    Flu game, perhaps? Jordan's 55-point game in the '93 Finals, or his six 3-pointers in the '92 Finals also come to mind.

    Beat me to it. First one I looked for, the flu game.

    I still remember the flu game. That was amazing.

    I would like to add Daniel "Boobie" Gibson to that list, given he is a second round rookie.

    When you look at LeBron's game as just "48 points" it really doesn't seem impressive, but when you start thinking of him scoring 25 consecutive points including all of his team's points in two overtimes and the final minutes of regulation it is just sick.
    I am trying to decide between LeBron and Jack Morris and think I am going to go with LeBron.

    True. But didn't Morris chase off the coaching staff when they asked if he wanted to go out for the 10th? Or something like that? Any Twink fans want to help me out on this?

    He only had a mere 19 points in the fourth quarter, thats all.

    All were wide open jump shots.

    The flu game, in a landslide. Dude was 35 freaking years old, scored 38, every clutch shot . . . absolutely amazing. Series had been tied 2-2.

    Truly transcendent.

    I refuse to say LeBron since it just happened. I mean, I know ESPN will sound like it was the greatest effort in history of sports, but c'mon.

    Jack Morris. 10 shutout innings is pretty damn clutch, and as close to being perfect as you can. Plus, it was Game 7.
