Goat: Gilbert Arenas
Game: Game 6, 2006 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
Washington was in the playoffs for just the second time since becoming the Wizards and LeBron James was in his first playoff series ever. After exchanging victories in the first four games, Cleveland took Game 5 and things came down to this: At the line with a chance to put the Wiz up by three, Gil missed the first free throw. Then LeBron walks up and reminds Gil that missing the second would all but guarantee a loss. Now with Arenas being the crazy bastard he is, maybe he dared Bron to make good on that threat. Or maybe the pressure got to him and he just missed. Either way, he lost.
