Shooter: Steve Kerr
Game: Game 6, 1997 NBA Finals
Towards the end of Game 5 of the 1991 Finals, when Michael Jordan was struggling and the Lakers were intent on prolonging the series, Phil Jackson called a timeout. The Zen Master challenged his star player, asking him "Michael, who's open?" Jordan responded that Paxson was and Jackson asked him politely to get him the damn ball. Paxson would drill several crucial jumpers and the Bulls would celebrate their first NBA Championship. Six years later, with another chip in the balance, Jordan didn't need any instruction. Neither did Steve Kerr.
