The best 2nd option ever is probably Kobe.

Usual suspects. Depending if you like D or O more, Dwight or Harden. Westbrook, Parker/Duncan..

Last year.. Duncan or Parker i guess, whichever you consider #2. Hibbert was huge in the playoffs too.

Pippen had a pretty good playoff career as a 2nd option. Bill Russell was mostly a 2nd option offensively...

i think so,there have been a lot of great playoff runs by 2nd options
you have magic in 1980,taking over the mantle from kareem when he got injured and had the greatest playoff game ever
kobe in 01 going 30/7/6 ,kind of when he stepped out from shaq's shadow
parker in 07,eventually taking finals mvp

Ohhhhhh I misunderstood the question I thought OP was simply asking who was the best 2nd option on championship teams.

If we're talking 2nd options taking over 1st options then i guess not pippen
