Avery Johnson
Imagine Reggie Jackson hanging it up the night he hit three homers to win the '77 Series. Or Bobby Orr walking off the ice after his airborne goal won the Cup in '70. That's the dramatic exit Michael Jordan made in 1998. If only No. 23 had stayed retired. The shot that introduced us to MJ won an NCAA title. The last shot we remember won a sixth NBA crown. Those should've been the bookends to basketball's most brilliant career.

It was the Admiral's title. It never would've happened without Tim Duncan. But it was made possible by the smallest man on the court. Avery Johnson, the journeyman 5-foot-10 point guard with the awkwardly slow left-handed release, drained a wide-open 18-footer to silence the World's Most Famous Arena and give the Twin Towers their first of two championships.
