I grouped these together on account that they were Finals performances. The bigger the stage, the more meaningful the performance IMO.

What about the context, Lakers were rusty from their huge layoff after dominating everyone. We saw in the next few games just how much of a one sided battle it would be.

To me its more legit if both parties are in the flow of the action. Like Bron was going up against a superior team, he dominated that game AND won the series. I dont like KG's cuz it was against a sorry team. Shaqs was good but not even his best Finals game. Duncans Im not sure of but I think that was probably his best finals game.

So the 2003 Nets and 2007 Pistons were better than the 2004 Kings? The Kings were #1 in the West for almost the entire season until Webber came back and ruined the chemistry.

You tell me, is it harder to put up #'s against a frontline that struggled to contain bigs (especially nimble face up athletes) all year, had no defensive presence. Or a team that boasts some of the games best defenders? HMMM......

I dont know if those were the teams being listed but of the teams you mentioned The Pistons were easily the last team youd want your star big facing. The double team ... scratch that, triple team of the Wallace Bro's + Dice that Duncan had to deal with was the biggest defensive obstacle any single player had to take on this decade, well aside from Shaq having to deal with Duncan-DRob.

Also Shaq had to deal with the DPOY and a great defensive PF/team overall, but nobody ever stood a chance stop Shaq in those days. Which is why when he faced the Nets he absolutely demolished them. Leading them to try and bring the guy who also got embarrassed but more than held his own 1 on 1. Also the fact that C-Webb was on the team hurts, Id have more respect for KG's accomplishment had C-Webb not partaken cuz he totally killed that team.

For this to be an "All Decade" , I just simply cannot believe that Kobe Bean Bryant isn't in the discussion as well... He's had many, many memorable performances in the playoffs this decade. For one, game 4 of the 2001 playoffs against Sacremento where he put up numbers of 48pts. and 16 rebounds. That's just one among many. I'm just wondering why he wasn't mentioned in this poll.
