If you could pick one star player to help you win one game, and your life was hanging in the balance, who would that one player be that you could depend on? And Why?

Probably Kobe or Wade since they've done it when it matters most.

Can't go wrong with Lebron though.. (only mention him because I know i'll get bashed if I don't)

Wilt only won 1 ring as "the man" and that in the era where he was a man among boys. I don't get why you would choose him over someone like Kobe or Duncan or Shaq?

IMO Wilt's overrated, he was the only athletic beast playing in the '60s and that at 300lbs.

If I'm gambling my life, I'm picking a player who will dominate the game that's supposed to save me. Sounds like a one-off situation and in that case, I'm picking one of the game's most dominant of all time. He was absolutely unstoppable in his time. There's also a good case to be made for prime Shaq, and TD is one of my favourite all time players, but he isn't dominant in the same way. And as far as Kobe is concerned, I'll never forget the way he was flattened when the Celtics won their most recent championship. I'll stick with my picks. Which three players would I want the ball to be in the hands of if my life was on the line? MJ, Wilt, and Magic, in that order.

Wade>You

Wilt was an man amongst boys and still couldnt win but once. My main man Magic even lost in the finals going 5 out of 8 if i remember correctly. If my life was on the line and i had to chose an basketball player to save me it would have depend on the defender. If its an small guard i'll go with Jordan because his hands are to strong for them to ripp the ball away, and if its an Battier, or Artest type player I'll go with Kobe because Phil says, and iv'e seen he's better at making tougher, and more contested shots.

IMO Wilt's overrated, he was the only athletic beast playing in the '60s and that at 300lbs.

Care to provide any proof to these statements cuz if taken literally they are filled with holes. Im guessing Wilt being Finals MVP doesnt count as "The Man", Wilt didnt approach the 300 figure until the 70's maybe in the 60's but definitely not early 60's. And the rest of your post was false as well. Hope you defend it this time

It depends when it comes to current players. If the player knows my life is on the line I'd go with Lebron because he'd physically dominate the game getting to the line at will.

If they didn't know my life is on the line you have to go with the guy that naturally have the drive to want to win every game he plays in. Kobe Bryant.
