Was Shaq the type of player that you could trust with the game on the line. For a last second shot?

Maybe he took more such shots than other centers but as always, perimeter players are those who take those shots because they have more ways to score and besides, going in the post for the game winning shots won't work more often than not.

He was a good clutch FT shooter as well. I mean, good for his percentages.

Well. He he had one game winner his whole career in the regular season versus the Jazz. I think I remember correctly.

Outside of game winners, he was pretty good a making big free throws down the stretch. Yet... he was also pulled from the floor in close games too.

As far as I'm aware the guy didn't take the lasts hot, but when you needed scoring in the last few minutes he was the guy to go to and he performed.

Hmmm, wrong.

You tell me that the measurement of clutchness it's hitting FTs? And FYI, in clutch, Shaq shot better than his FT average, more often than not.
And he was clutch in general of course. It's not just FTs and it's not just offense.

Disregard the quote, I just wanted to let you know you were right about Chicago shutting down Miami, nice call. Glad I didnt bet against you.

He has a point, tho. Its rare to see any Center ( not just Shaq) make clutch plays down the stretch in a close game. Yes, he shot better at the FT line when it really mattered compare to his normal FT stats, but still that's not what you would want to see in a close game.

The thing with Shaq was that he always came up big in playoff games. The main reason why he was so dominant was his ability to dominate must win playoff games. He wasn't a great free throw shooter and went to Kobe at times in crunch time but he was a big time playoff performer.

Shaq was still a positive overall presence though and don't forget that in the last two minutes of a game, you can't hack.

He's clutch down on the post because he was big. That's all.
