It all comes down to this. The 20,000-strong crowd is screaming. The ball is in your hands with the clock counting down 3... 2...1... What do you do? All NBA players dream of making the last-second shot to win a game, but few are equipped to succeed. But the rare athlete who wants to have everything fall on them is special. They want the chance to send millions of people into a frenzy while silencing thousands simultaneously.

Buzzer beaters and clutch performances make sports exciting. Mere mortals would crumble when the world is on their shoulders, but the exceptional athletes who deliver in crunch-time deserve all the glory they earn. We at The Tylt want to know which NBA player you would trust with the final shot.

Bird may not have been bigger, stronger or faster than everyone in the NBA, but no one was more dependable when the game was on the line.

A 60-foot shot to send an NBA Finals game to overtime? No problem!
