We already saw a lot of beautiful buzzer beaters and clutch shots in this season(Jeff Green's one was superb) and usually shots like that fire the crowd. But,since we have a ton of magnificent clutch shots in history I want you to do a to list of the clutch shots that made "history" for you,that you will remember for your entire life.

I didn't made a list yet,still working on it,but I'd appreciate your suggestions.

.4 by D. Fisher

Brandoy Roy vs Rockets in playoffs from deeeeep.

Kobe over Wade

LBJ (in Cavs) vs Orlando

Wade when he stole a ball and then made something which looked like a tear drop from the 3pt

And the most remember of all time :

MJ vs Utah Jazz

0.4 Fisher must be in all lists,it was unreal.
I'd put also the 13 clutchest point of all time of T-Mac,even if it was a regular game.
Mj for sure against Utah
Kerr also,he doesn't get the spot he deserves often
The running hook by Magic against Boston
Horry's dagger against the Kings
Artest 2010 against the Suns
Kobe 2000 against the Suns
Allen against the Spurs(awesome)
Absolutely Reggie Miller on Mj

I know there are a lot more of these shots,share your opinions!

Robert Horry's performance during Game 5 of the 2005 Finals was the most ridiculous clutch performance I've seen.

I think "clutch" is so much more than just last shots. So, before I just talk iconic last shots...

Everything in this post is just my lifetime.

T-Mac's 13 points in 35 seconds tops all of these in terms of waning seconds clutch play.
LeBron in ECF Game 5 2007 also is the most memorable clutch performance in my old-enough-to-REALLY-remember-stuff life...followed perhaps again by his 2012 Game 6 vs. the C's. Jordan did that stuff, but I was often too young to REALLY appreciate it.
AI dropping 48 against the mighty mighty Lakers too...one of my earliest Finals memories.
Flu Game


But since this just asks for one shot, the ones I remember most fondly, in reverse chronological order. Not saying they're the best ones, or all of the best ones...just the ones I think of personally.

Ray-Ray last year
LeBron 2012 ECF Game 6 vs the C's
Dirk in 2011 had a lot of moments worthy of anyone's list, hit that game winning layup in Game 2 Finals, ran back and contseted Wade's prayer
LeBron in 2009 vs. Orlando
Horry vs. Detroit 2005
Kobe's ultimate Hero Ball moment - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79y_YCkHhso
Fisher 0.4 Seconds
Jordan vs. Byron Russell 1998 - The GOAT
Jordan vs. the Knicks - they didn't win, but that was such a tough Hero Ball shot. Still amazing

I predict that Dwight making a clutch FT in the playoffs this year will be considered a clutch shot of all time..

They are all clutch to the same degree. I don't value one shot over another because the "clutch" feeling always exists.

Jerry West 3/4 quarter buzzer beater to force OT in the NBA Finals has gotta be the most clutch shot ever even though they don't win the game (shows the resiliency of those Knicks teams).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Txl1_sVerNk

One that doesn't get talked about a lot because again they lose in OT, but I remember watching this live and have been a huge Chauncey fan ever since. This is where Mr Big Shot was born in my eyes.

I was 11 and remember running around my buddy's apartment complex with an H20 Knicks jersey tied around my head like a turban screaming my balls off in utter joy. I even remember it was an early day game - crazy what type of **** sticks in your brain - I can't remember one thing I learned in college.

Yep. I was 12 in my parents bedroom watching on a small tv (maybe 11"?) jumping on their bed (not a Knicks fan but it was exciting). I also remember it being daytime. Must have been a Saturday.

It was daytime.I was so young but I remember it clearly. I think my dad held his breath until it went though the hoop. He went crazy so naturally so did I. One of my first memories as a knick fan. Houston was my favorite player from there on.

those are the most clutch shots/performances I've watched live. Chauncey half court shot vs the Nets to tie the game in the playoffs was sick too!

Don't forget about AI hitting the step back over Lue then straight walking over him. Classic.

Kobe's fade away over 2 defenders against Phoenix to ice the game in 2010 playoffs was pretty sick too. Right in front of Gentry, gave him a tap on the way down the court and Gentry looked like "this mutha.......
